Particle Physics (PHYS 441)
In this course, part of the course will be delivered in the traditional ways and other parts will be delivered through the web. In the second delivery mode, the student will be responsible for learning the material. I will try to make the material on the web as interactive as possible to illustrate the concepts and group discussions as well as quizzes will be used to make sure that students aquired the intended concepts. This way of learning is called Blended Learning and it proves to be useful in enhancing the learning skills of students.
