To join any of the following lists, click on the link which will take you to a web page where you can register for the list and become an active participant.
Advanced Labs: advlabs
This list facilitates the communication between people who teach or who are otherwise interested in undergraduate advanced physics laboratories. We know that many people teach such labs, often in isolated environments. We hope this list will foster improved teaching by the sharing of information on successes and failures, and will bring a sense of community to teachers of advanced labs. More information can be found here: http://www.aapt.org/advlabs
Introductory Physics for the Life Sciences: IPLS
A discussion list to enable communication between people who teach or
who are interested in the pedagogy of introductory physics as it
relates to the life sciences.
A list to enable communication with those who attended the Workshop for New Physics and Astronomy Faculty. For more information about the Workshop for New Physics and Astronomy Faculty, visit the website at www.aapt.org/Conferences/newfaculty.cfm.
The Physics First list is intended to promote communication on the pros and cons of teaching Physics First. You are encouraged to share your ideas, your success stories, your concerns and your failures. We encourage interested teachers to join this listserv.
