Andrew Crouse presented an invited talk entitled, “111 Degrees Apart: Teaching Physics in Fiji and Venezuela,” at the American Association of Physics Teachers Conference in Ann Arbor, MI, on July 27th.
An overview of physics teaching in both Fiji and Venezuela was presented from the perspective of an outsider looking in. Examples were gleaned from Crouse’s experience teaching for two years in each location. Some unique challenges facing Peace Corps Volunteers teaching physics, as well as, physics teachers in international schools were also discussed.
