Integrating OSP Materials into the College Ready Project
Mathematics and Physics Partnership Event

in Fayetteville AR
Content and Resource Development Workshop
Building on the success of the Open Source Physics (OSP) workshop sessions held in 2012 and 2013, Drs. Wolfgang Christian and Mario Belloni from Davidson College will be facilitating a College Ready workshop on the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville campus. This workshop will provide physics and physical science teachers from College Ready core partner schools the opportunity to expand their instructional and technical capacity while learning how to incorporate existing OSP and Physlet-based curricular materials into their classroom lesson plans and activities. While a portion of the workshop will be allocated to content knowledge and learning how to utilize existing materials already available on the OSP Collection on ComPADRE, the majority of the workshop will consist of teachers collecting, organizing, and developing curricular materials that they will use in their classrooms and distribute to College Ready partners. Examples of likely outcomes from the workshop are: lesson plans, teacher tutorials, simulation documentation, student worksheets, and Tracker video analysis exercises. It is not necessary that the workshop participants are familiar with OSP materials, just that they have an interest in customizing interactive exercises for the classroom and laboratory.
