NFDS Commencement Conference

July 6-7, 2024

in tandem with the AAPT National Summer Meeting July 7-10, 2024, Boston, MA

There are three major goals of the commencement conference.

  1. To present participants of the New Faculty Development Series with another set of instructional strategies that can be used to teach introductory physics at two-year colleges.  
  2. To allow the participants to share with each other and the leaders what they have accomplished during the New Faculty Development Series.  Each participant will present to the group either through a poster or an oral presentation.
  3. To introduce participants to the larger community of physics teachers and the professional growth
     opportunities available at a National AAPT Meeting.  During the Two-Year College breakfast/gathering and Committee on Physics at Two-Year College’s semi-annual meeting, participants will be introduced to other Two-Year College instructors and friends.  We will also have sessions allowing participants to present at the national meeting the posters or oral presentations they prepared for the commencement conference.
