Learning objectives
The course intends to provide the first tools and methods for the preparation, execution and undesrtanding for high school teaching of some physics experiments concerning electromagnetism and modern physics.
Expected learning outcomes
Mastery of the topics of the program; basic knowledge of the theoretical and procedural aspects of the Inquiry Based Science Education; analysis and synthesis abilities that enable students to deal with context-based diversified learning situations.
Course syllabus and organization

Single session

Lesson period
First semester
The lessons will be held remotely in sync with registration. Laboratory activities will be discussed and prepared to be carried out at home also with flipped lessons. Great attention will be given to the didactic aspects of distance learning
Course syllabus
The didactic strategy adopted is the result of the most recent research in physics education and is aimed at promoting a personal appropriation of the contents and experimental methods illustrated in the course according to an IBSE (Inquiry Based Science Education) teaching method.
The student of the course will be prompted to ask himself questions and formulate problems for the solution of which he will have to learn to design with the help of the teacher and, subsequently, to assemble and execute some experiences with didactic purposes, based on criteria of effectiveness and opportunity experimental which will be established from time to time starting from research results in physics education.
In addition, to further facilitate the personal appropriation of the physics topics addressed, some of the epistemological aspects of the main physical concepts covered in class will be presented and discussed with the students.
Prerequisites for admission
A knowledge of the main topics of mechanics and geometrical optics and of some elements of color theory is required.
Teaching methods
Lezioni a distanza in sincrono con registrazione con esperimenti a casa e lezioni flipped
Teaching Resources
A. Arons: A guide to introductory physics teaching
TEMI Project booklets
Two research articles from the physics teaching group of the University of Milan
Taylor: An introduction to error analysis
Assessment methods and Criteria
The exam consists of an oral discussion, which consists of two parts:
- a first part is aimed at verifying the theoretical knowledge acquired during the course and the acquired ability to plan and carry out didactic experiments of a type similar to those proposed during the course.
- a second part concerns the discussion of a paper (project) carried out by the student, possibly in a group, on topics proposed by the course teachers.
