Welcome to PERbites! We’re just getting started and will be posting research articles here soon. We will be featuring two types of research articles:

  • Research summaries: These are short articles summarizing a recent paper regarding physics education research. Most of these will come from Physical Review: Physics Education Research, which is an open access journal, so everyone has access to the entire article.
  • Selected Readings in PER: These are articles listed in Selected Readings for Physics Education Researchers within and beyond PER, which was created at the 2011 Foundations and Frontiers PER Conference. This list includes many foundational works in physics education and includes examples of research that exemplifies a certain research methodology or research philosophy. Many of these papers are behind paywalls and are copyrighted, limiting what we can include from the article on this blog.
