At the University of Cincinnati, the PER group is a mutual effort between the Physics Department and the School of Education.  The work of the group focuses on projects involving the implementation and evaluation of best teaching practices and curriculum in the introductory physics sequences, research on student development of scientific reasoning as well as its assessment, and pre-service and in-service teacher professional development.  The group includes Kathy Koenig and Alex Maries, both from the Dept of Physics at UC main campus, as well as two faculty from UC's branch campuses: Krista Wood (UC Blue Ash) and Darwin Church (UC Clermont). However, due to the nature of the research conducted, a variety of faculty members from across UC, as well as collaborators at other institutions, are involved in many of the projects.
