The Oregon Chapter of the American Association of Physics Teachers
WHO WE ARE
Keeping Physics Fun!
The Oregon Chapter of the American Association of Physics Teachers (ORAAPT) is a community of physics educators from around the state. We are affiliated with the national organization American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT). We bring educators together to share best practices in teaching, host workshops, share demonstrations, and preview the latest in laboratory equipment. What makes us unique is a passion for keeping physics fun and engaging for all students.
Past, Present and Future Meetings of the Oregon American Association of Physics Teachers Meetings take place every 2nd Saturday of March and 3rd Saturday of October
TEACHING IN THE TIME OF COVID-19
We have become experts on distance learning and some have had the extra challenge of simultaneous in-person and remote teaching. As we pass the half-way point of the pandemic, there are valuable lessons about equity and access to learning that we can take away. Feel free to visit our Resources page and if you have anything you would like to add, email us HERE or reply to our latest blog post.
INVOLVEMENT IN AAPT
The Winter 2021 meeting of AAPT was completely virtual. We were looking forward to hosting the meeting in Portland but alas, that will be postponed. Our current section rep is Evan Thatcher. We have a few unfilled rep positions that we will be looking to fill at our Spring Meeting.
