  Description A common question instructors wrestle with is: How do I get my students to develop a strong understanding of physics? In this workshop you will explore some new materials designed to get students to think about fundamental concepts in alternative and multiple ways to promote robust learning. Participants will work with a variety of tasks and task formats that require students to think about the basic physics in the domains of kinematics and dynamics, including rotational dynamics, in nonstandard ways. Participants will be given a CD with more than 400 tasks, and other materials.
