Ninety new physics and astronomy faculty attended a 3-day workshop at the American Center for Physics in College Park last November, to absorb new ideas in pedagogy from leading practitioners and researchers in physics education. The workshop is run annually by the American Association of Physics Teachers, in partnership with the APS and the American Astronomical Society, with funding provided by the National Science Foundation.
