3rd Annual Physics Education Seminar

Physics Department Faculty

Cal Poly Pomona

Come participate in a discussion of physics education over tea and cookies!

We have a special guest this year, Dr. Michael Loverude of CSU Fullerton, who will be presenting on his recent work in Physics Education Research (PER). In addition, our two newest faculty members who specialize in PER and K-12 outreach, Drs. Homeyra Sadaghiani and Barbara Hoeling, will be presenting, along with other Cal Poly physics faculty. The emphasis is on an informal atmosphere with lots of time for questions and discussion.

Some of the presentations include:
