About PERC 2004
The Physics Education Research Conference (PERC) provides an opportunity for those in the field of physics education research and allied fields to share their research, obtain feedback, explore diverse perspectives and discuss issues relevant to the community. Various session formats afford the opportunity for maximum interaction. The focus at PERC is on feedback and discussion with others engaged in physics education research, rather than on dissemination.
This year's theme is "Transfer of Learning." Participants will explore diverse perspectives on the meaning and implications of transfer of knowledge and learning as it pertains to their research. While all of the presentations and activities at PERC will not explicitly focus on transfer of learning per se, participants are urged to reflect and discuss how various perspectives on transfer of learning can inform their own research as well as the overarching agenda of the field. A variety of session formats will provide opportunities for multiple perspectives in our discussion of transfer of learning.
The registration form for the 129th National Meeting of the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) includes a line to register for PERC 2004. The cost for registration is $65 and includes lunch and a copy of the Conference Proceedings.
The PERC dinner on Thursday evening is ticketed separately. Please purchase dinner tickets and register for the PERC in advance since on-site registration is limited.
A variety of session formats are available to participants in PERC 2004. These include Invited Talks & Panel Discussions, Targeted Poster Sessions, Data Analysis Consultation Sessions, Workshops, Roundtable Discussions and Contributed Posters.
