Harry Shipman's Home Page

I'm a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Delaware. Here you will find links to course syllabi, research papers that I've written in science education, research papers in astronomy, other information about me, and to other web sites that my students and others visiting this page might find helpful. Some of these links may not be active, yet...

I'm also a fellow of the University's Math-Science Education Resource Center, a unit devoted to supporting Delaware's K-12 faculty in their efforts in education reform; a Faculty Leader in our Institute for Transforming Undergraduate Education, and Principal Investigator of the DISCUS initiative, which brings together leading faculty from Delaware's three publicly supported higher education institutions. (DISCUS stands for Delaware's Innovative Science/mathematics Collaboration for Undergraduate Success).
