  14. 14. University of British Columbia, 2011• “ is more important than who does the teaching” (2001 Nobel Laureate and physicist, Carl Wieman)• “ from graduate student-instructors than they did from a highly-rated veteran professor giving a traditional lecture” (Carl Wieman, 2011)
  15. 15. University of British Columbia, 2011 UBC, Spring 2010, 250 physics students, 3 hours a week of classes x 11 weeks. Interactive Method Traditional Lecture MethodTaught by two Grad Students Taught by a long tenured professor ; TV remote-like Lecture mode“clicker” devices ; almost no lecturing , higher attention Lower attendances, lower attention Traditional methodsTeachers received No real-time feedback of students’ on quiz results learning and understandingDepends on Depends more on the instructor’s and how the brain unique style and approachlearnsOutcome: Outcome: of 12-question quiz: 74% Average score of 12-question quiz: 41%
