The difficulties associated with integrating computation into undergraduate physics.
written by Ashleigh Leary, Paul W. Irving, and Marcos D. Caballero
From a department being resistant to change to students not buying into computational activities, the challenges that are faced with integrating computation into the undergraduate physics curriculum are varied. The Partnership for Integration of Computation into Undergraduate Physics (PICUP) aims to expand the role of computation in the undergraduate physics curriculum. The research presented in this paper is part of a larger project examining the role of the PICUP workshop in facilitating both the integration of computation into classrooms and developing a supportive community to support this integration. An important part of providing the necessary supports for integration is understanding and categorizing the problems members of this community of integrators face when integrating computation in their courses. Through individual and group interviews, we discuss the barriers to integration that new and experienced community members of PICUP have experienced in the past or perceive could exist in the future.
