Presenter: Deb Katz
In this webinar, we will discuss the use of historical case studies in introductory physics. We'll also cover the characteristics of highly motivated students and what we can do to motivate our introductory physics students.
In the broadest sense, a case study is an educational story that is traditionally used in medicine, business and law education. Case studies may be woven into traditional teaching pedagogy or developed for contemporary project-based methods. A student working through a case study is in the role of practitioner.
