Abstract

A physics education is the gateway to competence in technology, chemistry, medicine, engineering, environmental science, and even business. However, the dominant public perception is that physics is tedious, abstract, and fundamentally irrelevant. Many university students view physics as difficult or unpleasant and so choose not to pursue degrees in it. Taking into consideration the available works in physics education research, I offer here some thoughts on teaching upper-level physics subjects for physics majors in our rapidly changing world.
