Physlets Workshops

A good source of material for Physlets workshops is the book titled Physlets: Teaching with Interactive Curricular Material by Wolfgang Christian and Mario Belloni.  This book can be ordered from on-line booksellers.  It is also available from your Prentice Hall textbook representative.

2002 Winter AAPT  Meeting in Philadelphia, PA

Using Interactive Java-Based Pedagogy in the Classroom (W18)

The Instructional Media committee has recommended that an half-day Physlet workshop on Physlet-based pedagogy.  Unlike the summer workshop, this workshop will not teach you how to script Physlets.  Rather, we will present and distribute Physlet-based curricular material that uses various teaching strategies.   These strategies include:  Just-in-Time-Teaching, Peer Instruction, Tutorials, and Ranking Tasks. 

Instructors wishing to author Physlet-based material should consider the longer in-depth summer workshop.  Instructors wishing to instigate Physlet-based teaching strategies should consider the shorter winter workshop.  Or you may want to come to both!

In preparation for the workshop please visit the  Physlet CD Mirror.

It is not necessary to become a web-expert to use these technologies.  We will distribute ready-to-run curricular material and the Physlets book to all workshop participants.  Physlets are free for non-commercial use at educational institutions.  We will show participants how how to modify and adapt the distributed material for use at their home institutions. 

 Enroll in this workshops using the AAPT website.


2001 Spring NC  AAPT  Section Meeting
NC School of Science and Math, Durham, NC

Participants will learn how to use Physlets, i.e., interactive Java applets written at Davidson College, to deliver HTML-based interactive media-focused problems and other interactive curricular material to students.  We will present and distribute Physlet-based curricular material that uses various teaching strategies  including:  Just-in-Time-Teaching, Peer Instruction, Tutorials, and Ranking Tasks.

2001 Summer AAPT  Meeting in Rochester NY

A full-day Physlets workshop will be offered at the winter AAPT meeting.   Enroll in this workshops using the AAPT website.

Physlets: Creating Interactive Curricula Using Java Applets ( W 34 )

Participants will learn how to use Physlets, i.e., interactive Java applets written at Davidson College, to deliver HTML-based interactive media-focused problems and other interactive curricular material to students. Example problems, Java applets, and a sample website will be distributed. Web technology in support of Just-In-Time Teaching will be presented. Prior experience with HTML is useful but not essential.
