This fine site serves as "an informational touchpoint and online community for 'producers' and 'consumers' of physics education research (PER)." The site is provided by the American Association of Physics Teachers and visitors can search through thousands of articles, theses and dissertations, research groups, curricular material, and news and events. First-time visitors can use the search engine or can look under the subtopics contained within the "Basic Research" or "Applied Research" areas to get started. The For the Classroom section, located on the homepage, is a great resource for educators and brings together student activities, pedagogy guides, and more. For those with a specific interest, the homepage offers six thematic tabs, including Curriculum, Research Articles, and Dissertations. Within this last section, a number of great resources can be found within titles such as "Improving Students' Understanding of Quantum Mechanics" and "Transforming Teacher Knowledge: Modeling Instruction in Physics."
