Research in education has converged on a number of effective strategies for engaging students and promoting learning. Leveraging these tools effectively is challenging because it requires a major overhaul of our existing courses and instructional strategies. Professor Anne McNeil will talk about efforts underway at U-M toward building better STEM courses by incorporating these new learning strategies, focusing on her own experiences while piloting a new chemistry laboratory course.
All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from Weiser Hall (formerly the Dennison Building) in the U-M Church Street parking structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services. For more information regarding the Saturday Morning Physics series click here or call 734.764.4437.
