SUPER Group about SUPER

The Sydney University Physics Education research (SUPER) group was formed in 1992 by members of the School of Physics to coordinate efforts towards understanding more about the processes of teaching and learning in physics. Since that time, new members have joined the group, several PhD students have completed their degrees in physics education research and many collaborations within and outside the university have been forged.

What does SUPER do?

Members of SUPER are doing research into a wide range of questions about the way physics is learned.
Amongst these:


When the SUPER group was formed, the original members put together a document outlining their argument for pursuing physics education research in an academic physics context. That text lives on today as the SUPER Group Manifesto.
