The Interactive Learning Toolkit: supporting interactive classrooms, at 128th National AAPT meeting (Miami, FL), Monday, January 26, 2004:
Research-based interactive learning techniques have dramatically improved student understanding. We have created the 'Interactive Learning Toolkit' (ILT), a web-based learning management system, to help implement two such pedagogies: Just in Time Teaching and Peer Instruction. Our main goal in developing this toolkit is to save the instructor time and effort and to use technology to facilitate the interaction between the students and the instructor (and between students themselves). After a brief review of both pedagogies, we will demonstrate the many exciting new features of the ILT. We will... Read more about The Interactive Learning Toolkit: supporting interactive classrooms
An introduction to femtosecond laser science, at Photonics West 2004 Conference (San Jose, CA), Sunday, January 25, 2004:
This interactively taught half-day course provides basic knowledge of measurements of and research with femtosecond laser pulses. Beginning with the basic principles of the interaction of light and matter, we'll discuss the often non-standard aspects of the interaction of intense short pulses with matter. Using worksheets we'll address a number of common conceptual misconceptions in an interactive and collaborative setting.

This course will enable you to:

  • understand the basis for the electronic and optical properties of solids and the interaction...
