I received an interesting heads-up from my teaching economics newsgroup about a list of pedagogical papers by the Physics Education Research at Colorado group. This group includes Carl Wieman, Nobel Laureate who I’ve blogged about before.
The archive includes a wide variety of papers most of which seem applicable to most if not all fields. The paper that caught my attention was “The surprising impact of seat location on student performance.” You can see the abstract and link to the full paper at http://scitation.aip.org/vsearch/servlet/VerityServlet?KEY=PHTEAH&CURRENT=NO&ONLINE=YES&smode=strresults&sort=rel&maxdisp=25&threshold=0&pjournals=PHTEAH&pyears=2001%2C2000%2C1999&possible1=wieman&possible1zone=article&SMODE=strsearch&OUTLOG=NO&viewabs=PHTEAH&key=DISPLAY&docID=1&page=1&chapter=0
