About PERC 2007
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.
The Physics Education Research Conference will be held in the Sheraton Hotel in Greensboro, North Carolina.
This year's theme is Cognitive Science and Physics Education Research. Participants will explore diverse perspectives focused on this theme. While all of the presentations and activities at PERC will not explicitly focus on this theme per se, participants are urged to reflect and discuss ways in which their own research can relate to the conference theme. A variety of session formats will provide opportunities for multiple perspectives in our discussion of the conference theme and/or general issues related to methodology of physics education research.
The registration form for the 2007 Summer Meeting of the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) includes a line to register for PERC 2007.
A variety of session formats are available to participants in PERC 2007. These will be announced shortly.
