Webinar: STEM Education: Enhance Student Learning with Simulation Apps
If you want to learn about using simulation apps to improve student learning, then tune into this webinar with Ivana Milanovic from the University of Hartford.

Simulation-based design and inquiry-based learning can be embedded in any science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) course to enhance the delivery of the material and help balance the time devoted to theory,

problem solving, and skill development.

Apps involve creating a simplified interface that contains the full efficacy of the underlying model without exposing the end user to its complexity. In this webinar, you will see how STEM courses can be modified to contain scaffolded and contextualized simulations with app building. These simulation apps help develop students’ technical competency and deeper understanding of physical concepts by solving realistic technological problems.

This webinar will include the following:
  • Introduction to a new educational approach that integrates mathematical modeling, numerical simulation, and visualization techniques
  • Details on how to use simulations and apps within lecture-based courses
  • Live demo of app building in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software

You can ask questions at the end of the webinar during the Q&A session.
