Physics Education Research at CU-Boulder





Resources

The members of the PER@C develop, employ and study a variety of resources for educators, graduate students, and researchers.

The Reforms Tabs: lists a number of the reforms we employ and study in undergraduate physics (e.g., clickers in the classroom, new courses in PER, etc)

Local Course Materials: Course materials from CU Boulder - includes concept tests, exams, syllabi and more for lower division and upper division physics courses.

The Colorado SEI physics page This contains many resources from the Carl Wieman Science Education Initiative, specifically targeting upper-division physics courses.

STEMclickers: Colorado resources including written guides and short videos to help get instructors starting using Clickers and peer instruction in classrooms.

PhysTEC: is a collaborative program designed to simultaneously promote course transformaion at CU and recruit, prepare, and support the development of future physics teachers

STEM-CO/ LA-TEST program: a larger cross disciplinary program which PhysTEC partners with. LA-TEST specifically researches the impact of the Learning Assistant model on undergraduates (to become teachers, develop deeper content knowledge, pedagogical content knowledge etc)

PFPF: Initially part of the national PFF program, a program directed for grad students to develop the broad suite of skills for duties/ opportunities that await them beyond grad school.

Brownbags in Education: an informal program for CU physics faculty to discuss issues in education.

TA Resources: a suite of resources for graduate students as they engage in teaching assistant duties.
