A student in the class of 2012 writes, "Peter Dourmashkin is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Physics and Associate Director of the Experimental Study Group at MIT. He has been actively involved in undergraduate education at MIT since 1984, and has presented results of the TEAL Project at the annual meetings of the American Association of Physics Teachers, and the American Physical Society. Previous to his involvement with the TEAL Project, Dr. Dourmashkin worked with Prof. John King of the MIT Physics Department to develop two experimental physics courses, 8.01X and 8.02X for first-year students. He has also developed a Physics Teaching Workshop and follow-up Seminar, Physics Teaching, which is a required course for all new graduate teaching assistants in the Physics Department.
"He is simply the best physics teacher on the planet."
