Most of the site visit departments haveexperimented with CBIP mostly pedagogy andnot content Departmental effort not just junior faculty or justsenior faculty w o research programs .
CBIP often used as a recruiting tool for physics Designed to serve the appropriate audience Department continually works to improve the course s The Survey 74 Response Rate.
Thanks to Ken Krane and Roman Czujko 60 report significant curricular change in thepast several years Of those 71 report changes in CBIP Change.
Of those 50 Some Difficult Questions Why haven t the innovations been widely Why is there resistance to educational Why Don t Innovations Stick .
Innovations are no good Innovations good but no documentation of theirsuccess Assessment is difficult pace Mike Zeilik andBob Beichner Large upfront investment of resources required .
Lack of faculty development and reward Difficult to make the effort a departmental project withlong term sustained focus Student resistance How to make them stick G Gladding and R Lopez .
The Resistance To be discussed Saturday afternoon I was hired to do research My evaluations are great of course mystudents are learning .
Reform is just dumbing down the curriculum see quote from LloydTaylor 1938 Provocative Thoughts The goals of CBIP are often ill defined if defined at all .
An improved CBIP by itself will not save your undergraduate physics Energy and enthusiasm and concern count Details of content andpedagogy are of secondary importance One size does not fit all Local details are important A departmental effort is crucial The energetic hero model does not work.
in the long run Continuous experimentation and feedback are crucial Don t underestimate the tyranny of the textbook Textbooks do matter and the net effect is usually negative Conference Survey.
