Dr. Farida Mohiuddin-Jacobs, Associate Teaching Professor of Physics at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, will be presenting on ‘Engaging Students in Learning Physics with Video Lecture Quizzes’.

Abstract: Learning physics is difficult for many students in introductory classes. The abstract concepts as well as the pre-conception that physics is all about math create a physics phobia among students with weak math backgrounds. Students avoid studying physics, they are frequently absent in the class. Their exam and course grades suffer because of this lack of participation. I have introduced Video Lecture Quizzes (VLQ) as a learning tool in figuring out the important information needed to learn physics concepts. They learn how to read a physics problem and extract clues. Students take small steps in the learning process which are less overwhelming than learning the whole topic all at once. These low-stakes VLQ questions help students learn concepts, while they earn points to improve their course grades. These questions are conceptual to build an understanding of physics principles.
