Software enquiry among alumni
• Alumni, working in industry, graduated from the
universities from the members of EG3
• Questions:
– Activity of the company?
– Type of tasks new physics graduates are getting
– What type of technical or scientific software is considered standard
in this type of company?
– The same for programming languages?
– Which soft skills are important in your professional environment?
Name three skills: most important-intermediate-least important.

Soft skills
General questionnaire STEPS
• Inventarisation of non-standard teaching methods for
university level physics teaching:
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
Problem based learning
Student-centred learning
Blended learning (on-line/face tot face)
Laboratory based learning
Distance learning
E-learning
………
Result general questionnaire
• Long list of universities physics departments
with contact-persons
• Provisionally arranged in categories
• Follow-up to be discussed in the working
session Ghent
Preparation evaluation MM in WG3, I
• Set of recommended MM from MPTL for
evaluation during 2006/2007 by members of
WG3 or their collegues
• Topics:
–
–
–
–
–
Classical mechanics,
Optics,
Thermal and statistical physics
Atomic and quantum physics
Electricity, magnetism, Electrodynamics
(EG3 made a contribution to the evaluation)
Preparation evaluation MM in WG3, II
• Evaluation after 2006/2007 on criteria:
– How it was used?
– Which problem is addressed?
– User-friendliness?
• Documentation, goal-description, obvious use of MM,
• Correctness, flexibility, effectiviness
– Scale of application: individual or university?
– Grading system; scientific way?
What next?
• Workshop Ghent:
– New teaching and learning methods:
• Categories
• Good practice examples
– Software enquiry: follow-up
– MM-evaluation
• Participation of WG3 in MM-evaluation
