  Abstract: The physics department at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN, has completed a three-year transition to implement Studio Physics pedagogy in both semesters of its calculus-based and algebra-based introductory physics courses. The goal of the Studio Physics project was to increase both student learning and the retention of STEM majors. The transition required modifications to our course schedule, teaching schedules and the classroom environment. The effectiveness of the new pedagogy was evaluated using the FMCE and the CLASS. An overview of the transition process and the results of these assessments will be presented. The project was funded by an NSF STEP grant.
