Theme: How Physics Teaching Has Changed Since 1950: 66 years after the landmark AAPT National Meeting at Wesleyan University

In 1950, the first AAPT National Meeting was held at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT. Travel down Rt. 66 and meet us on October 21-23, 2016 for the Regional meeting of the New England, New York and New Jersey Sections of AAPT.

We will look at how we taught Physics, how we teach Physics now, and where we are headed in the future. We invite you to contribute talks, workshops and postersrelated to secondary- and college-level Physics pedagogy:
The History of Physics Education
  • Teaching Methods: Studio, Flipping, Team-based Learning, Guided and Open Inquiry, Problem-based Learning, Project-based Learning, Modeling Physics, Blended/Online courses, the new AP Physics, etc. How does conceptual understanding inform mathematical rigor? 
  • Experiments in Progress: What new approaches are you trying in your classes? What are your preliminary results? 
  • Assessment: How do we know our teaching is effective? What are the best assessment tools? Does it all fit with NGSS? 
Please submit your abstracts on-line at:
