NIUS Workshop on "Active Engagement: Lessons from education research"

Date: 17 March, 2017
Time: 11:00 - 13:00

Venue: NIUS Building Room - 204

Coordinator: Prof. Anwesh Mazumdar

By: Prof. Corinne Manogue & Prof. Tevian Dray, Two workshops in one! We will model and discuss a variety of active engagement strategies that can be used in any STEM classroom. You will be the students, as we present some simple and fun mathematics, namely how to use the quaternions to describe rotations in three dimensions. This content will probably be new to everyone, but has broad applications to computer graphics, robotics, and aeronautics. Along the way, we will point out to you the pedagogical strategies we are using, and briefly discuss how to implement them effectively in the classroom.

NIUS Workshop on "Activities for Introductory Quantum mechanics"

Date: 17 March, 2017
Time: 14:30 - 16:30

Venue: NIUS Building Room - 204

Coordinator: Prof. Anwesh Mazumdar

By: Prof. Corinne Manogue & Prof. Tevian Dray, Quantum mechanics is often considered to be too abstract for students to understand. We will share activities that make some of the mysteries of quantum mechanics concrete and accessible. This workshop is appropriate for both novices and experts in quantum mechanics.
