Abstract Title: Participant Perspectives on Studio Physics Implementation in Abu Dhabi
Abstract: 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 presentation will describe the preliminary results of a Studio Learning Environment Survey (SLES), as well as semi-structured interview data with eight physics faculty and staff and seventeen 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 and their potential impact on the reform effort.
