The theme of the 2018 PER conference was "Having Wonderful Ideas: Connecting the Content, Outcomes, and Pedagogies of Physics." This conference was an invitation for the PER community to engage in debate and discussion about educational goals for their students that go beyond understanding physics concepts and problem-solving approaches. These goals can include understanding how physics knowledge is generated, understanding how to learn difficult concepts, learning more general problem-solving skills, developing confidence in physics/science, and developing a physics identity. 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.
