Article: Preparing Physics Teachers at Chicago State - May 2, 2012
Site leaders at PhysTEC supported site Chicago State University (CSU) have published an article in the May 2012 edition of The Physics Teacher titled "A Collaboration Between University and High School in Preparing Physics Teachers: Chicago State University's Teacher Immersion Institute." CSU is now exploring exciting changes to its physics teacher preparation program by utilizing the expertise of Chicago Area teachers and early teaching experiences for students interested in, but not yet committed to, the physics teaching profession.
Are you concerned about the number of majors in your department? Would you like to build a thriving undergraduate program? APS in conjunction with AAPT will be holding a workshop to assist departments in developing strategies for increasing the number of physics majors. Institutions are encouraged to come as teams of two or more to help develop effective, workable plans that can be implemented on their campuses. Plenary speakers Carl Wieman, Office of Science and Technology Policy and S. James Gates Jr., University of Maryland, will contribute their insights on the topic as well.
Space is limited and will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, so register early.
