Gordon Research Conferences - Physics Education Research

Jun 06, 2010 - Jun 11, 2010 in Mount Holyoke College, South Hadley, MA

The 2010 Gordon Research Conference on Physics Research and Education, the sixth in this series of conferences, will focus on the expanding and deepening role of and connection between experimental research and laboratories in physics instruction, with particular emphasis on undergraduate education. The purpose of this conference is to have a serious discussion about cutting-edge experimental research in physics and physics education and laboratories in physics education. We will discuss how students' learning experiences can be leveraged by incorporating contemporary research in physics and physics education. The format of the conference-which will include invited plenary sessions, contributed poster presentations, and generous amounts of unscheduled time for informal discussions-is specially designed to promote dialogue and cross-fertilization of ideas between educators and researchers at the forefront of their fields, including researchers in physics education.

College and university faculty, research associates (postdocs), laboratory-based physics textbook authors, curriculum and educational material developers, and graduate and undergraduate students are invited to participate.

Submissions are due by May 16, 2010
