Better teaching: Carl Wienman

Wieman is the physicist who developed the PHET website, pretty much as a sideline at the time, but went on to become a very prominent voice in science education.
He recently became Stanford’s only professor holding a joint appointment at the Department of Physics and the Graduate School of Education.
