Anne Cox, a longtime OSP collaborator and ComPADRE contributor presented a plenary talk titled "Mission Possible" at the 2021 Summer Meeting of the American Association of Physics Teachers upon reception of the Halliday and Resnick Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Physics Teaching.

Abstract: When you know your mission, you know what you do better than, different than, other than... for you alone do." (attributed to Robert Hutchins, President of the University of Chicago, 1929- 45) What is it that we, physics teachers, do that is unique--what is our mission and why have we chosen to accept it? I will reflect on what I have learned about physics teaching from many of you as I celebrate our joint mission, share pedagogical strategies, and highlight challenges ahead. This talk will be grounded in the tools of our trade: simulations, laboratories, video analysis, and makerspaces. But it will also acknowledge the human side of physics and the ways in which we connect with each other and our students, particularly through mentoring and JEDI-B work (Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging). And yes, there may be a Star Wars reference or two along the way. "Access to a dark night sky--to see and be inspired by the universe as it really is--should be a human right, not a luxury for the chosen few." (Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, The Disordered Cosmos, p. 165)
