Physics Education Research Lab

The Physics Education Research Lab at Michigan State University  (PERL@MSU) is an interdisciplinary collaboration that studies: how students in learn physics and engage in physics practice, social and contextual factors that promote student learning and engagement, assessments (conceptual learning, epistemology, and practice), and educational technology use and practice. We support work in a variety of contexts from pre-college to post-graduate. Our research group includes faculty, staff, postdocs, and students from the Department of Physics and Astronomy, the College of Education,  Lyman Briggs College, and the CREATE for STEM Institute.
