The PER User's Guide: A New Web Resource for Consumers of Physics Education Research
  Location: KFC Courts

  Abstract: The PER User's Guide is a web resource to help physics educators learn about the results of physics education research (PER) and apply those results in their classroom. We are launching a pilot site this year with guides to a small selection of research-based teaching methods. We plan to extend this site to become a comprehensive guide to all aspects of PER that are relevant to educators. This will help educators by summarizing, condensing, and translating the vast web of knowledge contained in the field of PER into a format that is easily accessible, enabling educators to quickly find and use the information they need. The PER User's Guide design is based on user testing and research into faculty adoption and adaption of research-based teaching methods.
  Footnotes: The PER User?s Guide is a collection hosted on and is supported by NSF NSDL 0840853.
