Welcome to the NC State Physics Education Research Group!
Our faculty members and numerous graduate students
constitute one of the most well-known and respected PER Groups in the nation.
Historically, we have made significant contributions
to the field in assessments such
as TUG-K and BEMA; we have made curricular contributions,
such as the development and implementation of the Matter
and Interactions curriculum; and we have developed
the SCALE-UP studio classroom
environment. Our faculty and graduate students have also
contributed to the development of WebAssign and
visualization programs such as VPython and VideoGraph.
The new APS journal, Physical Review Special Topics:
Physics Education Research is based here.
We are a large group with varied interests including assessments, problem-solving, visualization, and pedagogical and curricular reform. If you're interested in joining or visiting us, please don't hesitate to contact us!
