Abstract Title: Transforming to Three-Dimensional Learning Across Institutions
Abstract: There have been many attempts to transform physics courses in sustainable ways, but little research on how to effectively make change. Three-dimensional learning (3DL)  is currently being implemented in several college classrooms with varying levels of success. This suggests that the different environments and cultures have an effect on the implementation and sustainability of 3DL. We are working to understand the barriers that hinder the transformation to 3DL-courses. This research is centered on members of a faculty learning community, that investigate and discusses implementing 3DL in their classrooms. The purpose of this work is to determine what factors encourage and discourage faculty from adopting 3DL frameworks, and how adopting this framework changes student outcomes across institutions. Identifying these factors will help us understand how cultures and classrooms can be efficiently transformed to 3DL.
