About Ramesh Dhungana
I am currently teaching Physics and Astronomy at the University of Colorado Denver. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Physics and Astrophysics at the University of North Dakota in 2009 and I taught calculus based and algebra based Physics at the Lake Region State College North Dakota before joining to the UC Denver. Prior to my doctoral degree, I received M.Sc. degree in Physics from Tribhuvan University Kathmadu Nepal in 1996. I taught mathematical physics for one year, college level physics for six years and co-authored two volumes of algebra based physics after receiving M.Sc.. While teaching physics, I was selected for a year long teachers training program sponsored by Government of Nepal and earned Post Graduate Diploma in Education in 1998. I make classes interactive by bringing relevant multiple choice questions to the class and and allowing students to respond using iClickers during class. I also use worksheets to help students to master problem solving technique inside the classroom in groups in the supervision of learning assistants and me. I use appropriate multi-media technologies such as very short videos, animations and more to enhance the effectiveness of teaching and learning.
