Physics Professor Elected to AAPT Executive Board

01.3.2013

HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 3, 2013 – Dr. Aaron Titus, associate professor of physics, has been elected to the Executive Board of the American Association of Physics Teachers as the Four-year College Representative and will begin his three year term on Jan. 10.

He will assist the board in fulfilling its mission to improve the teaching of physics, increase understanding of how students learn physics, and increase the numbers and diversity of physics teachers and students. He will collaborate with other newly elected board members from universities such as California State Polytechnic University and Davidson College.

Titus is known for his work with students in undergraduate research and his implementation of technology in the classroom. He utilizes video analysis and computer simulations and teaches students to write programs in Python and Java to model physical phenomena.

He has been honored by the university and many organizations for his dedication to hands-on learning. In 2011, HPU presented him with the Meredith Clark Slane Distinguished Teaching-Service Award which recognizes excellence in teaching.

“I am honored and excited to join this board where I hope to bring together AAPT members to collaboratively develop and provide practical tools that teachers and departments need to build strong programs,” says Titus.

Titus came to HPU in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science in physics from Penn State and a Ph.D. in physics from North Carolina State University.
