Article Published on the Active Physics Curriculum

A scholarly article evaluating the Active Physics curriculum at Washington University was published this month in Physical Review Special Topics – Physics Education Research. This study, a collaboration between the Center for Integrative Research on Cognition, Learning, and Education (CIRCLE) and the Physics department at Washington University, revealed significant attitudinal and conceptual-learning benefits for students in the Active-Physics sections, relative to the traditional-lecture sections. The data show that some of the attitudinal benefits of small, inquiry-based courses may be achievable in larger course with interactive engagement curricula.
