the Physics Teacher Education Coalition
Many PhysTEC sites have recruited local physics teachers to form Teacher Advisory Groups (TAGs), which meet regularly with department faculty to help improve pre-service teacher preparation. TAGs can serve several functions within a teacher preparation program. Several programs have benefited from the advice and expertise that local teachers were able to provide. TAGS can also become communities where teacher networks form, and where pre-service teachers can meet and learn from experienced working teachers.
