Evaluation of a Tertiary Studio Physics Implementation in Abu Dhabi 

written by H. Vincent Kuo, Patrick B. Kohl , Jan Beks, Kofi Agyeman, and Curtis C. Bradley

As part of an international collaboration on educational dissemination, the Colorado School of Mines Physics Department is involved in the evaluation of a tertiary implementation of the Studio Physics environment at the Petroleum Institute in Abu Dhabi, UAE. This paper will describe the preliminary results on student performance based on traditional means of summative assessment, the Force Concept Inventory, a Studio Learning Environment Survey, and semi-structured interview data with eight physics faculty and staff and eighteen current and former students regarding their opinions on introductory physics and the Studio environment and methodology. The discussion will also involve comparisons of different classroom cultures, context idiosyncrasies and their potential impact on the reform effort.
