University Physics Metareader

Dr. Simon Bates, Associate-Provost, Teaching and Learning and Professor of Teaching in the UBC Physics Department, has worked with students in PHYS117 to create a innovative student-generated meta-cognitive reader to accompany an existing open textbook.

Although this resource is still in development, it will highlight key concepts, point out areas that students often find difficult to understand, and provide links to other course sections to support future learning and to integrate it with previous knowledge.

The Library supported this project through a subgrant enabling a student who had previously taken the course to contribute to the meta-cognitive reader.
