Abstract Title: Phenomenographic study of physics faculty's instructional change
Abstract: PhysPort is a website for supporting physics faculty in implementing research-based teaching and assessment practices in their classrooms. As part of PhysPort research on developing resources to support faculty, we conducted 23 interviews on how physics faculty approach changes to their teaching.    Our research takes a faculty-centered perspective: what are the ways in which faculty think and talk about their teaching practice?  In this poster, we report on a phenomenographic analysis of faculty approaches to and motivations for change. Our phenomenography explored six different themes: how faculty approach their teaching; their motivation to make changes; their assessment practices for change; resources that they use; how they use those resources; and challenges they experience during the semester.
