Foundations and Frontiers of Physics Education Research: Bar Harbor
Jun 12, 2011 - Jun 18, 2011 in Bar Harbor, Maine
We have opened registration for this year's Foundations and Frontiers of Physics Education Research meeting, to be held June 12 to 18 in Bar Harbor, Maine.
The conference is a venue for specialists who are active researchers in the field of physics education. This intensive week-long residential meeting will provide a forum for examining and articulating the current state of the field, exploring future directions, and discussing ways to pursue the most promising avenues for future research.
The conference features a series of plenary lectures given by established and emerging leaders in PER. Each will address the theme of Foundations and Frontiers by synthesizing major accomplishments in the field and/or speculating on the directions they consider especially important and promising. Afternoons will be devoted to unscheduled time for informal discussions. Evening sessions will include working groups on subjects of community-wide interest, topical groups for specific research issues, and a contributed poster session. The goal of the conference is to foster the type of direct and intense discussion possible in a small residential meeting of specialists.
