Online Short Course

Light Illustration from the book

This course was based on the NSTA Press publication Light: Stop Faking It! Finally Understanding Science So You Can Teach It by Dr. William Robertson. The course explored ray, wave, and particle models of light to explain the basics of reflection and refraction, optical instruments, polarization, interference, and diffraction. The instructor guided participants through easy-to-understand explanations and facilitated discussions that enhanced teacher knowledge of common physical science concepts. Participants contributed to asynchronous weekly discussions and completed suggested reading assignments from the Light e-book, journal articles, and NSTA’s Nature of Light SciPack and SciGuide.
