2011 McGraw Award winner and North Carolina State University physics professor Bob Beichner will deliver this Thursday’s FSU Physics Colloquium talk at 3:45 in UPL 101. The title of Bob’s talk is “Changing pedagogies and technologies for today’s students.”
Our students have very different experiences and expectations compared to students of only a decade ago. Changing demographics and the ubiquitous nature of information technology should cause us to rethink what we do in our classrooms. During this talk I will discuss how students have changed, how technology is changing the purpose of formal education, and how we as educators should respond.
