Physics Education Research

The Department of Physics and Astronomy is dedicated to excellence in teaching at both the undergraduate, and graduates levels. These efforts encompass the incorporation of new teaching methodologies, technology, and professional development to improve educational outcomes. Concurrent with improvements to the classroom is rigorous evaluation, using both established and new assessment techniques, to study and report on the effectiveness of our educational program. Current efforts focus on the development of additional assessment tools, application of established assessment and problem classification systems, and the development of additional supplemental resources, applied to our introductory service courses, primarily serving engineering majors.
