Tools for Departmental Self-Study and External Review

Attending the 2018 AAPT Winter Meeting? During the 2018 Winter AAPT meeting, a workshop will be held that highlights tools, resources, and strategies for improving the undergraduate physics experience. Within this meeting, SPS will launch the updated version of the Careers Toolbox! The workshop will take place on Saturday, January 6, from 8am - 12pm. Registration is required but workshop fee assistance is available. See workshop details for more information.

Specific workshop details are below: 

W02: Tools for Departmental Self-Study and External Review

Description: There is a growing call for revisiting the undergraduate physics experience to provide excellent preparation for a wide range of career trajectories. Several new resources, developed through federally-funded research projects, have been developed by AAPT, APS and AIP. This workshop will help departments of all sizes and types to develop strategies for reform aimed at incorporating the findings, results and best-practice suggestions in these resources, including Phys21: Preparing Physics Students for 21st Century Careers report (APS/AAPT) and The Career Pathways Project (AIP), with focus on using these resources as guides for program self-study and/or the external review process. Participants will be guided in developing a strategy for incorporating career development in their own programs and how these strategies might be used in developing long term goals for the department. IMPORTANT NOTE: Workshop fees will be partially offset with a stipend for participants who provide brief reports about how the strategic plans have been implemented in their departments/programs.

Cheers,

Brad R. Conrad
