Physics

Introduction to Active Learning in STEM

During this one-week introduction to the principles of active learning in STEM, we’ll introduce several strategies such as facilitating student discourse, modeling, multiple representations in problem solving, and curriculum design.

NGSS and Phenomena-Based Learning

In this workshop, participants will learn how to use phenomena to engage students in Next Generation Science Standards, which integrate science practices, crosscutting concepts, and disciplinary core ideas.

Data Analysis and Linearization in Physics

Learn how to use data collection and linearization methods to guide students to physics principles and equations.

Computational Thinking & Coding in Physics

In this workshop you’ll learn how to use computational thinking in your classroom and get an introduction to the powerful, new Pyret language, a browser-based, state-of-the-art teaching vehicle.

Exploring Physics: Strategies for Teaching Mechanics

In this workshop you will learn how to engage your students actively in learning Physics, specifically, the physics of motion, forces (Newton’s Laws), and energy.
