Fundamentals of Physics Education with an overview of IPPP Outreach Initiatives
Galileo once said that good teaching is one-quarter knowledge and three-quarter theatre. Such a vivid quote is embodied by the well-established figure of charismatic teachers in cinema, exemplified by Robin Williams in Dead Poet Society.
Is teaching a matter of talent or is there specific training everyone can undergo? Lastly, How do students learn?
In this talk I will briefly introduce the basics of Physics Education, surveying various Learning Theories and addressing the problem of misconceptions.
Then the talk will shift to its practical side. I will be pleased to share with you "my two cents" about teaching and public speaking, including theatrical skills and useful apps.
We will finally overview the IPPP outreach initiatives I am working on and about, and I welcome any collaboration or assistance.
