  Description This hands-on workshop is designed for those who want to introduce active learning and computer tools into their introductory courses. We will introduce new approaches to teaching based on physics education research (PER) in lectures, labs, and recitations as well as studio and workshop environments. Among the approaches presented will be Interactive Lecture Demonstration (ILDs), Web-Based ILDs, RealTime Physics Labs, Activity Based Tutorials, Collaborative Problem-Solving Tutorials, Live Photo Assignments and Workshop Physics, as well as analytic modeling and video analysis tools. The computer tools used are available for both Macintosh and Windows computers. Results of studies on the effectiveness of these teaching strategies will also be presented. Current versions of the curricula, along with the book "Teaching Physics with the Physics Suite" by E.F. Redish will be distributed. Partially supported by the National Science Foundation. Lunch is included in the price of this workshop.
