Meetings and Collaborations


Physics education research (PER) is a field of growing importance to physics departments across the United States. Government funding agencies, private corporations, and private foundations have given financial support to support research on the learning and teaching of physics.

Training in PER lends itself to a variety of career goals,

  • research and teaching at the university level
  • teaching at the primary and secondary level
  • consulting
  • software development
  • museum education
