Fall 2013 Newsletter

Wed, 2014-01-01

As the fall 2013 semester [third semester of our project] comes to an end, we are extremely excited to announce the milestones that have since been achieved. The Learning Assistant Program, which was implemented as the cornerstone of this project, has achieved great traction within the Physics Department at ASU. This semester, 10 LAs have been actively working with Dr. Gary Adams in his PHY 121 class to provide a new learning environment for the students. Our TIR (Teacher in Residence), Kelli Gamez-Warble taught her first semester of PHY 118: Explorations in Science Teaching. This class provides students with the opportunity to learn how to apply their physics knowledge to others in a classroom setting, one of the major problems in all areas of science education. There have been many new additions that have and will continue to benefit the project. Click on the PDF attachment to read the rest of the newsletter.
