AAPT Summer Meeting 2024

Join us this week in Boston, MA for the AAPT Summer Meeting 2024 and PERC 2024, where a bunch of us will be presenting talks and posters.

First off, Ed will be presenting a poster titled Ungrading a modern physics course [PDF] on Sunday July 7 during session SUN-POS-G-601 at 5:30pm. Don’t miss it, this is probably the best-looking poster that has ever been made! UPDATE!! Ed’s poster got moved to Monday July 8 at 4pm (MON-POS-G-624, session Beyond Intro Posters II).

Then on Monday July 8, Anika will be presenting a talk titled Identifying barriers to STEM in underrepresented groups [PDF], which is based on her undergrad thesis research. She will be in session DK: PER: DEI, which is at 3pm.

On Tuesday July 9, we have both Emily and Steven presenting talks in parallel sessions. Emily will be presenting on her GTA prep work with a talk titled Lessons learned from a decade of GTA preparation [PDF], as the first talk in session GL: Graduate Teaching Assistant Training at 2pm. Also at 2pm but as the last talk of session GE: Science Communication and Informal Physics, we’ll have Steven doing the first presentation of his PhD research, Reflecting to learn in a physics multimedia communication course [PDF].

Finally, on the night of Wednesday July 10, both Steven [PDF] and Anika [PDF] will be presenting posters at PERC, in Poster Session 2 which goes from 8pm to 9:30pm. Since their posters have even-numbered codes, they will be in the second half of the poster session, at 8:50pm.

And if everything goes well, Steven will also have a PERC Proceedings paper, though we’ll make a separate announcement for that once it’s been officially accepted for publication.
