Cost: Earlybird Fee is $195 until April 15, after this date the fee is $225 for the non-credit workshop attendance. There is an optional variable 1-3 graduate credits available at $90 per credit. You will be able to select this option when you register.

Participants will be introduced to strategies for each component of the introductory course such as Interactive Lecture Demonstration (ILDs), RealTime Physics (RTP) labs, Collaborative Problem-Solving Tutorials, Workshop Physics (WP), Physics with Video Analysis (PVA), and related online video analysis exercises. The course will also include the use of video analysis to identify analytic functions describing real data. Among other recent developments are 1) new 3rd ed. RTP E & M labs using video analysis, 2) ILDs using clickers, and 3) online homework using Interactive Video Vignettes (IVVs). 4) distance learning and in class labs using the self-contained, wireless IOLab (or other wireless data acquisition devices). Topics will be chosen from both semesters of introductory physics. Research on the effectiveness of these strategies will also be discussed.
