Title: Changing learning in introductory labs: A PER-based course transformation
Abstract: The algebra- and calculus-based introductory physics labs at NC State serve about 2500 students each semester. Lab courses like these are an important opportunity for students to learn experimental skills and ways of thinking. Over the past few years, physics education research (PER) has increasingly focused on learning in labs, providing valuable insight to guide instructional transformation. In this colloquium talk, I will highlight some PER scholarship related to labs, provide an overview of the transformation of some of our introductory lab courses, and share some preliminary evaluation results.
