New Faculty Commencement Conference
July 25-27, 2014
in tandem with the AAPT National Summer Meeting July 26-30, 2014
University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN
There are three major goals of the commencement conference.
- To present participants of the New Faculty Experience with another set of instructional strategies that can be used to teach introductory physics at two-year colleges. Likely topics will include ICP21, Spiral Physics and project-based physics.
- To allow the participants to share with each other and the leaders what they have accomplished during the New Faculty Experience. Each participant will present to the group either through a poster or an oral presentation.
- To introduce participants to the larger community of physics teachers and the professional growth opportunities available at a national AAPT meeting. During the Two-Year College breakfast and Committee on Physics at Two-Year College’s semi-annual meeting, participants will be introduced to other Two-Year College instructors and friends. We will also have sessions allowing participants to present at the national meeting the posters or oral presentations they prepared for the commencement conference.
