Listservs, or email lists, are forums for communities centered around topics, disciplines, or professions, where the group communicates through email. When you are subscribed to a listerv, you can post messages to a group of people by sending one email to the list. In turn you will also receive emails that are posted to the list by other members. Listservs are one way to enter into professional conversations with colleagues. They're also a good job-hunting tool, as open positions in a particular field are often posted to listservs.

Here is a sampling of listservs for science teachers:

  • AAPT email lists: including physics in high school, physics in pre-high school, teacher preparation, and science for the public.
  • Middle School Science
  • HILITES: Listserv for "classroom-based collaborative learning projects."
  • EDTECH: Listserv for folks interested in educational technology
