We're proud to announce that the PERL Team has contributed to 10 PERC Papers in 2017.
Prof. Katie Hinko is leading a team that was awarded a $10,000 Science and Society @ State grant. Working with Prof. Megan Halpern, their project titled: Hidden Value: Investigating the Physics Demonstration as Aesthetic Experience looks to explore physics demonstrations as meaningful experiences.
Angie Little and colleagues published a paper in the Journal of Science Teacher Education titled: Building Reflective Practices in a Pre-service Math and Science Teacher Education Course That Focuses on Qualitative Video Analysis
Vashti Sawtelle and Danny Caballero were both named 2018 Teacher-Scholars for their fantastic teaching and research:
Prof. Vashti Sawtelle is featured in the January issue of the Engaged Scholar Newsletter. The article titled: Can Physics Educators Create a More Encouraging Environment for Black, Latino, and Native American Science Students? discusses how physics educators can help build more inclusive and supportive classrooms.
Graduate student Nick Young published a paper investigating students' accuracy in determining the period, frequency, and angular frequency from mathematical and graphical representations.
Graduate student Alanna Pawlak published a paper examining how students interact in groups in the physics classroom which introduced the modes of collaboration framework.
