The Advanced Physics Series: Electronics: connecting with students
One of a series of lectures/demonstrations in the Advanced Physics Series for physics teachers produced in conjunction with the University of Melbourne.
Dr Roger Rassool, a senior lecturer in the School of Physics at Melbourne University explores different approaches to teaching electronics and photonics. He shows that questions about the physics underlying household devices can be used to engage students and promote discussion.
