Physics Education Research Conference 20/20

July 22, 2020 - July 23, 2020 in Online- virtual

Insights, Reflections, & Future Directions: Emergent Themes in the Evolving PER Community

Join us as we explore emergent themes in PER as a scholarly endeavor and as a research community!  Since its inception, PER has served as a confluence of discipline, theory, research methodology, practice, and application.  How have these facets and the interplays among them been fruitful for physics education globally, regionally, locally, or otherwise?  And, how have our successes and interactions influenced the very nature of PER itself?

If you are interested in submitting questions to our bridging session panelists, please go here for more info.
