Tandem Conferences

Join Your TYC Colleagues for a Meeting-Within-A-Meeting!

This one-day event brings together faculty teaching physics, astronomy, and physical science at two-year colleges to share ideas, learn from each other, and build community. We envision a productive day of activities to help all of us with new skills, ideas to enhance student success, and advancements in knowledge and tools. The Tandem 2023 is sponsored by OPTYCs (NSF-DUE-2212807).

AAPT National Summer Meeting


Call for Proposals

You are invited to share your experience, insight, and tools with other TYC faculty! There is specific interest in PER- and DEI-based curricular approaches, but all topics will be considered. 

Types of presentations:

  • Talks: Are you doing something new, different, crazy in your class and want to share with your colleagues? Consider presenting a 10-12 minute talk to showcase ingenuity, insight, or inspiration.

  • Workshops: If there is a tool, skill, technique, or activity that you wish to help your colleagues develop, consider facilitating a workshop. These should be 1 hour and 45 minutes long, and should be interactive in some way.
  • Posters: If there is information, updates, or process you wish to share, consider presenting a poster. While your poster may involve an interactive component, it is not a requirement. Updates on research projects, specific tasks that are beneficial for your students, and insights into the scholarship of teaching and learning are examples of poster topics.

Proposals will be accepted until Feb 28, 2023.

Notification for accepted abstracts will begin mid-March.

I want to submit a proposal!
