Suspicious Email Messages
Please be aware that incidents of AAPT members and others receiving bogus messages is increasing. Recently, the AAPT Executive Office was informed by several individuals that they received a bogus message from a current Board of Directors member. Several other members indicated that they received a message about receiving a copy of the attendee list for the 2020 AAPT Winter Meeting from a bogus marketing company with no relationship to AAPT. These messages were not sent by or on behalf of AAPT. If you received a copy of either message or any other suspicious message do not open it or click on links within. If the message looks like it originates from AAPT but does not have an aapt.org email address, then delete it immediately. However, if you have already opened the email and/or clicked on a link within a suspicious message consider taking the following actions as a precaution:
1. Flag/report message as spam in your email client
2. Change your email account password.
3. Run a malware and/or anti-virus scan on your computer.
4. Consider changing the passwords of your other online accounts, especially those connected to financial institutions.
5. Report the threat potential to your contacts and the IT department at your institution.
As always, please feel free to contact us at headquarters (email@example.com, 301.209.3333) if you have any questions.

Help Support National Meeting Attendees!
AAPT is committed to making sure that our national meetings are as accessible as possible to as many as possible. Our physics education community thrives when we can hear diverse voices and perspectives.
Did you know that AAPT offers assistance via small grants to individuals attending AAPT's summer and winter meeting who have childcare, dependent care, or elder care or who need assistance because of a disability? Did you also know that AAPT offers small travel grants for the summer and winter meetings to AAPT, NSHP, or NSBP members who need additional financial assistance including a few grants specifically to high school and two year college faculty who are from underrepresented groups and/or from institutions whose students are predominantly underrepresented?
Below are some examples of the impact that these grants have had:
"The grant allowed me to attend the meeting by helping to pay for a specialized caretaker ... and a babysitter."
"I was able to attend the meeting with my 3 month old child by bringing my spouse to help with childcare during the meeting."
"I was able to concentrate while attending the conference because I knew that my children were in good hands."
"My caretaker was able to transport me in a car and support me during my presentation while attending so that I didn't become too exhausted."
"I will be forever grateful for this opportunity to attend the AAPT national meeting."
"I was so excited to give my first invited talk at a large conference. Since my institution typically doesn't support travel, the AAPT travel grant made it possible for me to attend. Impact: 100%."
"If I had to cover all of the expenses myself I would have had to find a cheap hotel outside of town... With this grant I was able to stay at a hotel downtown making it much easier to attend evening events and also meet up with and network with other physics teachers."
"I was not in good financial position [and] the grant gave me [the] opportunity to participate for the first time."
Help AAPT continue to impact individuals and our field! Please donate to these funds to sustain these grants for future conferences! Read More

2020 PER Conference Blog - Call for Entries
The 2020 PERC Organizing Committee is working hard to prepare our community for the conference next year. The theme of the 2020 PERC is about the history, current, and future of physics education research. In other words, as the PER community continues to move forward, we need to take a pause and ask ourselves some critically important and yet easily forgotten questions, such as who we really are, what we really do, and why we do what we do. These questions are closely tied to the ultimate identities of ourselves. That's why we created this blog as an opportunity for us to share with each other the key features about ourselves (be they professional or personal) that we haven't yet got a chance to show through our published research. (You'll need to create a ComPADRE account to see the blog if you don't already have one.) If you are interested in contributing to the blog, please send an email to email@example.com.

Active Learning in Introductory Physics Courses: Research-Based Strategies that Improve Student Learning
Date and Place: July 12-14, 2020, Portland, Oregon
Designed for those who teach introductory physics at universities, colleges and high schools. Graduate credit will be available through the University of Oregon.*
Instructors: David Sokoloff, University of Oregon and Ronald Thornton, Tufts University
Participants will be introduced to research-validated, classroom-tested strategies for each component of the introductory course that have been demonstrated to improve learning. These include Interactive Lecture Demonstration (ILDs), RealTime Physics (RTP) labs, Collaborative Problem-Solving Tutorials, Workshop Physics (WP), Physics with Video Analysis (PVA), and related online video analysis exercises. The course will also include the use of video analysis to identify analytic functions describing real data. Among other more recent developments are (1) 3rd edition RTP E & M labs using video analysis, (2) ILDs using clickers, (3) online homework using Interactive Video Vignettes (IVVs), and (4) distance learning and in class labs using the self-contained, wireless IOLab (or other wireless data acquisition devices). Topics will be chosen from both semesters of introductory physics. Research on the effectiveness of these strategies will also be discussed.
The tools and software used in these active learning curricula are compatible with Macintosh and Windows OS, and with the popular interfaces and sensors. Participants will receive complimentary printed copies of the curricula (published by Wiley and Vernier, and also available for high school use as the ABP High School E-dition). The course fee is $225. (Early bird registration until May 15 is $195.)
