PHY-390T: Principles of Active Learning in Physics Education
This course is an opportunity for students to obtain both a theoretical understanding and hands-on experience with research-based active-learning pedagogies as part of the instructional team for Physics 131. As part of this course, the student will attend all meetings of a P131 section. During the P131 class-time, students will be an active participant in the teaching process answering questions of students during the class-time activities. Moreover, students will watch and reflect upon the P131 instructor?s use of modern teaching techniques. Students will also meet weekly to discuss the ideas behind modern research-based instruction.
