The APEX project is comprised of several components, each with its own subset of goals relating to the overarching goal of transforming secondary physics education in Alabama. The goal of the Alabama Physics Education Center (APEC) for teacher training is 1) to increase the quantity of highly qualified in-service teachers and under-represented minority pre-service teachers; 2) to increase the depth and breadth of content knowledge, pedagogy, and instructional technology knowledge and skills; 3) create and promote the development of an undergraduate physics education program at AAMU and UA-T; 4) implement a cyberinfrastructure resource repository for sharing and disseminating best teaching practices and lessons learned; and 5) to distribute laboratory equipment to schools via Alabama Science in Motion. The goal of the Physics Teaching Research (PTR) component is the classroom action research that creates evidence-based best practices for the knowledge base which guides the teacher in curriculum decision making. The video addresses depth and breadth content knowledge, pedagogical skills, teacher-participant reactions to hands on activities, as well as the positive impact on their classroom instruction and active action research.For more information, Visit http://apex.aamu.edu
