'Putting the Fizz into Physics'

Leah Wallace, 

Department of Science, Limerick Institute of Technology

 

Wednesday 4th November at 11am

 In MC2005

 

This presentation describes some active learning initiatives used in the delivery of a first year physics module for science students taught at the Limerick Institute of Technology.  The active learning projects that have been developed over the last number of years are team projects and include a photographic assignment and a hand-on 'home-made' physics experiment and poster among others.  The rationale behind integrating these self-directed active learning projects into the syllabus is to enhance learner participation and engagement with physics both within and beyond the lecture hall. In addition to this, basic research skills, computer skills, team-work and communication skills are developed.
