PHYS 59500 - Instructional Design In Physical Science

Credit Hours: 1.00 to 3.00. PHYS 59500 builds on collaborative interactions among current Purdue Physics or Education students, K-12 science educators, Physics and Purdue College of Science faculty, and Physics Outreach. The goal for this course is to provide opportunities and mentorship for independent work that could include the design, piloting, and assessment of instructional materials, relevant to learning and teaching topics and concepts related to the physical sciences. With a “service learning” orientation, students enrolled in this course should expect to learn and build upon the fundamental principles related to the design and implementation of instructional materials in classroom or informal learning environments, and assessment of learning. Materials developed could contribute to the repertoire of practicing teachers and/or Physics Outreach. Typically offered Fall Spring.
