Event description

Description

PHYS1001 is the first 'mainstream physics' course for students intending to complete a BSc focussing on physics or students in other disciplines who want to have a thorough grounding in physics. PHYS1001 lectures do not follow the traditional lecture style. Instead students are engaged in active learning, where they become active participants in the lectures. Individual students respond with wireless response units ('clickers'). PHYS1001 has over 200 students enrolled.

Professor Tamara Davis and Professor Andrew White have exceptional reputations for both their teaching and research. Both are Vice Chancellor’s Teaching and Research Fellows. Professor White is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science, and was previously an Australian Research Council Federation Fellow. Professor Davis received the Australian Academy of Science’s 2015 Nancy Millis Medal, and was the 2014 Astronomical Society of New Zealand Beatrice Hill Tinsley Lecturer & the 2011 Australian Institute of Physics Women in Physics Lecturer.

PHYS1001 is known for enthusiastic lectures combined with a new active learning environment which has resulted in lively classroom debates with a cohort that has developed a genuine thirst for a conceptual understanding of physics.

Professor White teaches the first half of the course, Professor Davis the second half.
