This week there’s a great opportunity to learn more about lots and lots of NSF-funded STEM education projects. Check out this showcase of more than 100 videos. The videos offer a 3-minute glance into the variety of innovative work being funded by the National Science Foundation in education.
You can do stuff during this week:
View videos of interest, post questions to the presenters, join the discussions that are taking place around each video, and vote for your favorite videos via facebook, twitter, or email ballot. And please spread the word about this event to friends, family and colleagues!
I have two videos in the showcase myself (click the link to get to the video):
- PhET interactive simulations
- Physics and Astronomy New Faculty Workshop
Check them out, and we’d appreciate your vote!

I’m giving another free webinar for i>clicker next Tuesday, May 5th, at 3pm ET. This is called “ClickerStarter for College Faculty” and is intended as a quick primer on the effective use of clickers for those who want an overview of the benefits and best uses of clickers.
Have you heard about using clickers in class, but haven’t gotten around to actually trying it? Let us introduce you to this powerful tool to increase student engagement, and help make teaching fun. In this interactive webinar, we’ll explore the why and how of using clickers to ask thoughtful questions that provoke student discussion. We’ll talk about the advantages of clickers, look at some example questions, discuss common challenges, and strategies for overcoming them. You will leave this webinar armed with resources and ideas, ready to try clickers in your class.
