ALPhA's Laboratory Immersions Program -- Plunging into New Experiments
  Location: SS 105
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.2
  Time: 1:45 PM -2:15 PM
  Author: Lowell McCann, University of Wisconsin - River Falls
  Co-Author(s): None
  Abstract: In this talk, I will report on the first two years of the Advanced Laboratory Physics Association's (ALPhA) Laboratory Immersion program. ALPhA initiated this program to help faculty and teaching staff learn new instructional-physics experiments. Each Laboratory Immersion is two to three days in length, with the entire time devoted to learning one experiment well enough to teach it confidently. I will discuss the first round of Immersions, which took place during summer 2010, and the impact these offerings have had on the participants based on the results of our preliminary evaluation. The slate of upcoming Immersions for summer 2011 will also be presented.
