STEM Education Research Seminar (SERS): Why I Do Physics Education Research (Event Flyer)

Presented by: Vince Coletta, Ph.D.
Physics Deparment, Loyola Marymount University
ECHO Recording of Presentation

In this seminar I will share experiences that have motivated my research in physics education. I will describe the initial research question that arose out of my teaching and how the answer to that question led to other intriguing questions that continue to motivate me today. Can we develop a students’ ability to reason? Can we change a student’s understanding of what it means to learn? In what way does gender affect a student’s work?

This talk is part of the STEM Education Research Seminar series. The goal of the series is to provide a forum for faculty working on research related to STEM education to present and discuss their work. All interested welcome.

The STEM Education Research Seminar is organized by Anna Bargagliotti, Ph.D., Mathematics, and Jeff Phillips, Ph.D., Physics. Please contact them directly or via teachers@lmu.edu for details.

This is a brown-bag seminar - bring your own lunch (microwave available). Water, coffee and cookies provided by CTE.
