FREE AIP Beginning Physics Teachers' In-Service

FREE Beginning Physics Teachers' In-Service

Saturday 19th March @ VSSEC
9:30am - 12:30pm
and
Monday 11th April @ Kew High School

The Victorian AIP Education Committee is keen to assist new physics teachers whether they be:
a)        First Year Outs,
b)        Teachers taking Year 12 for the first time,
c)        Teachers returning to Physics teaching after many years’ absence, or
d)        Teachers who have been asked by their school to take physics.  

To support these teachers it is offering two programs:

An in-service program of a half-day in-service on Saturday morning, 19th March and a full day in-service on Monday 11th April.  The two events are free and travel coverage is available for country participants.  The two events will be complementary, so people can come to both.  The Saturday morning event will be held at the Victorian Space Science Education Centre at Strathmore and the Monday event will be held at Kew High School.  To register please email the AIP at danok@bigpond.com with subject “Registration: New Physics Teachers” and include in the email, not only your contact details, but your reason for applying and which events you are applying for.  

A mentor scheme.  Several retired physics teachers have offered their services to support new teachers.  The AIP Education Committee will give them a stipend to meet with the teacher once during Terms 2, 3 and 4 and to be available for phone and email contact.  Teachers wishing to participate in this scheme should send an expression of interest containing their contact details and a statement of why they want to be involved in the scheme.  The expression of interest should be accompanied by a letter of support from the Science Coordinator or the School Principal.  The documents should be posted to the AIP mentor Scheme, PO Box 304, Glen Waverley, VIC 3150 or emailed to danok@bigpond.com as an attachment.
