J-TUPP is a joint task force convened by the American Physical Society (APS) and the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) and is charged with preparing a report that will engage and inform physicists in answering the question:
The report should provide guidance for physicists considering revising the undergraduate curriculum to improve the education of a diverse student population. The report should include recommendations on content, pedagogy, professional skills, and student engagement. Wherever possible, the report should describe documentable student outcomes.
This charge has been approved by the Executive Boards of both the APS and AAPT.
