Development of Active Learning Tools for a Course on Physics and Music
  Location: SS 104
  Date: Monday, Aug.1
  Time: 2:20 PM -2:30 PM
  Author: Heather Whitney, Wheaton College
  Co-Author(s): None
  Abstract: The physics education research literature provides a wealth of information on active-learning procedures, such as interactive lecture demonstrations (ILDs), peer instruction facilitated with clickers, or tutorial systems. However, much of this material has been focused on their use in courses that cover the canon of topics, such as introductory physics courses designed for science majors or conceptual physics courses. Courses that investigate the connections between physics and music are common in physics department course offerings for general education purposes, and they provide an important opportunity to instruct students who may not otherwise take a course in the field. A suite of these tools has been developed for a course on physics and music. Discussion will include clicker ILDs, clicker questions, and lab-based activities, all designed to enhance the learning of students in topics such as motion, oscillations and waves, and sound.
