Why and How Science, Math and Engineering Departments must be involved in Campus and National Educational Transformation

March 15
3:30-4:30pm
SI 4127

Special Meeting!  Different day and time!
Noah Finkelstein, Professor, Department of Physics, CU Boulder
Summary: currently, unprecedented national attention is being paid to the outcomes of and needs for Discipline-Based Education Research.  After framing the national scale scene of physics education, and how physics education research (PER) is positioned to contribute to the national dialog, Finkelstein will review the growth of the program at CU Boulder, and particularly his own research that examines several of the critical scales of focus in physics education.  This work develops a new theoretical line of inquiry in PER through experimental work on student reasoning in physics at the individual, the course, and the departmental scales. Finkelstein will present samples of these scales spanning from course to institutional transformation and the role and promise for CU Boulder’s new Center for STEM Learning.
