Project-based learning for Honors College students
Calculus-based physics for Honors College is different from the regular classes because of the required immersive experience. Each student, or group of a maximum of three students, must pick up a project for the end-of-semester report and presentation. Since the campus closed before they completed their projects, we moved to a hybrid approach with some experiments carried out by the instructor and others based on simulations. To ensure equitable effort, the entire team had to coordinate both on writing the final report and on recording a VoiceThread video with their presentation for the entire class. All presentations were discussed and evaluated by the entire class during a zoom conference.
