The theme of the 2023 PER conference was "Working together to Strengthen the PER Community of Practice." This conference was an invitation for the PER community to explore emergent themes in PER as a scholarly endeavor and as a research community. In addition to the papers addressing this year’s theme, the remainder of the papers represent the diversity of current research within PER and help this volume fulfill its purpose of providing an annual snapshot of the field.

Readership: Physics education researchers (faculty, post-doctoral students, and graduate/undergraduate students); researchers in fields close to Physics Education, such as cognitive science, chemistry education, biology education; physics faculty at undergraduate and graduate levels; high school physics teachers.
