As a Teaching Professor, my primary responsibility is teaching. I am continually looking for the most effective ways we can help students learn physics at Colorado School of Mines. One technique we currently use in our large enrollment introductory courses is Studio Physics. I am particulary interested in how we can use technolgy to improve learning both in the Studio setting as well as in other situations. While I primarily teach the large enrollment Physics I and Physics II courses, I have been known to occasionally teach a senior/graduate level course in laser physics.
