The Energy Project's Teaching Seminar is available for teachers who have completed one or more of the summer courses. The Energy Project is pleased to offer seventeen Teaching Seminar evenings over the course of the 2012-2013 school year. Teachers are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible in order to help foster our professional development community.

This course will provide for the continuing development and application of ideas about energy instruction and formative assessment. Some time will be spent viewing and analyzing classroom video in order to practice informal assessment of student thinking.

Each evening session will be held on Tuesdays, from 5:30 - 8:00 pm, usually in Otto Miller Hall at Seattle Pacific University (unless otherwise noted). Sessions will be held on the following evenings:

October 2
October 16
October 30

January 15
January 29
February 12

March 12

April 9

Stipends will be available for each evening attended ($50 per session). Credits and clock hours will also be available: up to four credits (one credit per four sessions attended; no partial credits) or forty clock hours (five clock hours per two sessions attended; clock hours not available in increments of less than five), awarded at the end of the year. See the syllabus (under Course Documents) for more information.

If you are interested in participating in this year's AYPD, please contact the Energy Project at PhysicsEnergyProject@SPU.edu.
