Knowing a subject and being able to effectively teach it to a class are two very different skills. I was always told that teaching was an art, but P691G – Graduate Student Professional Development Seminar course showed me how it could be broken down into a science. I was able to apply some of these scientifically proven techniques in my Physics 132 lab courses and watch the students understand the physics concepts better and become more interactive in class. This inspired me to join the group to contribute to the self-efficacy study. I hope to learn more about the research methodologies used in Physics Education and understand how some of them impact the students.
