Membership Benefits

Coalition members share innovative ideas, learn from national leaders in the field, and promote awareness of the importance of physics and physical science teacher education efforts. Specific benefits include:

Membership Requirements

Any college or university that is committed to becoming part of the solution to resolving the physics teacher shortage is welcome to apply, whether it is just beginning work in physics teacher preparation or is already engaged in preparing future physics teachers. There is no cost to join.

Please note that coalition membership is not currently available to high schools. PhysTEC strongly recommends high school teachers join the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT). This organization serves current physics teachers and those who develop curricula for high school physics courses.
