American Journal of Physics
written by Priscilla W. Laws
Early in his career Robert Millikan experimented with a laboratory-based method of teaching introductory physics that bears close resemblance to Workshop Physics. In this talk, key elements of Workshop Physics are summarized. Some Workshop Physics activities are described which involve apparati that are used both for rapid observations of conceptual aspects of physical phenomena and for equation verification experiments. Challenges are discussed that must be faced if recently developed activity-based approaches to teaching based on the outcomes of physics education research are to provide a foundation for a major paradigm shift in physics teaching.
