**Van Heuvelen, Alan : Ohio State University**

Dr. Alan Van Heuvelen, a faculty member at Ohio State University, is a respected physics professor known nationally for a creative multiple-representation and active learning method of teaching physics. The multiple representation method is based on research on how students actually learn physics.
