Information Fluency and Physics Curriculum: Faculty/Librarian Collaboration

The session on Information Fluency and Physics Curriculum that I proposed for the American Physical Society March meeting was not accepted, but I do have an article in the newsletter for the Forum on Education.

Physics Curriculum: Faculty/Librarian Collaboration
http://www.aps.org/units/fed/newsletters/summer2008/viele.cfm

At the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) meeting in July, I learned of a husband/wife team who have created a writing program. He teaches engineering students at the University of Pittsburg, and she teaches physics students at American University. They have devised a writing program for these students that is excellent. You can see Dr. Budny's curriculum here: http://www.engr.pitt.edu/%7Eeng11/ The writing program is a collaboration between the engineering department, the English department, the library, and the writing lab.At the end of the year, the freshmen students actually have a conference at which they present a paper.

Greeting! What do you think of wow gold? I always lack of wow gold to buy some great item for my char before the wow patch 3.1 and I need to do wow power leveling for the cheapest wow gold or I have to search cheap wow gold on google search. The world changed since the 3.1 patch released. Short of buy wow gold for me wasn't so high frequency now. And I’m curious why this situation happened? The items became cheap? Or we can farm wow gold much easy? Hope someone can give me an answer.

Thank you! My mother and I ordered the curriculum. I was not sure if the Physics curriculum would be good. I used Apologia for Chemistry and was quite impressed. Thank you!
