Enhancing Conceptual Understanding in an Online Physics Course

Thursday, November 05 | 5:55PM–7:10PM | Hall F, Table 15
Session Type: E09 Hybrid
We have developed online teaching strategies for an introductory, calculus-based physics course modeled after effective classroom methods, which rely on active engagement and social interactions. During this presentation, we will demonstrate the online teaching strategies, report on research examining students' enhanced conceptual understanding, and share online course design recommendations.
