  Description The small classrooms common in two year colleges and smaller universities offer unique opportunities for blending Physics Education Research (PER) based pedagogies with other lab and classroom activities. This workshop will present diverse examples where Interactive Lecture Demonstrations (ILD’s) and other technologies are combined in this environment. Examples include demonstrations that use computers, demonstrations that become guided inquiry activities for part or all of the class period, and demonstrations with clicker stimulated discussion. Additional activities will be presented that integrate familiar uses of computers (e.g. simulating concepts or environments not easily created in the lab, rapidly analyzing or presenting data in uniquely accessible forms, and capturing phenomena not easily observed) with other curricular elements in ways that are suggested by insights from PER. The workshop will prepare participants for a closing discussion identifying competing factors that they must weigh in making appropriate choices in their local departments or individual classes.
