Next Generation Modeling Courses  (NGMC) are graduate-level online/hybrid-online courses for physics and physical science teachers (grades 6-12) offer through the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. These professional development courses have four main goals: 

  • Strengthen subject-matter content knowledge in physics
  • Deepen understanding of research-based methods of science teaching; common student learning difficulties; the Next Generation Science Standards; and teaching/learning theories in physics education
  • Engage teachers in the national conversation about the goals and methods of science teaching through participation in state and national science teaching organizations, local special-interest groups, and action research 
  • Provide a pathway to Higher Learning Commission (HLC) compliance for teachers in the Cooperative Academic Partnership Program (CAPP) 

The first two courses offered in this course suite are:

   Waves and Applications for Teachers, 2 cr. (Spring 2018)   
   Modern Physics for Teachers, 2 cr. (Fall 2018)
