Objectives

Knowledge and understanding

Students will acquire the knowledge needed for the design of laboratory activities as a teaching tool.

2. Application skills

Students will acquire specific application skills in relation to the choice of teaching tools, materials, spaces and forms of participation to be proposed in the classroom. Particular emphasis will be placed on the ability to create simplified experimental set-ups functional to the teaching activity.

3. Autonomy of judgment

The didactic laboratory represents the application of the scientific method as a tool for the analysis of natural phenomena. Students will acquire the ability to identify the most suitable tool / experiment for different teaching needs.

4. Communication skills

The ability to develop laboratory educational courses will be developed and evaluated, also by means of public presentations.

5. Ability to learn

The didactic objective is to promote the use of the Physics laboratory and the preparation of simple experiences, as a teaching instrument to develop the interest and curiosity towards Physics problems. The learning ability will therefore be assessed in relation to the understanding of different teaching tools, their role and use in different contexts.

Contents

PART 1
- The Physics Museum of the University of Cagliari: training course on the contents of a visit for primary and secondary school students of first and second grade.

PART 2 (practical activity in the lab)
- The role of the laboratory in the teaching of Physics.
- Different approaches to the laboratory activity
- Planning of laboratory activities.
- Preparation of teaching units on different topics of General Physics: mechanics, fluids, electricity / magnetism, light, energy.


PART 3
- Introduction: the limits of the frontal lesson delivered with traditional methods, FCI test. Concept tests and peer instructions: how they work, what they are used for, examples, resources
- Polling: detection systems of class responses. Comparison of moodle, mentimeter, socrative, skype, telegram, google classroom.
- Conceptual test exercises: students present their conceptual tests
- Just-in-time teaching: how to choose and how to correct homework; Moodle; Perusall, Hypothesys every student ready for every class
- Design the evaluation
- Techniques for public speaking

Teaching Methods

Frontal lessons and individual/group laboratory activities.

Verification of learning

PART 1
Official guide at the Physics Museum
(suspended due to rhe restriction related to the covid pandemic).

PART 2
Development of a laboratory teaching unit (practical activity).

PART 3
Presentation of one of the topics proposed during the Course.

The overall mark will be determined by mediating the evaluation obtained in the three parts.
