Lecture: Highlight | March 13 | 5:30-6:30 p.m. | International House, Chevron Auditorium
When we think of the task of teachers as facilitating learning rather than as delivering information content it leads to a profound shift in how we teach and what we stress in the process.
I will talk about the ideas and research base underlying the "Framework for k-12 Science Education" and the vision for "three-dimensional learning" as defined by that document. Over 30 states, including California, are now attempting to implement this vision with their new science standards. I will also discuss how physics education research at the college level argues for a continuation of similar principles and shifts in emphasis for teaching physics (and other sciences) at the college level.
