Remote Resources

The Summer Internship Team has been working diligently on PEER Physics remote resources for teachers and students. These resources include:

  • Chapter-Specific Collaboration Documents
  • At-Home Experiment Instructions
  • Options for Student Reflection
  • Expected Observations from Experimental Videos (for teacher use)
  • 3D Assessments on Google Forms 
Overviews and instructions for how to use these new resources are also being developed. Chapter C and Chapter E documents are currently live on the website. All other resources will be available by September 1st.  Materials can be found on the Remote Learning Resources page of the PEER Physics website (login required).

Take note of these events to collaborate and learn from one another

PEER Physics Symposium

Have you been teaching with PEER Physics for at least a year? Are you interested in building community and resources with other PEER instructors? Consider attending our annual Symposium! The PEER Physics Symposium will take place virtually on October 17 from 9am-12pm MT. The purpose of this collaborative event is to bring together veteran PEER Physics instructors interested in sharing, discussing, and solving challenges in the classroom. Highlights of the day will include:

  • Working Group Reports
  • 5-in-5 Presentations to share ideas 
  • Roundtable Discussions on Problems of Practice

Be on the lookout for Symposium registration information in the September newsletter.

Celebrating Success

Honoring the great work of PEER Physics teachers

One of my favorite parts about teaching PEER Physics is watching my students learn that they are capable of understanding high level physics content through their own everyday observations and the observations they make in my classroom. One thing I’ve done my best to not lose touch with in this remote learning experience is the ability for my students to collaborate with each other. Whole group collaboration is a foundational part of a successful and fun PEER Physics classroom. Because of this, my students have had the skills they needed to replicate this process in an online setting.
