Interactive Lecture Demonstrations: Active Learning in Lecture
  Location: HC 3027
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.2
  Time: 8:30 AM -9:00 AM
  Author: David Sokoloff, Department of Physics
  Co-Author(s): Ronald K. Thornton
  Abstract: The results of physics education research and the availability of microcomputer-based tools have led to the development of the activity-based Physics Suite.1 Most of the Suite materials are designed for hands-on learning, for example student-oriented laboratory curricula such as RealTime Physics. One reason for the success of these materials is that they encourage students to take an active part in their learning. This interactive session will demonstrate “through active audience participation” Suite materials designed to promote active learning in lecture and Interactive Lecture Demonstrations (ILDs).2 The demonstrations will be drawn from second semester topics.
