Teaching Laboratories

We teach our introductory physics classes in a special format that combines laboratory, lecture, and problem solving together in the same session.  For this "workshop physics," we have two custom-designed laboratory classroom spaces. New equipment and a newly designed layout mean that no more than two students use an experimental station at one time and a maximum of 24 students can participate in an integrated lab-lecture session. The new labs make teaching easier since professors can introduce a concept in lecture and then assist students as they immediately apply the newfound knowledge in lab.
