David Brookes




I am an assistant professor of physics at FIU (Florida International University).

My research field is physics education research. I use the ISLE philosophy by Etkina and Van Heuvelen in my physics classroom.

My research follows two strands: 1. I am interested in embodied cognition and use this general approach to understand how physics students understand language and how they understand physics equations. 2. I am interested in engineering the learning environment so that physics students can teach themselves, acquire scientific abilities, and develop positive attitudes towards physics.
