Workshop: Activities From the Living Physics Portal at AAPT Winter Meeting 2021
January 15, 2021
from 1:00pm - 5:00pm Eastern Time
AAPT Virtual Winter Meeting 2021
Activities From the Living Physics Portal
Organizers: Adrian Madsen, Nancy Beverly, Nancy Donaldson, Mark Reeves
Date: Friday, January 15
Time: 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EST)
Abstract: Join other highly engaged physics instructors in exploring, re-thinking and adapting introductory physics activities and assignments for health science and life science students to emphasize interdisciplinary connections. Participants will be exposed to practical changes they can implement at their home institutions that put students’ experiences at the center of classroom interactions. Participants will join a growing network of physics instructors who share curricular materials and troubleshoot instructional challenges through the Living Physics Portal. Participants will use the Portal to share resources and collaborate with other physics educators. Instructors, lab managers, & community college faculty and those with varying degrees of familiarity with physics for life scientists or active learning are welcome! The goals of the workshop are to enable and excite participants to (a) make curricular or lab changes, (b) focus on students’ experiences and learning, and (c) make physics personally meaningful and coherent with students’ other STEM knowledge.
