Foundations and Frontiers of Physics Education Research: Puget Sound 2020

June 18, 2020 - June 21, 2020 in Diablo, Washington at the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center

The fifth Foundations and Frontiers of Physics Education Research: Puget Sound  (FFPERPS) conference will be held June 18-21, 2020, at the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center.

FFPERPS is intended as a biannual conference that provides a venue for rich dialogue among physics education researchers in the Cascadia region and beyond. It is designed to enhance communication and collaboration and to increase the visibility of work that is of high quality but not well known. The conference provides a forum for examining and articulating the current state of the field, exploring future directions, and discussing ways to pursue promising avenues of research. The structure of the conference, loosely based on that of the FFPER conference held in Bar Harbor, Maine, includes plenary talks, targeted sessions, contributed poster sessions, and substantial free time for informal interactions.

The 2020 conference will feature plenary speakers engaged in a wide variety of exciting research and scholarship around the learning and teaching of physics.

In addition, the conference will offer contributed poster sessions, as well as a series of targeted sessions/workshops.

The registration deadline will be in May 2020.
