Teaching and Learning

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning:

  • Graduate student Theresa Spanjers and Dr. Chitra Rangan present Physics lesson packs with a Focus On Reaching Curricular Expectations.  These in-class kits will help 11th & 12th grade science teachers to present modern physics topics such as quantum mechanics, special relativity and green energy to their classes. 2012.
  • Improving problem solving in upper-level electromagnetism using scaffolding, CLIF grant 2010, Centre for Teaching and Learning.
  • Contributor, Merlot Elixr Academic Integrity Digital Case Story Project, 2009.
  • Presenter, "Approaches to Plagiarism Education:  A Panel Discussion", Centre for Teaching and Learning Workshop, University of Windsor, 2007.
  • Presenter, '64-496: A multi-genre, collaborative course on technical communication for physicists', Engaging the 21st Century student: regional conference on teaching and learning, University of Windsor, 2006.  
  • Active learning methods in improving student learning outcomes (ongoing). 

Professional development:

  • Seminars and workshops offered through the Centre for Teaching and Learning.
  • Completed a course "Online Education" in W10.
  • Summer 2002 Obtained certification of ‘Michigan Teaching Fellow’ through the Preparing Future Faculty program, The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI.
