Computational Physics for Upper Level Courses

[Download Detailed Program]

The conference program is arranged (1) to stimulate discussion among participants, (2) to inspire them to use their own computational and instructional experience, and (3) to develop specific activities that they can use in their courses and within their departments during the coming academic year. In the process of doing so they will generate valuable information that the conference organizing committee will incorporate into a white paper reporting on a better understanding of the rationale, methods, and strategies that can enhance computational physics education.
