Fairmont State Professor to present at the 2023 Association of Nepali Physicists in America Conference
On July 14, Fairmont State University Assistant Professor of Physics, Dr. Ganga P. Sharma will present at the 2023 Association of Nepali Physicists in America (ANPA) Conference. The presentation title is ‘Improving Teaching in Physics Courses Using SCALE-UP Pedagogies.’ SCALE-UP is a method of teaching that takes the focus off of the teacher and makes learning more student-centric through collaborative and hands-on activities.
"I am highly excited to present my physics education research at the 2023 ANPA conference,” said Sharma. “It will provide me with opportunities to connect with great physics education professionals, present and discuss effective teaching strategies and practices, and establish collaborations in the field of physics education research.”
The Association of Nepali Physicists in America is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to furthering physical science education and sharing physics research among Nepali physicists around the globe through various scientific activities.
During the ANPA Conference presentation, Dr. Sharma will discuss effective teaching approaches and learning environments to improve students' learning outcomes and retention and enhance students’ problem-solving skills in physics courses. Dr. Sharma is highly dedicated to enhancing the learning experience in physics using active engagement, social interaction, feedback and reflection, inclusive and supportive classrooms.
