Scientific Reasoning Labs 2024 Workshop


In this free, virtual workshop, you will learn about a set of introductory college-level physics labs that help students develop scientific reasoning skills. The series of labs developed by our workshop facilitators and their colleagues follow a theory-evidence coordination framework. As part of this process, a scaffolded approach is used to guide students in best practices in designing and collecting data from their own investigations. Students are then guided to graph their data in Excel and develop a mathematical model that can be used to coordinate with theory or for making predictions. Together, these activities support students to think like scientists.
