Research in Science & Technological Education Vol. 34, No. 3 (2016) pp. 290–306
Background: Practical work is widely seen as a necessary part of a good physics education, but convincing evidence that it impacts positively on pupils' learning is scarce. Recent work suggests the use of talk and discussion might hold the key to...
Physics Education Vol. 53, No. 5 (2018)
Putting an electrical circuit within an inaccessible black box and asking pupils to deduce what wiring is contained within the box based solely on the circuit's behaviour is a simple teaching idea with a long history. Problems arise when trying to...

Journal of Chemical Education Vol. 92, No. 3 (March 2015) pp. 561–566
An applied computational chemistry laboratory exercise is described in which students use modern quantum chemical calculations of chemical shifts to assign the structure of a recently isolated natural product. A pre/post assessment was used to...
