Resources and community for teaching physics for life sciences


Workshop: Creating, Sharing, and Improving Student-centered Activities for Life Science Students

January 12, 2019 from 1:00pm - 5:00pm Central Time
AAPT Meeting in Houston, TX

Come join a community of faculty committed to innovative teaching within introductory college physics courses for life science students. Bring an instructional task that you are proud of to share with other highly engaged educators. Solicit other educators’ reactions to your classroom or lab activities. Hear about innovative things that other highly engaged educators are doing. In this workshop, educators will discuss the logic behind why they organize their physics activities in the ways that they do. Learn how to use the Living Physics Portal ( to make your innovations accessible to other educators. By the end of the workshop, you will be prepared to contribute your own activities to the Portal for other educators to use and adapt.
