Aims, contents and method of the course

This seminar will train pre-service teachers in the use of Open Source Tutorials (OSTs), a set of worksheets based upon physics education research. Unlike Tutorials in Introductory Physics from which they derive, OSTs have an explicit emphasis on student attitudes about the nature of physics knowledge and learning.

Assessment and permitted materials

Students will be assessed based upon classroom participation, weekly homework assignments, and facilitation of OST's for their classmates (a sort of micro-teaching).
90-100% (1)
80-90% (2)
70-80% (3)
60 - 70% (4)
50-60% (5)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Students are expected to attend and participate actively in class, to complete homework assignments thoroughly and on time, and to be prepared when it is their turn to facilitate Tutorial.

Examination topics

There are no exams in this course

Reading list

Journal articles written in English and other readings will be posted online. The Tutorials themselves will be provided to students.
