What is the Peer Workshop?
Mentorship in Discipline-Based Education Research
This asynchronous, online PEER workshop gives opportunities for faculty and graduate students in mathematics, physics and other disciplines to develop their own educational research practices while improving English usage. PEER supports emerging education researchers in developing their research interests into concrete questions, developing short- and long-term research plans, and making progress on advancing projects to publication.
Who will be attending?
PEER targets a broad diversity of experience and interest in Discipline-based Education Research (DBER). The workshop is appropriate for:
- Faculty not currently engaged in DBER but interested in learning about theories and methodologies for possible future research
- Current DBER researchers looking to build or broaden their network of collaborators and engage in generative discussions about existing and new projects
- Graduate students or postdoctoral researchers who want to learn more about DBER project management and building a successful research program
- Faculty at teaching-focused universities interested in using research methodology to improve or assess their teaching and/or publish in Scholarship of Teaching & Learning
- PEER-Kazakhstan 2021 is an online-only repository of materials for asynchronous, individual or group work. Workshops will include sessions on Research Design, Data and Analysis, Collaboration Ethics, Research Ethics and Productive Research Questions. Materials are available through the syllabus.
PEER-Rochester is sponsored by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
