Undergraduate Lecture courses
Lectures are the traditional format for teaching a subject like physics. However at MIT a Professor does not simply work the chalk boards, they operate our demonstrations in an effort to provide spectacular examples to solidify lecture topics.

Technology Enabled Active Learning
TEAL is The Physics Department's integration of a studio format learning environment into introductory physics courses pioneered by Professor John Belcher. The intention is to shrink lectures into multiple small block presentations broken up by various in class activities. Additionally students are organized into groups and encouraged to collaborate within the class.
In class activities include:

  • Demonstrations
  • Labs
  • Group problems
  • Computer Simulations
  • Concept questions with live polling feedback
