When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
SESSION: Discussing Computation in Undergraduate STEM Around a Cracker Barrel
EVENT TYPE: Education
TIME: 3:30PM - 5:00PM
SESSION CHAIR: Norman Chonacky
ABSTRACT: The growth of computation use in scientific research and development places new responsibilities on undergraduate STEM curricula. In particular, physics is where most scientists and engineers receive a foundational part of their technical education. A Partnership for Integration of Computation into Undergraduate Physics (PICUP) is engaged in research on and development of solutions to the question: How can physics best serve the computational needs of all STEM disciplines? Throughout the SC11 Education Program, various members of the PICUP have referred to some computational materials they are developing as exemplary solutions. The research piece of our work depends on getting input from STEM instructors concerning their views on this issue. In this vein we will hold an informal "cracker barrel" roundtable discussion -- an occasion for you to speak to the PICUP.
