(C) Physics Level I Modeling Professional Development (3 CEUs)

Course number : DEV10 E818   
« back to classes page
This professional development workshop introduces participants to a structured inquiry approach to high school physics teaching that incorporates computer technology and insights from physics education research. Emphasis is placed on the use of basic models and the modeling method in teaching mechanics topics.

Teachers will develop skills in fostering scientific discourse and presentation, and in assessment of student learning. By designing and carrying out a series of investigations that use the modeling method, teachers will practice data collection skills, problem solving approaches, and Socratic questioning techniques while interacting with other physics teaching colleagues.

Please read:  This registration is only for the optional Continuing Education Units (CEUs) that can be earned with this program.
One CEU is equivalent to ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education/training experience under responsible, qualified direction and instruction (definition of the International Association for Continuing Education and Training-IACET).
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are based on the number of sixty-minute contact hours for a course or program. (Example: If a course or program meets ten contact hours, one CEU will be awarded.) To receive CEUs, the participant must attend all the hours required for that CEU value.
Earned CEUs may be useful in maintaining certification or licensure. They may also document the participants’ continuing professional education for an employer, association or credentialing agency. Cal Poly Extended Education maintains a record of the CEUs participants have earned through programs and courses approved for CEUs.
CEUs are for non-credit courses or programs. They cannot be converted to quarter or semester hour credit and they cannot be applied to degree programs.
CEUs will not be awarded retroactively. Registration for CEUs must occur by the deadline specified for the program.
CEUs earned will be recorded on an official Cal Poly transcript, which must be ordered and paid for by the participant. An email notification will be sent to participants once CEUs have been recorded and transcripts can be ordered.
