5 Chicago, IL
8 Workshop attendees will learn:
10 • how to employ the “How People Learn Framework” to design effective student learning experiences using;
12 • about the opportunities and the issues that attend the use of simulations in learning situations;
14 • ideas about how best to utilize in your curriculum; and
16 • from faculty who have successfully incorporated into their curricula.
19 The workshop will include hands-on experience with semiconductor simulation tools on nanoHUB and discuss proven practices for using nanoHUB resources to reach classroom goals.
