Improving engineering physics teaching: learning from physics education research
2000 (English)In: Physics Teaching in Engineering Education (PTEE 2000), 2000Conference paper (Refereed)
Students come to our courses with a personal theory of physics. Most students do not change theirpersonal theories during a traditionally taught physics course. In this paper I will give some reasons forthis and also highlight some successful active-engagement curricula who help students to modify theirpersonal theories of physics and thus help them acquiring a good functional understanding of physics.
