Shubha Tewari

Lecturer, Physics

Spring 2017 Innovation Fellow

Fellowship Project & Instructional Interests

My innovation challenge is to find effective tools, technological and  otherwise, to help increase participation and engagement for those  students who hesitate to speak up in class. In Physics, these are often, but not exclusively, women and minorities. My overall goal is to increase engagement in the classroom for all students, allowing them to have a learning experience that is better tailored to their learning styles. With the large number of technical innovations available for our use, we tend to evaluate a tool by learning about it and thinking of ways to include it in our teaching. But we would be better served by starting with the learning objective, and finding the tool best suited to it. What I hope we as innovation fellows can achieve is to help make this matching process easier for ourselves and our colleagues.
