POSTER.48 - Re-development of an upper-level electrodynamics course using evidence-based teaching methodologies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Electrodynamics is a fundamental subject in physics, but the combination of two features: students having to learn many key concepts, as well as to master the use of mathematical techniques in order to understand the applications, makes this course challenging both for the student and the instructor. We present a redesign of the learning environment in this challenging, upper-level Physics course using several evidence-based teaching methodologies such as constructive alignment, scaffolding of problem-solving, and active learning. Course outcomes indicate that these strategies enable deeper learning in all students. Instructors from all disciplines can adapt our methodologies into courses with multiple, high-level learning outcomes.
