Research Interests: Physics and Astronomy Education

Physics Education Research (PER) and Astronomy Education Research (AER) faculty at Cal Poly Pomona combine the fundamental "knowledge about learning" and the "discipline specific knowledge of physics" to investigate ways of making the teaching and learning of physics more effective. PER and AER faculty conduct research, curriculum development, and instruction to improve student conceptual understanding in physics and physical science from elementary through college. Our faculty study questions of how students learn in both lower-division and upper-division classes in Physics and Astronomy, and how to develop, implement, and test the effectiveness of pedagogical learning strategies and technology designed to maximize student learning.
