Contributor Information:
The meeting theme is Active Learning With Classroom Demonstrations.  Traditional classroom demonstrations are often presented in a passive instructional mode.  This approach leaves many students unengaged and does not typically facilitate active learning.  How are you using classroom demonstrations to actively engage students?  Possible contributions include:


  • Your favorite demonstration tweaked to produce more active engagement
  • Activities that have embedded demonstrations
  • Variations and updates of interactive lecture demonstrations as previously described by others in physics education
  • Research results concerning the effectiveness of traditional and alternate modes of classroom demonstrations/activities


If you are proposing a talk or workshop please provide the  the following information: Your name, your institution, a presentation title, a several-sentence abstract and an estimated time for the presentation (the traditional format for talks is 10 minute or 15 minute talks with 5 minutes for questions - so 15 or 20 minute totals).  Workshop times can range from 50 to 90 minutes.  (Let us know if you have particular needs.)
