Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation

Description

Draft in english: We report on a significant change in motivation, active participation and learning yield though a non-traditional approach in teaching experiments in physics teaching both in high school and on university level.
This is achieved through a transition from point-to-point procedures to an objective-driven procedure. The students are given an objective, which they then work with, in their own tempo and own approach, with proper guidance and apparatus.
By giving the students an objective, the responsibility for the successful outcome of the experiment is transferred from the teacher to the student. In the new role, with responsibility for the success for the experiments, the students work with a renewed motivation and eagerness on both the experiments and reports.
The new method, however, on the teacher side, does require a non-traditional preparation and trust in a successful outcome in the startup phase of the transition, as the transition takes time to implement and for the students to get used to.
