Interview, December 2007
Interview with the 2001 Nobel Laureate in Physics, Carl E. Wieman, 11 December 2007. The interviewer is Adam Smith, Editor-in-Chief of Nobelprize.org.
Following on from his interview with Nobelprize.org in 2001, Carl Wieman talks about his change in career since being awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics. Dr Wieman talks about how predicting the future success of students in his lab sparked a more general interest in people's learning behaviour (7:39), why education practices are failing students (15:32), and the changes he believes should be made (20:16). This led him to turn his attention from physics research to science education, and he discusses the challenges of setting up Science Education Initiatives at the University of British Columbia and the University of Colorado (27:10), the achievements so far (45:55), and his future plans (59:47).
