AAPT.org - American Association of Physics Teachers

Outstanding Teaching Assistant Awards

Beginning in 2015 this award is offered as a benefit of membership. Physics Department Chairs who are current AAPT members may nominate two Outstanding Teaching Assistants at that institution to be recognized with an AAPT Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award. The award winner receives a complimentary one-year Student Membership in AAPT with electronic access to the American Journal of Physics and The Physics Teacher. The award includes a certificate, letter of recognition, and sample press release for your local media.  (Departments that want to recognize additional TAs can pay the Student Membership dues for each awardee.)


The annual deadline for nominations is June 30th.

For further information on this program, contact the AAPT Membership Department at membership@aapt.org.
