The Director of Laboratories at the KSU Department of Physics is responsible for the coordination of instructional support for the Department’s undergraduate courses, training and oversight of teaching assistants, coordinating assessment of learning outcomes, developing new and innovative instruction and preparing instruction-related proposals for external and internal funding. The teaching load of the Director will primarily involve one introductory course in physics or astronomy per semester. The Director oversees approximately 30 graduate and undergraduate teaching assistants.
The Department applies new pedagogical methods and technology in its introductory and advanced undergraduate courses and seeks to expand these methods. [See Am J. Phys. 74 1077-84, (2006)] The Director of Laboratories will actively collaborate with faculty in facilitating these changes.
