Program Management System - 21st BCCE - LEPS: A Large Enrollment Guided Inquiry Physical Science Course

Workshop Title: LEPS: A Large Enrollment Guided Inquiry Physical Science Course
Descrption: The LEarning Physical Science (LEPS) curriculum is designed to be richly interactive, student- centered, and collaborative, but is intended for use in large/lecture-format classes or other settings where hands-on experimentation and whole class discussions are difficult. To overcome these limitations, LEPS makes use of interactive tools such as class response systems, interactive demonstrations, online homework, and computer simulations. LEPS is based on the Physical Science and Everyday Thinking (PSET) curriculum. LEPS focuses on core conceptual themes of energy, forces, and the atomic-molecular theory of matter. In addition, LEPS explicitly engages students in learning about the nature of science and learning. This workshop will introduce participants to the LEPS curriculum, including instructor and student materials, and explore the possibilities and limitations of guided inquiry in large/lecture format classes. Development of LEPS is supported by an NSF Phase 2 CCLI grant (DUE-0717791).
