PTEC 2006 Conference.
I am writing to invite you to a conference scheduled for March 24 and 25, 2006 that will focus on the physics and physical science preparation of future teachers. This conference will bring together institutions that are working hard at the issue of teacher preparation and that have
made it a priority to train teachers more effectively.
Building Innovative Programs: Preparing Highly Qualified Physics and Physical Science K-12 Teachers
Where: University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR
When: March 24-25, 2006
Conference Website: www.ptec.org/conferences
Registration Fee: $100 (waived for Coalition members to join visit our website at www.PTEC.org.)
Registration includes all conference sessions and the post-conference workshop, lunch and dinner both
days, abundant snacks at breaks, local transportation from the Radisson Inn to the Conference,

limited to 100.
Here is a partial list of workshops: (offered in 90 minute sessions with three running concurrently)
Sessions are interactive and there is an emphasis on the elements of successful programs.
* Physics by Inquiry, Paula Heron (University of Washington)
* CASTLE, Camille Wainwright (Pacific University)
* Learning Assistants, Valerie Otero (University of Colorado at Boulder),Stamatis Vokos
(Seattle Pacific University), and Gay Stewart (University of Arkansas at Fayetteville)
* Assessment Strategies Based on NSES, Cody Sandifer (Towson University)
* Can Virtual Electrical Circuits Labs Successfully Replace Physically Wiring Circuits,
Noah Finkelstein (University of Colorado at Boulder)
* Pedagogical Content Knowledge, Eugenia Etkina (Rutgers University)
* NCATE Licensure Standards Developed by NSTA, Marcia Fetters (Western Michigan University)
* Reducing Teacher Isolation: Induction and Mentoring, Dale Freeland (Portage High School
and Teacher-in-Residence at Western Michigan University) and Julia Olsen (Teacher-in-Residence
at the University of Arizona)
There will be two plenary speakers: Michael Marder (Co-Director of UTeach, University of Texas at Austin)
and Joan Prival (Program Director, NSF Division of Undergraduate Education). There is also a contributed
poster session and, on March 26, a free post-conference workshop on the nationally-recognized curriculum
for helping educate elementary teachers: Physics for Elementary Teachers (PET) given by its primary
developer,Fred Goldberg (San Diego State University).
This conference is sponsored by the Physics Teacher Education Coalition (PTEC), a network of institutions
dedicated to the improvement of preservice education for physics and physical science teachers K-12. PTEC
grew out of PhysTEC, a collaborative project of the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT), the
American Institute of Physics (AIP), and the American Physical Society (APS).
Hope you can make it to this important meeting.
