Seminário de Ensino de Física

 

Palestrante: Noah Finkelstein (University of Colorado)

Palestra: "Educational Transformation at a Critical Time: why us and why now -- the promises of disciplinary engagement"

Sexta 11/11, 10:00, sala 201

Resumo:
Significant, perhaps unprecedented, attention is being paid to the needs for transformation within the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education at the undergraduate level.  This talk examines how higher education STEM disciplines, and physics departments in particular, are positioned to contribute to these discussions. I will review the growth of our own program in physics education research (PER) at CU-Boulder as an example. Our work develops a new theoretical line of inquiry in physics education research through experimental work at the individual, the course, and the departmental scales. I present samples of these scales reviewing:  how we can build on understanding of student reasoning to study and transform our introductory through upper division courses (E/M and advanced laboratories), studies of how our environments do and d o not support women in physics, and time permitting, an examination of what the data say about teaching physics through a massively open online course (MOOC).
