Announcing GPER's Inaugural APS Fellows

The GPER Executive Committee is pleased to announce our 2015 American Physical Society Fellows.

  • Steven Pollock, University of Colorado, Boulder—For pioneering efforts in upper division physics education research by applying interactive engagement teaching methods and by performing measures of their effectiveness.
  • Richard Steinberg, City College of CUNY—For contributions to understanding the teaching and learning of physics ranging from elementary school science to quantum mechanics and for using physics education research to improve K-16 instruction.
  • Michael Wittmann, University of Maine—For foundational research into student learning of physics, pioneering work in K-12 teacher development, and leadership in building community for physics education researchers.

We also wish to thank those members of GPER who supplied support materials for each of the selected fellows. We look forward to the opportunity to recognize others in the physics education research community in the coming years.
