With all the scientific advances in the last 500 years, why is science education stuck in the dark ages? Join Nobel Laureate and Stanford Professor Carl Wieman as he shares leading-edge research on how people learn—research that is setting the stage for a new approach to teaching that is better for students and educators.

Carl Wieman holds a joint appointment as Professor of Physics and of the Graduate School of Education. He has done extensive experimental research in atomic and optical physics, and won the Nobel Prize in 2001. His current intellectual focus is now on undergraduate physics and science education. He has pioneered the use of experimental techniques to evaluate the effectiveness of various teaching strategies for physics and other sciences, and recently served as Associate Director for Science in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
