Course Description: This course tracks how we have understood ourselves and our world—including time, space, gravity, and our gadgets—as understanding of physics has evolved. Topics will include Newton’s “discovery” of gravity, Einstein and relativity, energy particles and waves, the atom and how we use it, Schrödinger’s cat, and modern technologies. Reporting Relationships: Adjunct Faculty will report to an Academic Dean Responsibilities: Competency-Based Education (CBE) allows students to master content and skills within a course or program at their own pace and prioritizes the demonstration of student learning over time. Students are able to show what they know when they know it. CBE courses are broken into multiple modules that are self-paced. Each module has an assessment at the end of it that allows students to demonstrate their mastery of the material. CBE Assessment Adjunct Faculty members focus on grading the work coming in from students. They are assigned a set number of students that are theirs and all submissions from those students are graded by their assessment faculty member. Grading is facilitated through the use of detailed rubrics and feedback. Very little direct communication is had with students and more attention is put on the grading itself. This allows for an unbiased grading process and a faculty member with an expert understanding of the course project and its requirements.
