This workshop will focus on teaching semiconductor devices and freshman chemistry.
9 Workshop attendees will learn:
11 • how to employ the “How People Learn Framework” to design effective student learning experiences using www.nanoHUB.org;
13 • about the opportunities and the issues that attend the use of simulations in learning situations;
15 • ideas about how best to utilize nanoHUB.org in your curriculum; and
17 • from faculty who have successfully incorporated nanoHUB.org into their curricula.
20 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.
