Alberta Physics

Enhancing Physics Education and Teaching in Alberta

We are the Alberta section of the American Association of Physics Teachers. Our aim is to provide effective professional development workshops and sessions for the high school Physics and Science 20 and 30 teachers of Alberta as well as at the post-secondary level.

We hold an all-day teachers' workshop in the late Fall and 2 to 3 free evening sessions each year. Our members are high school science teachers and university/college professors with a deep interest in physics and physics education.

We meet as a group for the PD sessions and the executive meet on an irregular basis. There is no membership fee, just come to our PD sessions. For more information please contact us at the email address below.
