This guidebook provides information on research-based methods for teaching and learning physics and physical science. It was developed to help teachers and faculty apply the results of physics education research (PER) and teaching methods based on these results. Users can browse through dozens of teaching methods and resources, organized by type of instruction and class, research basis, topic, and similar information. The Guide provides an overview of the each method with references and related teaching strategies. The site also provides links to accessible collections of reference materials and connections to the PER Community.
Editor's Note: The Physics Education Research (PER) community has been at the forefront of cognitive research into how people learn science and specific methodologies associated with successful classroom implementation of evidence-based best practice. The guidebook is well organized so that non-researchers can quickly and easily locate materials applicable to their particular student constituencies. Highly recommended.
