Abstract Title: Fleeting but powerful: How affect matters for teaching, learning, and doing physics
Abstract: This workshop will examine affect within interactional moments to explore the significance of fleeting affective events in physics education. Participants will engage, reflect, and share their affective experiences in physics as a way to demonstrate the diversity and universality of affect within teaching and learning physics, and to motivate the need to research affect in physics education. Following the opening discussion, participants will work in groups to build claims with respect to affect through moment-to-moment analyses of video data from physics classrooms, tutorials, and interviews with students. Participants can expect to leave with a refined understanding of the importance of affective experiences within moments of teaching and learning physics and some practice using analytical tools and methods for conducting video-based research on affective dynamics in physics learning environments.
