Instructional Strategies in Introductory

Description: Recent research findings in teaching and learning indicate that the “traditional” lecture-style, passive learning model does not substantially impact the learning and understanding of most students who take introductory physics. The research also indicates that most students enter introductory physics with alternative conceptions to many of the basic concepts that are taught in introductory physics. For most students, passive learning techniques generally do not replace these “misconceptions” with concepts that are more consistent with our understanding of nature. Results from Physics Education Research PER have indicated that active learning techniques have substantially increased student conceptual understanding, which provides a basis for problem solving with understanding in introductory physics. This workshop will provide an overview on these efforts and the research in problem solving. Various approaches to problem solving based on research will be presented. This will be followed by small group work on creating sample problems that employ these approaches. This work will be shared and critiqued by the group and workshop leaders. The advantages and weaknesses of these approaches will also be discussed. Organization Info: PhysicsWorkshops www.physicsworkshops.org/

VMware vSphere: Install, Configure & Manage

Description: VMware vSphere: Install, Configure & Manage This is a 5-day distance-learning training starting Monday, January 14th & ending January 18th from 9a.m. - 5p.m. CT This hands-on training course explores installation, configuration, and management of VMware vSphereTM, which consists of ESXi and vCenter Server. The course is based on ESXi 5 and vCenter Server 5. Completion of this course satisfies as a prerequisite to take the VMware Certified Professional 5 exam. Faculty participants who complete this course may enroll in any of several more-advanced vSphere courses. See www.vmware.com/education for advanced course options. By instituting this program, VMware seeks to create a collaborative relationship with academic institutions whereby their students may obtain the VMware Certified Professional (VCP) status and other VMware certifications. Participation in VMware vSphere will provide you with VMware vouchers for exams. *Note: This training opportunity is for Teachers/Faculty. Verification of teaching status and institution will be requested. Participatints also will be assisted in the enrollment of their institution into VMWare IT Academy program during or prior to the course as needed. CSSIA is pleased to offer continuing opportunities for faculty attending CSSIA's Faculty Development Workshops (FDW) to obtain graduate credit. Faculty can earn 3 graduate credits through the University of Illinois - Springfield by enrolling in an online course and doing some additional follow-up work (describing how you would integrate FDW knowledge into your programs). Tuition for this option is about $1200, and you would be responsible for paying your own tuition. Your institution also may have a tuition reimbursement program that would support this effort. The University of Illinois - Springfield has been offering graduate credit to community college faculty for events like this for 8 years with great success. For more information, go to https://edocs.uis.edu/tmims1/www/cssia/ PLEASE NOTE: Although there is no cost for the workshop, there will be a no-show fee of $500 billed directly to your institution for each registered individual who fails to cancel their registration a minimum of 10 business days prior to the first session of this course.
