PICUP Spring Webinar Series: Our transition to virtual instruction: How are we doing so far?

Thursday, April 2 at 7 PM EDT / 6 PM CDT / 5 PM MDT / 4 PM PDT

This webinar will provide an opportunity for you to share your approach to conducting online courses-what may or may not be working, point others to effective resources you have discovered, or to just listen and possibly PICUP(!) some good ideas.

NOTE: The webinar will be recorded and posted on the PICUP site for viewing for those who are unable to attend the meeting on Thursday, April 2.

PICUP Webinar: Why Integrate Computation?

Tuesday, March 10th at 9 PM EDT / 8 PM CDT / 7 PM MDT / 6 PM PDT

It's been almost a decade since the AAPT formally recommended "that every physics and astronomy department  provide its majors and potential majors with appropriate instruction in computational physics." In this webinar we'll explore why young physicists need computational skills and why faculty need to integrate computation deeper into their undergraduate coursework. Join the PICUP for a panel discussion focused on the question "Why integrate computation?"

Have a question you'd like addressed? You can submit it early at https://forms.gle/AFwSzZDdZdLQu9zC9

NOTE: The webinar will be recorded and posted on the PICUP site for viewing for those who are unable to attend the meeting on Tuesday, March 10.

The Good, the Bad, and the Computational: A Discussion on Your Integration of Computation This Semester

How did you integrate computation into your courses this semester? What worked, what didn't, and why? Bring your experiences for a group discussion of the ups and downs of whatever you tried this semester so we can all learn from each others successes and failures.

December 2018 PICUP Holiday Meeting

We met and discussed the semester.

Early December PICUP Community Meeting (online via zoom.us)

In this meeting, Larry Engelhardt and Kelly Roos will discuss the editorial and review process for materials submitted to the PICUP collection. Join the Strutting Rooster and Lawrence of Florence for what should be a fun and educational meeting.

Unique and Interesting Undergraduate-accessible Computational Problems

One advantage of using computational/numerical methods is that problems that would otherwise be too difficult to solve (analytically) are now within reach for undergraduate students.  Given this broader array of problems that can potentially be solved -- what are some of the EXCITING problems that students would actually find INTERESTING to solve...without being too difficult for undergraduate students?

February 2018 Virtual Meeting

Todd Zimmerman will share some of his work to integrate computation in advanced lab and lead a discussion around using computation in labs.

January 2018 Virtual Meeting

Michelle Kuchera presented on pair programming.
