NCN Workshop on Simulation-Based Learning: Exploring Semiconductors, Nanoelectronics, and Beginning Chemistry

by George B. Adams III, Krishna Madhavan, Sean Brophy, Alejandra J. Magana

NCN Workshop on Simulation-Based Learning

November 5 – 6, 2009
Big Ten Conference Headquarters and Meeting Center
Chicago, IL

Workshop attendees will learn:

• how to employ the “How People Learn Framework” to design effective student learning experiences using;

• about the opportunities and the issues that attend the use of simulations in learning situations;

• ideas about how best to utilize in your curriculum; and

• from faculty who have successfully incorporated into their curricula.

The workshop will include hands-on experience with semiconductor simulation tools on nanoHUB and discuss proven practices for using naonHUB resources to reach classroom goals.
