About this Event
The Physics & Astronomy Colloquium Series presents Douglas N. Arion of Professor Emeritus of Physics and Astronomy, Donald Hedberg Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Entrepreneurship Carthage College, Wisconsin discussing “What J-TUPP/PHYS21 and PIPELINE/EPIC Can Do for Your Department and Your Programs" on Nov. 5.
Colloquia are Fridays at 4:10 p.m.
Abstract: Several major efforts have been conducted over the last few years to identify potential improvements and adaptations of physics education to optimize student outcomes for the 21st century and beyond. Compounded with the impact of COVID-19 and the pending demographic shifts of incoming undergraduate students, the need to adapt physics education to sustain and grow departments has made the outcomes of these projects even more important than even envisioned when they were started.
This talk will discuss how you can apply what PHYS21 and EPIC recommend, in ways that (a) support growth and sustainability of physics departments, (b) enhance the student experience and outcomes, (c) improve student learning and understanding of physics, and (d) provide new and important opportunities for faculty and research.
