Physics Education Research Group

The Physics Education Research Group is an integral part of the School of Physics and Astronomy at Leeds. Our research looks at the ways in which students learn physics and develop as physicists in the 21st Century. Results of this research allow developments in curriculum, delivery and assessment to enhance the student experience. Our projects encompass the ‘life-cycle’ of student experience, from outreach and transition to university, through engagement, active learning and effective assessment, to embedding employability to support students in their onward journey.
