Event Description
Elizabeth Gire
Oregon State University
 
We live in exciting time for physics and physics education. We are surrounded by technologies that are increasingly reliant on quantum phenomena. At the same time, university classroom practices are shifting toward more student engagement and pedagogical innovation. My group's recent work has been focused on the question of: what classroom experiences help physics majors learn quantum mechanics deeply and flexibly? Quantum formalism is representationally rich which brings both challenges and opportunities. In this talk, I'll focus on two aspects of our work: research about the power of multiple representations for learning quantum mechanics and incorporating responsive teaching practices in our advanced undergraduate quantum courses.
