Getting Started With Pbl—A Reflection, Tanja Müller, Thomas Henning

Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-Based Learning

In this paper, we provide insight into the PBL project called PoLiMINT (Problem-oriented Learning in MINT). The project is located at the Bremen University of Applied Sciences and aims to introduce and foster PBL in the introductory phase of a physics study program. Concerning our general conditions, we will present our incremental implementation strategy and address the first elementary steps. In order to demonstrate our Scholarship of Teaching and Learning mode of reflecting the implementation process, we examine selected instructional and pedagogical difficulties and our problem-solving more closely.

1.0.A Daily Outline, Chris F. Bauer

Day 01

WELCOME to WINDOWS on the INQUIRY CLASSROOM!

You have landed on a piece of a National Science Foundation Project (DUE 1245730) directed by Professor Chris Bauer, Chemistry Department, University of New Hampshire. This is one part of a completely documented inquiry-based university science course called “Fire & Ice” which explores the nature of heat and temperature. There are multiple video perspectives and commentary from instructors and students, and documents of all course materials (agenda, instructions, student work). It’s too complicated to explain here. Take a look at the user orientation document at this link.

Partners provided each other with meaningful feedback on their syllabi and also exchanged lesson plans.

Week Three Introduction, Judith Longfield

Teaching Academy

After revisiting CATs and lesson planning, we will learn about additional teaching idea sources. We will then discuss motivation, illustrate a Chapter 3 concept, and learn ways to salt students' food before applying these ideas to our own lessons and assignments which are not currently motivating.

Week Four Introduction, Judith Longfield

Teaching Academy

After reviewing Chapter 4 with a jigsaw activity, we will revisit lesson planning by using a rubric to evaluate two different plans. We also learned how to use low tech "clickers" and discuss the students' inertia including ways to overcome it using simulations and other teaching strategies. If there is time, we will talk about Just in Time Teaching (JiTT), a technique to get students to read.


Week Five Introduction, Judith Longfield Apr 2015

Week Five Introduction, Judith Longfield

Teaching Academy

After investigating hazardous classroom materials, we will learn about diverse students and how to teach them. We will also write learning biographies for different students and used them to consider a variety of teaching-learning issues, including college student development. In addition, we will shared our CAT implementation reports and discuss the impact of classroom climate on student learning.

Teaching Academy

You have been added to this online workshop because you were unable to participate in the face-to-face version. Due to the manner in which this session is being delivered, you will be unable to actively participant with others. However, every attempt to "capture" the essential elements of the face-to-face version has been made. During this online session you will "dissect" a sample lesson in order to identify its parts, and learn a process you can use to plan lessons. You will also have the option to submit your lesson plan for review.
