modeling in myanmarNext Generation Modeling Courses  (NGMC) are graduate-level online/hybrid-online courses for physics and physical science teachers (grades 6-12) offered through the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Department of Physics/Astronomy. These professional development courses have four main goals: 

  • Strengthen subject-matter content knowledge in physics
  • Deepen understanding of research-based methods of science teaching; common student learning difficulties; the Next Generation Science Standards; and teaching/learning theories in physics education
  • Engage teachers in the national conversation about the goals and methods of science teaching through participation in state and national science teaching organizations, local special-interest groups, and action research 
  • Provide a pathway to Higher Learning Commission (HLC) compliance for teachers in the Cooperative Academic Partnership Program (CAPP) 

All Next Generation Modeling Courses provide a suitable entry point into the Modeling Method of Physics Instruction (except the Intermediate Modeling Topics and Advanced Modeling Topics) and the concepts of Deep Learning in Introductory Physics

The first two courses offered in this course suite are:

   Waves and Applications for Teachers, 2 cr. (Spring 2018)  Enroll now!
   Modern Physics for Teachers, 2 cr. (Summer 2018)  Enroll now!  (This is a revised date.)
