Teaching Physics: Figuring Out What Works
E.F. Redish, and R.N. Steinberg 1999 Physics Today. v52(1), p24-30

The authors assert that physics education research, a growing subfield of physics, helps educators understand what students learn in physics courses and how to make sense of what physics students do in a way that will help instructors improve their courses. Examples of physics education research investigations are provided and ways to improve instruction are discussed.
