From the Editor

Richard Steinberg, City College of New York

In this issue, I am happy to continue the tradition of highlighting Foundations and Frontiers of Physics Education Research conferences in the subsequent issue of this newsletter. This year, FFPER: Puget Sound was held in June in Diablo Washington and was organized by Krishna Chowdary (The Evergreen State College), Andrew Boudreaux (Western Washington University), Amy Robertson (Seattle Pacific University), and Abigail Daane (Seattle Pacific University). The conference is framed beautifully by Tim Stelzer and Andrew Boudreaux in this newsletter and represented well by articles of 3 of the plenary speakers, Michael Loverude, Cassandra Paul, and James Day.

As I continue to adjust to my role as editor, I encourage readers to reach out to me ( with any and all thoughts you may have. What parts of the newsletter do you find most valuable? Is there something that you would like to see changed? What would you like to see in future issues? All feedback is appreciated.
