Design and Implementation of a Second Year Electromagnetism Module
Main list: Physics and Astronomy Colloquia
Electromagnetism is a challenging topic to teach and to learn. For example, students often find it difficult to distinguish between force and field, to understand electromagnetic induction. It is well known that many students struggle to apply mathematics in their study of physics in general and in electromagnetism in particular.
In this talk I will outline how systematic inquiry into how students learn physics (i.e., Physics Education Research) has identified common difficulties, and I will illustrate instructional materials that help students overcome them.
