The Physics Education Research Group at Colorado (PER@C) is one of the newest and largest research programs in PER in the nation. Our research group develops and studies: uses of technology in physics education, assessments (conceptual, epistemological, and belief oriented), theoretical models of students learning physics, social and contextual foundations of student learning, examination of successful educational reforms and replication studies of such reforms, and student problem-solving in physics. We sponsor a number of educational reforms in physics, which range from pre-college to post-doctoral. The research group includes faculty, staff, and students from both the Department of Physics and the School of Education. read more »
Integrating STEM Education at Colorado (ISTEM) is a program to synergize and integrate the various science, technology, engineering and math education programs and projects at CU Boulder. ISTEM is a 5-year initiative to establish the University of Colorado as a national hub of STEM education research and reform. Specifically, ISTEM will become a distributed national institute located within the University of Colorado to coordinate and centralize: 1) efforts to transform STEM education, 2) research on STEM education, 3) STEM Teacher preparation. Integrating STEM Education is a Signature Program of the University of Colorado and an NSF Innovation through Institutional Integration Program.
