Lending Library

You may want to read the International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. The open access Journal of Applications and Practices in Engineering Education is now online. Of course, the open access Physical Review Special Topics: Physics Education Research, is also available for free. There is a nice list of Engineering Education journals available at the Engineering Subject Centre website.

We have a variety of journals available in 224 Riddick Lab or on the web. They include:

General interest

  • Science (which recently started accepting articles on education research)
  • American Scientist from Sigma Xi
  • National Science Teachers Association NSTA Reports
  • Journal of College Science Teaching

Engineering

Physics

Chemistry

  • Chemical & Engineering News

STEM

We also have a nice collection of very useful guides to research, including:

A great general introduction to discipline-based education research can be found in Nuts and Bolts of Chemical Education Research, Diane M. Bunce, Renée S. Cole (Editors), American Chemical Society, 239 pages, 2008. Also, you might want to take a look at the the two volume Reviews of Physics Education Research for a good place to start investigating discipline-based education research.

If you are interested in misconceptions, see the ERIC for Vol I, II, and III of the 2nd Cornel Seminars on Misconceptions and Educational Strategies. Go here for the proceedings of the 3rd and 4th Seminars.

If you need data from various levels of educational institutions or want to track a student, the following websites may be useful:
