Spr '14 MSTE Friday Lunch Series - Mats Selen

Posted on: 4/23/2014 12:22 PM
Topics: [ Announcements ] [ Education ] [ Friday Lunch ] [ Physics ] [ Technology ]

Title: Interactive Online Laboratories

Description: They have built an inexpensive battery powered wireless laboratory system that allows students to do hands-on physics activities outside the classroom, guided by their own computer. The system, called IOLab, combines flexible software with a wireless data acquisition platform containing an array of sensors to sample and display real-time measurements of position, velocity, acceleration, force, rotation rate, orientation, magnetic fields, voltages, light intensity, sound intensity, pressure, and temperature. In this talk I will demonstrate the IOLab system and will show results from two clinical studies done at the University of Illinois to assess the learning outcomes of students performing Interactive Online Laboratories in an independent setting.

Date & Time: Friday, April 25, 2014 from noon-1pm


Location: Classroom 201, 505 E Green St., Champaign, IL


Cost: Free and open to the public


Don’t forget to RSVP so that we have enough pizza!

Spr '14 MSTE Friday Lunch Series - Jose Mestre

Posted on: 4/9/2014 2:59 PM
Topics: [ Announcements ] [ Friday Lunch ] [ Outreach ] [ Physics ]

Title: Cognitive research in STEM: What it tells us about student perception and performance, and how it can inform teaching


Description: We will learn about several studies conducted in his lab that shed light on what students attend to when performing cognitive tasks in physics. The studies, drawing from a variety of methodologies from the learning sciences, aim to understand the obstacles to, and factors facilitating, competent performance. The findings from some of the studies debunk biases/hunches that many physics professors have about what students do, and the audience will very likely find several of the findings surprising. Pedagogical implications of the findings will be discussed.

When: Friday, April 11, 2014 from noon-1pm

Where: Classroom 201, 505 E Green St., Champaign, IL
