Resources for research-based teaching and assessment on PhysPort

Speaker: Dr Eleanor Sayre (Kansas State University)
Date: Monday 18 February 2019
Time: 15:00
Venue: Queens Buildings N/4.07

How do people learn, and how can we help them learn more? Decades of research in physics education have produced evidence-based curricula and assessments as well as fundamental knowledge about student learning and identity development. The sheer quantity of this information makes it difficult for faculty to make sense of effective practices in teaching and assessment. PhysPort is an online professional development portal for physics faculty which includes faculty-friendly information about research-based teaching and assessment. In this talk, I'll outline some of PhysPort's materials, research into student learning, and ongoing faculty development efforts to help faculty become more effective teachers and researchers.
