='''NCN Workshop on Simulation-Based Learning'''=

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

This workshop will focus on teaching semiconductor devices and freshman chemistry.

Workshop attendees will learn:

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

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

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

• from faculty who have successfully incorporated nanoHUB.org into their curricula.

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.
