Subject: Teaching Physics and Self-Efficacy to Pre-Service Teachers; The Evolution of Physics 101 at UST

Over the last 4 years the Physics 101 (Physics for Elementary Teachers) course at the University of St. Thomas has undergone a major shift in dynamic, structure and course goals. Here we will discuss those changes and the integration of Writing Across the Curriculum - Writing to Learn and Unit Projects to enhance student learning and self efficacy. Gains in physics knowledge and self-efficacy will be discussed as well as areas of improvement and future plans.

The weekly calendar is also available via subscription to the physics-announce mailing list, and by RSS feed.
