Webinar: Teaching Physics Modules

Dec 02, 2014

This webinar will introduce the participants to a series of modules that they can use in their physics teacher preparation programs as supplements to the existing physics teaching methods courses, as an independent study course (the material will be enough for 3 credits) or as resources for the students to use without attached coursework. They can also be used in professional development programs and in PER courses for doctoral students.
