Abstract Title: Cogenerative Physics Reform Through CMPLE
Abstract: We describe a veteran high school Physics Modeling teacher's semester-long reform effort to implement pedagogical changes, which were informed by her students' participation in the Cogenerative Mediation Process for Learning Environments (CMPLE).  Our analyses of classroom video and teacher interviews from this instrumental case study indicate the teacher used CMPLE to transform her pedagogy by expanding her practice to encompass her students' learning preferences, as well as her own teaching beliefs, observations, and reflections.  CMPLE is a formative intervention designed to help students and instructors collaborate to improve classroom dynamics, and centers upon participants' attempts to match their collective environment with their learning preferences.  Participants use cogenerative dialogues to produce achievable goals, in order to guide those attempts.  For this poster, we focus on the pedagogical changes related to the cogenerative goal of "teacher-led examples before practice".
