What are authentic scientific practices? Why should we bother engaging students in scientific practices when we can just tell them what they need to know? How do we engage our students in authentic scientific practices in an online setting? In this SI Happy Hour, we will explore answers to these questions in the context of physics.

Participants will engage in a quick scientific investigation followed by a more formal discussion of the practices of physics and why having our students learn to think and reason like scientists is critically important for the 21st century workplace and the future of humanity. Participants should install the phyphox app to their phones.

Presented by David Brookes.

Series Overview
The Scientific Teaching in Practice Webinar Series extends the learning and dialogue that occurs at the Summer Institutes (SI) on Scientific Teaching into a year-round community that supports and inspires evidence-based teaching. Each month, the SI community is invited to attend an interactive webinar related to the practice and/or dissemination of scientific teaching. The webinar will be facilitated by someone experienced in that area, integrating significant time for questions and open discussion. Webinars are open to SI alums as well as those generally interested in scientific teaching and evidence-based teaching strategies.

Coordinated by the following
The series is brought to you by Yale Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching.

This web talk is promoted by the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT).
