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:

  • 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. (Workshop proposals must be submitted by Feb. 28.)
  • 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. We are particularly interested in posters involving curricular approaches, new pedagogy, and alternate ways of doing labs. You are invited to also submit your poster abstract to the AAPT National Summer Meeting.

Poster abstracts will be accepted until April 14, 2023.

I want to submit an abstract!
