Departmental Colloquium


Moving Physics Education Research from the Laboratory to the Classroom

Prof. Randy Knight
Cal. State Polytechnic

Time
 
Wed. November 14, 2007     3:30 PM     Stirling A

Abstract
 
Twenty-five years of physics education research have produced truly remarkable insights into how students learn physics as well as the very nature of the learning process. But this new knowledge must be transformed into new teaching methods and new curricular materials if it is to have widespread and lasting benefit. This talk will provide a from-the-trenches view of both the challenges and the opportunities for moving physics education research from the "laboratory" to the classroom.
