Flipping the Classroom in Physics

Speaker: David Young & Shane Stadler; Louisiana State University

When:11/14/2018 12:00:00 PM ET

Event Details

Description:

Are you already Flipping the Classroom in your introductory physics course? If not, are you interested in learning more? Join Wiley authors Dave Young and Shane Stadler to learn how Flipping the classroom, or “inverted teaching”, allows class time to be spent engaging students with active learning techniques, as opposed to traditional lecturing. Much of the content delivery is now moved outside of the classroom, for example, through pre-lecture videos, readings, and exercises. Class time is then used to engage students with active learning techniques, such as peer instruction, group discussion, demonstrations, group problems, and problem-based learning. Walk away from this webinar with strategies and best practices for flipping your introductory physics course. Whether you are teaching a classroom of 30 students or an auditorium of 300, flipping your classroom can increase your student’s engagement, improve their learning, and make your class more fun!

David Young received his Ph.D. in experimental condensed matter physics from Florida State University in 1998. He then held a post-doc position in the Department of Chemistry and the Princeton Materials Institute at Princeton University before joining the faculty in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Louisiana State University in 2000. His research focuses on the synthesis and characterization of high-quality single crystals of novel electronic and magnetic materials. The goal of his research group is to understand the physics of electrons in materials under extreme conditions, i.e., at temperatures close to absolute zero, in high magnetic fields, and under high pressure. He is the coauthor of over 200 research publications that have appeared in peer-reviewed journals, such as Physical Review B, Physical Review Letters, and Nature.

Shane Stadler earned a Ph.D. in experimental condensed matter physics from Tulane University in 1998. Afterwards, he accepted a National Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship with the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC, where he conducted research on artificially structured magnetic materials. Three years later, he joined the faculty in the Department of Physics at Southern Illinois University (the home institution of John Cutnell and Ken Johnson, the original authors of this textbook), before joining the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Louisiana State University in 2008. His research group studies novel magnetic materials for applications in the areas of spintronics and magnetic cooling.

Teaching with Simulation Based Inference to Improve Statistical Thinking

Speaker: Nathan Tintle; Dordt College

When:11/19/2018 3:00 PM ET

Event Details

Description:

The statistics education community is increasingly focusing on the use of simulation-based methods, including bootstrapping and permutation tests, to illustrate core concepts of statistical inference within the context of the overall research process. This new focus presents an opportunity to address documented shortcomings in introductory and intermediate level statistics courses (e.g., seeing the big picture; improving statistical thinking over mere knowledge of procedures, critical reading of research studies). Nathan Tintle will discuss (1) the motivation and rationale behind the simulation-based approach, (2) share some concrete examples of how the approach works and can be integrated into existing courses, (3) present research evidence of its effectiveness at impacting students conceptual understanding and attitudes post-course and in the months following the courses completion and, (4) share a wealth of instructional resources available to support instructors trying out and using these approaches.

About the Speaker:

Nathan L. Tintle is Associate Professor of Statistics at Dordt College. He has led efforts to develop and institutionalize randomization-based curricula at two institutions (Hope College 2005–2011; Dordt 2011–present), and currently leads the curriculum development project.
