Conference Theme: This spring, many of us suddenly became online teachers! What if we end up needing to go back online in the fall? At least there will be time to prepare…so in order to be prepared, this conference will feature the great ideas that the members of the PICUP community have come up with for how to teach physics in an online setting! Please consider joining us to hear about tips, tricks, and best practices. (Register above.)
