Developing Educational Leaders among TAs in Physics (DELTA-P)
Seminar Calendar
Fall 2022

DELTA-P seminars will be held via Zoom link Thursdays from 5:30-6:30pm, emailed to you directly. Those who attend 8 out of 10 seminars will receive a Certificate of Training in Physics Education. If we hold fewer than 10 sessions, we will try to reasonably maintain the ratio for attendance. *Update: We will hold 9 sessions, so attending 7 will suffice for DELTA-P completion*. The seminar series is organized by Chaz Ruggieri.
