My SACS AAPT presentation on the Global Physics Department
This Saturday at 9:15am, I’ll be giving a presentation on the Global Physics Department at the Spring meeting of the Southern Atlantic Coast Section of the American Association of Physics Teachers hosted by the University of Georgia in Athens.
Here’s the abstract:
The Global Physics Department (GPD) is a weekly online gathering of college and high school physics teachers that has become a very convenient and powerful form of profes- sional development for physics teachers across the globe. Past meetings have included presentations from prominent scientists, textbook authors and many experts in Physics Education Research. This presentation will outlinethe founding of the GPD, some high- lights from past meetings, and discuss current and future plans, including its latest online coaching initiative, where physics teachers are able to submit teaching videos to the group for substantial feedback from a large and diverse collection of physics teachers.
Here are the slides from the presentation:
