What Can We Learn from PER: Physics Education Research?
Singh, Chandralekha
Physics Teacher, v52 n9 p568-569 Dec 2014
Physics Education Research (PER) focuses on understanding how students learn physics at all levels and developing strategies to help students with diverse prior preparations learn physics more effectively. New physics instructors are encouraged to visit, a website devoted to helping instructors find effective teaching resources based upon PER. The site has links to PER-based teaching approaches, hosts instructional materials sorted by pedagogy, and provides assessment tools and tips for troubleshooting if hurdles are encountered in the implementation of PER-based instructional strategies.
