Abstract Title: Experiences Sharing PER in Mexico
Abstract: Sharing work in PER in other countries can take several forms.  Conferences, workshops, and publications are possibly the most accessible places to start.  Several challenges are often encountered:  language, working conditions, availability of technology, different systems of preparation of teachers, access to the literature of our field.  In spite of the differences in language, many clues as to their thinking about the phenomena present themselves, in particular body language?non-verbal communication.  This poster will illustrate how these challenges have played out in the experience of one PER community member sharing PER in Mexico.
