College Ready Resource Development Workshop
Building on the success of the Open Source Physics (OSP) workshop sessions held in 2012, Drs. Wolfgang Christian and Mario Belloni from Davidson College will be facilitating two workshops on the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville campus during the week of June 24-29. These workshops 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 each three-day workshop will consist of teachers collecting, organizing, and developing curricular materials that they will use in their classrooms and distributed to CR 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 an interest in customizing interactive exercises for the classroom and laboratory.
