Our faculty members and graduate students constitute one of the most well-known and respected physics education research groups in the nation. Historically, we have made significant contributions to the field in assessments such as TUG-K and BEMA; in curricular contributions, such as the development and implementation of the Matter and Interactions curriculum; and in originating the SCALE-UP studio classroom environment. Our faculty and graduate students have also contributed to the development of WebAssign and visualization software such as VPython and VideoGraph. The APS journal Physical Review: Physics Education Research originated here.
We have varied interests including assessments, problem-solving, visualization, and pedagogical and curricular reform. If you’re interested in joining or visiting us, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
