UMass Physics Education Research Group (UMPERG)
PER at University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Our website provides perspectives on pedagogy, educational research results, applications to teaching, and curriculum materials.

C3P--Comprehensive Conceptual Curriculum for Physics
C3P is a curriculum project designed to implement research from physics education into high school physics courses and is supported by an NSF grant. The offices of C3P are located at the University of Dallas. Project is run by Richard Olenick.

University of Maryland Physics Education Research Group
Describes the work being done by the Physics Education Research Group (PERG) at the U of Maryland. There are also many resources for physics teachers and physics education researchers.

Socratic Dialogue Inducing (SDI) Labs
Guided construction labs featuring hands-and-heads-on experiments in introductory mechanics. Their effectiveness in promoting student crossover to the Newtonian World has been demonstrated by rigorous pre-post testing. SDI is an outgrowth of Richard Hake's research at Indiana U, Bloomington.

NCSU Physics Education Research Group
Projects, publications, people, and related links.

NCSU Physics Education Research (PER)
PER department within North Carolina State University. Provides links for further information on the subject.

Scientific Reasoning Research Institute (SRRI)
An interdisciplinary research organization devoted to the study of learning and instruction in the sciences and mathematics. Researchers perform cognitive research and apply it to the development of curricula to teach science and mathematics concepts and problem solving skills. SRRI is located at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

Modeling Workshop Project
The Modeling Method has been developed to correct many weaknesses of the traditional lecture-demonstration method, including the fragmentation of knowledge, student passivity, and the persistence of naive beliefs about the physical world.

The CPU Project
The Constructing Physics Understanding in a Computer-Supported Learning Environment Project (or the CPU Project) is aimed at creating laboratory and computer-based materials to support a learning environment where students take primary responsibility for developing valid and robust knowledge in physics.

Physics Modeling Workshop Project at Arizona State University
The Modeling Method has been developed to correct many weaknesses of the traditional lecture-demonstration method, including the fragmentation of knowledge, student passivity, and the persistence of naive beliefs about the physical world.
