American Association of Physics Teachers David Halliday and Robert Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Physics Teaching

Named for David Halliday and Robert Resnick, authors of a very successful college-level textbook in introductory physics, and funded since 2010 primarily by a generous endowment from John Wiley and Sons, the publisher of that textbook, the David Halliday and Robert Resnick Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Physics Teaching recognizes outstanding achievement in teaching undergraduate physics, which may include the use of innovative teaching methods.  The recipient, an AAPT member for whom undergraduate teaching is a primary responsibility, delivers an address at an AAPT Summer Meeting and receives a monetary award, an Award Certificate, a copy of the citation, and travel expenses to the meeting. Previous winners of the Oersted Medal or the Robert A. Millikan Medal are not eligible for this award.   Self-nomination is not appropriate for this award.
