Prof. Ian Beatty

In 2008-2009, the UMass Physics Education Research Group (UMPERG) relocated to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where it has joined the UNCG Department of Physics & Astronomy. At UNCG, we are collaborating with faculty and students from other departments and colleges/schools, including the School of Education, Psychology, and Computer Science.

At the moment, we do not have a graduate program in PER. However, we are in the process of starting up a masters program, so students interested in a MS in PER should contact us. We cannot offer a PhD in PER yet, but students who enter a PhD program in another department (e.g., the School of Education or the Cognitive Psychology Group) can collaborate with us on their dissertation research.

We have not yet ported our web site from UMass to UNCG, so for information about us and our projects, please see our old site (part of the UMass Scientific Reasoning Research Institute's site):
