Project Based Learning for Electrostatics
Mora, César | 2015
This paper presents the results of the teaching strategy based in The Construction of Prototypes (TCP) and Project
Based Learning (PrBL) which was applied in a course of electricity and magnetism for engineering students of two
universities in Bogotá-Colombia. This research has been focused on developing three projects, namely: electroscope,
Torsion Balance Coulomb, Van de Graff generator. We present our Analysis result obtained using psychometric tools
such as Hake gain. In addition, the strengths and difficulties of the strategy employed compared to traditional
instruction are presented.
