'Putting the Fizz into Physics'

Leah Wallace, 

Department of Science, Limerick Institute of Technology


Wednesday 4th November at 3pm

 In MC2003


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.
