The Paradigms Classroom

ANNOUNCEMENT: Workshop on the Status of the Upper-Division Physics Curriculum (5-7 June 2014)

Paradigms in Physics

Teaching is the art of leading students into a situation in which they can only escape by thinking.
Dr. C. T. Bassoppo-Moyo

The Paradigms in Physics team is embarking on a new project to put detailed information about the various activities that we have developed on the web to encourage adoption by faculty at other institutions. We have already described our program as a whole in two papers and a general website. We are currently experimenting with a wiki format so that users will be able to offer detailed feedback. We expect this site to be updated on a nearly daily basis. Check back often!

You may enter this website at six different levels: individual activities arranged by content, individual activities arranged by pedagogical strategy, sequences of activities that we have found work well together to achieve particular pedagogical goals, descriptions of our courses, descriptions of things we have learned about how students learn and descriptions of things we have learned about how departments and teachers change.
