Instructional Support

The Physics Instructional Support Group serves Berkeley faculty, graduate student instructors, undergraduate students, and the larger physics education community by:

  • providing physics instructors with over 600 lecture demonstrations to complement most lower division courses
  • supporting instructional labs for five lower division courses and two upper division courses
  • working with faculty and graduate instructors to develop new teaching materials
  • advising instructors on course web site development and new instructional technologies
  • assisting with special departmental events and programs for K-12 students and the public
  • exchanging ideas and materials with the physics education community 

The Physics instructional labs and associated offices and prep rooms are located in 2nd floor of Leconte Hall. The lecture demonstration office and prep room are located in 72 LeConte Hall, adjacent to lecture halls 1, 2, 3, and 4 LeConte. An additional physics lecture demonstration prep room is adjacent to the large lecture theater in Pimentel Hall.
