CGSR 989: Introduction to University Teaching
Dr.s Michael Bradley and Gap Soo Chang from the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics and Dr. Ramaswami Sammynaiken of the Saskatchewan Structural Sciences Centre (SSSC) and Biochemistry were awarded the 2013 Provost’s Prize for Innovative Practice in Collaborative Teaching and Learning for their project called “Innovative Laboratory for Engineering Physicists and Physicists in the 21st Century.” The project put together two different upper year instructional approaches so that students would have an opportunity to apply their technical skills to a real-world consultative problem. The resulting course, Physics 404, is an innovative blend of the strengths of structured, rigorous approach used by upper year ‘cook book’ labs, and the more open ended approach used in an undergraduate thesis.
