The Physics Teacher Education Coalition (PhysTEC) project is soliciting proposals for new sites. To date, PhysTEC has funded over 40 institutions to educate greater numbers of highly qualified physics teachers.
We expect to fund up to four comprehensive sites to substantially increase the number of physics teachers and address all PhysTEC key components. Initial proposals will be due mid-April; full proposals (if invited) will be due in July; and funding begins August 2019.
If interested, you are encouraged to attend the 2018 PhysTEC Conference, where a workshop will be held about the request for proposals.
A webinar will also be held after the 2018 PhysTEC Conference on February 13, 2018 to answer any questions regarding the request for proposal process.
Undergraduate and graduate women in physics are welcome to attend a 2-hour seminar on Sunday, March 4. The seminar, led by Dr. Homeyra Sadaghiani, a professor of physics at Cal Poly Pomona, will focus on professional skills that students can use to negotiate a position in academia, industry or at a national lab, interact positively on teams and with a mentor or advisor, think tactically, articulate goals, enhance their personal presence, and develop alliances. Participants will be eligible for one-night hotel reimbursement. Register at the Diversity Events page by February 9.
The 2019 APS CUWiPs will be hosted January 18–20, 2019 at the following sites:
Also, if your institution is interested in hosting an APS CUWiP in 2020, please visit the Application to Host a Conference page and submit an Expression of Interest by September 1, 2018.
The APS CSWP has just completed a review of their best practices documents concerning the recruitment and retention of women in physics. The Committee has updated the recommendations to reflect current practice and re-framed them as "effective practices." You can visit the Effective Practices pages for a full list.
