PFP has several goals:
- To create a community where grads and postdocs (and interested faculty) can discuss issues beyond research.
- To develop a generation of faculty who are aware of recent physics education research that provides insight into the shortcomings and possible improvements in introductory physics courses.
- To raise awareness of the needs and opportunities at different institutions, since most physics Ph.Ds will end up working outside the research intensive universities (ie, major research schools like CU).
- To provide training for physics graduates in useful career skills such as conducting a job search and writing grant proposals.
