Introduction to research-based teaching in physics (Teaching Physics with the Physics Suite)
Teaching Physics with the Physics Suite is a book written by Joe Redish, one of the early leaders of physics education research. It was published in 2003 and still provides one of the best introductions to research-based teaching in physics. You can download the entire book in pdf format for free here on PhysPort, or buy it from Wiley. This book provides an introduction what research in physics education and cognitive science says about how to support students in learning physics more effectively, and an overview of methods that can help you improve your physics teaching. While the book is ostensibly about a particular set of materials called the Physics Suite, the advice in it is relevant and useful independent of whether you are using any of these particular materials.
