Undergraduate laboratory physics – Has anything changed in 25 years?
At the 1982 conference of the Society for Research into Higher Education, which was entitled ‘Innovation through Recession’, I gave a paper on ‘Cost Effectiveness in Laboratory Teaching’, in which I concentrated on changes in both pedagogy and cost-effectiveness. Looking back at the paper after 25 years, I will briefly describe its content and challenge the audience to tell me what positive changes in both pedagogy and cost-effectiveness have occurred.
Our General Interest Seminars are an opportunity for distinguished speakers to present new research in physics and related areas. The material presented is suitable for undergraduate level upwards and all members of the School are welcome to attend..
