What is physics education research (PER)?
FAQ · 12 April 2022
Physics education research (PER) is an interdisciplinary form of research that investigates learning and teaching in physics to improve instructional practices. Traditionally, PER has stood at the crossroads of physics and the social sciences. Physics education researchers often use tools and methods from educational research to study learning processes that are unique to the physics discipline.
