A "Flipped" Approach to Large-Scale First-Year Physics Labs

TitleA "Flipped" Approach to Large-Scale First-Year Physics Labs
Duration1 Year
Project Summary

This project explores the practicality and pedagogy of doing the lab component of Physics 100 entirely at home. Volunteer students will perform experiments at home at the exact same time the lab takes place on campus, and participate in classroom and peer discussions using Blackboard Collaborate. The Physics 100 lab already has some experiments that students perform at home with everyday equipment. This project will explore what adjustments would be necessary to do the entire lab at home.
