Event Information:

Many years ago (in 2004), the Rutgers University physics education research group devised a list of most common processes that physicists engage in when creating and applying physics knowledge to operationalize the vague notion of “critical thinking” that we wish our students to develop. This list was based on the observations and interviews of practicing physicists and the studies of the history of physics. The list became the list of "scientific abilities" that students can develop when taking physics courses.
