Course from SciTrain Free tutorials for instructors
“SciTrain U has free online courses and reference materials for
university instructors. Its purpose is to teach the basics of Universal
Design for Learning, emphasizing accessibility for people with disabilities.
We currently have two courses: a general training course and a
specialized workshop for instructors with large class sizes. Log in to
explore either one.”

Help Wanted: Physicist!: Just because we can, should we?
Lobby Congress! Influence policy! Student teams for special interests lobby various groups in order to investigate and weigh the outcomes from modern physics research. Topics students study may include plasma physics, fusion, superconductivity, lasers, optical engineering, condensed matter, quantum teleportation, and biophysics.
Phabulous Physics: Can all the events around us be anticipated and explained?
Use Physics! Phabulous Physics! To solve physics puzzles presented by linear motion, students learn about motion by working with challenging physics problems. Students use spreadsheet software to analyze and represent data from a physics problem and then present their physics findings to their peers by creating a brochure. To seek community input about local traffic hazards, students then produce a survey or blog and post it on a site. Armed with this community data and their own research, student groups take on the role of members of a highway safety advocacy group. Their task is to create and deliver a slideshow presentation to the city planners proposing changes
Tables charting the chemical elements have been around since the 19th century – but this modern version has a short video about each one.We’ve done all 118 – but our job’s not finished. Now we’re updating all the videos with new stories, better samples and bigger experiments.Plus we’re making films about other areas of chemistry, latest news and occasional adventures away from the lab.
Most recently we’ve started a new series – The Molecular Videos – featuring our favourite molecules and compounds.
