  Description Many PER-based materials are designed for institutions that serve largely traditional student populations in fairly rigid learning environments. The introductory physics course at the urban institution is often small, with students remaining in a single room for all components of the course (lecture, laboratory, problem-solving, etc.). Chicago State University and the City Colleges of Chicago are capitalizing on these features to create a learning environment where students continuously move back and forth between course components. To aid in the implementation of this environment, CSU is creating an Interactive Physics Workbook that provides a clear structure for the course. The workbook contains lecture notes, discussion questions, TIPERS, problem-solving tasks, and laboratories that are often broken up. The material in this workbook comes from a diverse group of collaborators. In this workshop, participants will be placed in this learning environment and will get a sense of how the various components cohere into one unit. *The workbook is a result of collaborations between New Mexico State University, California State University - Fullerton, Buffalo State University, and The Ohio State University. **Supported by the NSF Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement Program (CCLI grants 0632563, 0618128, 410068)
