SUPER Homepage

The Sydney University Physics Education Research (SUPER) Group was founded in 1992 to undertake physics education research (PER) in the School of Physics.

We are a group of physicists with common interests in the issues of teaching and student learning, offering staff and students high-quality teaching and learning opportunities and researching the complex ways in which people go about understanding physics.

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.

SUPER has an extensive and expanding research program and are always looking for new ideas, students and collaborations.

SUPER Group Manifesto

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.
