IMPORTANT NOTICE: If at all possible please make your decision to attend the River Falls workshop and fill out an application by April 6.  We will begin sending out formal acceptance notices soon after this date.  However, we will continue to accept applications until all of the spots available at the workshop have been filled. So, if you’re interested, and the date is past April 6, by all means please submit your application.  We will be conducting these summer Faculty Development Workshops every summer for at least the next 4 years. Thus, in the event the workshop should fill up, you will be considered for next year.

If you have any questions, or would like more information, please contact the Workshop Coordinators


Who should apply: All physics faculty, especially those who have not yet attempted to integrate computation into their undergraduate physics courses.

In this workshop participants, with the assistance of the workshop coordinators,  will develop a viable, personalized plan for integrating computation into their undergraduate physics course(s) to be implemented in the upcoming academic term.

  • Local expenses will be covered for all accepted participants.
  • A limited number of travel scholarships may be available to applicants whose home institutions are unable to provide supportive travel funding. The scholarships will provide partial or full reimbursement of travel costs to and from the workshops.

There is room in the workshop for 24 faculty participants, and it is expected that there will be more applicant interest than available positions; thus, interested applicants are encouraged to apply at their earliest convenience. Applicants will be notified in the Spring of 2016 if they have been accepted to participate. To apply, follow the link below.
