Abstract Title: The Impact of Physics Education Research on the Teaching of Introductory Quantitative Physics
Abstract: During the Fall of 2008 a survey, designed to collect information about pedagogical knowledge and practices, was delivered to a representative sample of physics faculty across the United States.  In this poster we present information about the survey design and implementation.  Additionally, we present results related to faculty knowledge and use of specific products from Physics Education Research, as well as an analysis of the reasons faculty give for not using more of these products.
