For information on these programs, contact Professor Richard Steinberg
His current research interests include understanding
the impact of technological
teaching tools in education classes and in physics classes, evaluating
the effectiveness of new teaching strategies at CCNY, and investigating
the difficulties that
students have learning quantum mechanics. Opportunities ranging
from a few hours to full time are available to interested undergraduate
and graduate students, post-docs in physics, and pre-college science
Physics Education Research: Systematic studies on how
learn science in general and physics in particular.
Innovative Instruction: Student-centered instructional
with documented effectiveness.
Teacher Education: Programs for in-service and pre-service
