Call for questions for the PERC 20/20 Bridging session panelists

This year's PERC will be uniquely focused on communal reflections on the role of physics education research. To promote meaningful discourses about the history, current status and future projections of PER, we have invited a group of plenary panelists with diverse expertise in DBER and/or PER to join us in our Bridging Session (see for the introduction to our invited panelists). We believe candid and deep dialogues will take place when the entire community are actively engaged.

To that end, we would like to crowdsource questions that you believe are pertinent to the theme of this year's PERC and are important to be asked of our panelists. We will collect and compile them into a list to be used for the Q&A component of our Bridging Session.

You can submit your questions to before July 14. There is no limit on the number of questions you can submit or the number of times you can submit. We also encourage you to invite your colleagues to submit their questions. After all, we want to make sure the community's voices are being heard and addressed.
