Effect of Reformed Courses in Physics and Physical Science on Student Conceptual Understanding.
Falconer, Kathleen; Wyckoff, Susan; Joshua, Mangala; Sawada, Daiyo
This paper describes major changes undertaken in two undergraduate physics courses from traditional lecture method to an inquiry-based method that facilitates active student engagement and changes in the modeling approach to learning. Students' conceptual understanding of physics concepts were evaluated by quasi-experimental design, and the Reform Teaching Observation Protocol (RTOP) was used to evaluate instructors for reformed teaching practice.
