Book Section Detail Page

written by Robert J. Beichner
This article aims to introduce the reader to the field of Physics Education Research (PER).  Topics include the difference between Physics Education Research and Physics Education/curriculum development, a brief history of PER in the US, and some of the research traditions within PER (current types of PER, types of questions asked, research methods used, etc.).  By necessity, many important aspects of the field have been omitted in an effort to produce a short, readable overview.
