Workshop attendees will:

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

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

• identify how best to utilize in your curriculum; and

• identify how faculty 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 nanoHUB resources to reach classroom goals.

Participant Survey
Please take the time to share your thoughts!

Please take the time to share your thoughts and experiences and help us better understand how to use computational simulations as learning tools.

Please respond to a short questionnaire by clicking on your name. The information you will provide to us will be very useful to identify how nanoHUB is being used for educational purposes. We are interested in learning more about your instructional approaches for incorporating nanoHUB simulation tools as part of the classroom activities.

Thank you.
