Nobel Laureate Carl Wieman: "Effective Teaching Should Create Students Who Think Like Scientists"

Nobel Laureate Carl Wieman: "Effective Teaching Should Create Students Who Think Like Scientists" | Higher Education | Scoop.it

Teaching science and mathematics needs to be more of a science like astronomy, not a folk art like astrology. The goal should be to have “all students think about and use science, mathematics, and engineering more like scientists do” Wieman sad.

11 Teaching Strategies For Spotting The Blind Spots In Your Classroom

11 Teaching Strategies For Spotting The Blind Spots In Your Classroom | Higher Education | Scoop.it

"When Stanford Professor Lee Shulman was first enmeshed in the research that led to Board certification of teachers by NBPTS, I asked him – in a hotel bathroom, of all places – what interesting findings were turning up about great teachers as compared to the rest. He replied: 'Well, you might not find this such a big deal, but a big indicator is the degree to which a teacher accurately describes what happens in her classroom.'"

Carl Wieman's story of transformation as an educator

 

"When I first taught physics as a young assistant professor, I used the approach that is all too common when someone is called upon to teach something. First I thought very hard about the topic and got it clear in my own mind. Then I explained it to my students so that they would understand it with the same clarity I had.

 

... And whenever I made any serious attempt to determine what my students were learning, it was clear that this approach just didn’t work. An occasional student here and there might have understood my beautifully clear and clever explanations, but the vast majority of students weren’t getting them at all.

 

...  New graduate students would come to work in my laboratory after 17 years of extraordinary success in classes, but when they were given research projects to work on, they were clueless about how to proceed. Or worse—often it seemed that they didn’t even really understand what physics was.

 

But then an amazing thing happened: After just a few years of working in my research lab, interacting with me and the other students, they were transformed."
