***10.03.2020 CLASS WAS VIA SKYPE TODAY
At least until after Easter break, the University of Vienna has forbid us from meeting in person, due to the Corona virus. This does not mean, however, that your class is canceled. It means, rather, that we must have the class mutate into an online version of itself.
***If you have not received an e-mail from me, then I do not have your e-mail address. Be sure to share it with me when you find me on Skype (my Skype name is mike.hull.physics), or send me an e-mail at michael.malvern.hull@univie.ac.at.

Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Inquiry into Radioactivity (IiR) is a course created by Andy Johnson at Black Hills State University, where it has been taught since 2004. As discussed in Science Magazine, the overarching goal of the course is to help students with little background in science develop “a functional understanding of ionizing radiation”. We will delve into the course materials and assess what, if any, modifications are needed for future use in Austrian schools.

Assessment and permitted materials

None

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Your grade will consist of three parts, weighted equally:
1) attendance and participation during class
2) weekly homework assignments
3) a) teaching one or more lessons from the curriculum to colleagues during the seminar, and b) written reflections of this teaching as well as teaching of Gymnasium students
