This site is a comPADRE collection designed specifically to serve as an informational touchpoint and online community for "producers" and "consumers" of physics education research (PER). Here you will find links to articles and dissertations, research groups, PER-based curricular materials, news and events, and many other things of interest to our community. Everyone is encouraged to register and participate in the growth of the site-the more visitors we have coming through and providing thoughts, opinions, and further content, the more valuable this site will become!

Users of PER-Central are encouraged to actively participate. They may vote in polls, share thoughts, suggest materials for the editor to include in the collection, and build personal collections of materials. Although anyone may use the database, participation requires the creation of a user account so that contributions can be connected to the user. Account creation is free and requires only a name and email address.

The PER-Central website is provided by the American Association of Physics Teachers. It is supported, in part, by the National Science Foundation and their National Science Digital Library Initiative. Opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of the AAPT or NSF.
