W05: Research-Based Curricula and Computer Supported Tools
|Saturday, Jul 17, 2010 9:00AM - 4:15PM W05: Research-Based Curricula and Computer Supported Tools ($50.00)|
|Title||W05: Research-Based Curricula and Computer Supported Tools|
|Date and Time||Jul 17 2010 9:00AM|
|iMIS Description||Workshop Leader: David Sokoloff This hands-on workshop is designed for those who want to introduce active learning and computer tools into their introductory courses. We will introduce new approaches to teaching based on physics education research (PER) in lectures, labs, and recitations as well as studio and workshop environments. Among the approaches presented will be Interactive Lecture Demonstration (ILDs), Web-Based ILDs, RealTime Physics Labs, Activity Based Tutorials, Collaborative Problem-Solving Tutorials, Live Photo Assignments and Workshop Physics, as well as analytic modeling and video analysis tools. The computer tools used are available for both Macintosh and Windows computers. Results of studies on the effectiveness of these teaching strategies will also be presented. Current versions of the curricula, along with the book Teaching Physics with the Physics Suite by E.F. Redish will be distributed. Partially supported by the National Science Foundation. |
You will need to take Portland's Trimet Metropolitan Area Express (MAX), which is 25 minutes from the Hilton and will drop you off directly behind Vernier Software Technology.
Workshop will be held at Vernier Software & Technology.

W20: Computer Modeling & The Physics Classroom Web Resources
|8:00AM - 5:00PM W20: Computer Modeling & The Physics Classroom Web Resources ($55.00)|
|Title||W20: Computer Modeling & The Physics Classroom Web Resources|
|Date and Time||Jul 18 2010 8:00AM|
|iMIS Description||Workshop Leader: Wolfgang Christian Creating good and thorough web resources that allow teachers to easily incorporate computer-based modeling into their curriculum requires the right tools. The ComPADRE National Science Digital Library (NSDL) provides curriculum material and tools that are easy to use, open, extensible, and free to solve this integration problem. This workshop will show participants how to combine curricular material in The Physics Classroom with simulations in the Open Source Physics Collection to improve the understanding of physics concepts and to make difficult topics more accessible to students. Participants will create personal resource collections that integrate these diverse ComPADRE materials for their students. Afternoon technical and non-technical breakout sessions will allow participants to develop their own simulations and learning resources. |
This workshop will benefit anyone teaching introductory physics. Information can be obtained from < http://www.compadre.org/osp/> and
Partial funding for this work was obtained through NSF grants DUE-0442581 & DUE-0840768.
Workshop will be held at Portland State University.
