The Paradigms in Physics program began 20 years ago at Oregon State University.  In those two decades, we not only completely restructured the content trajectory for majors to be more aligned with how professionals think about the content, but we also designed many course activities which reflect not only our own education research but also results from other PER and DBER groups. In the past two years, we have chosen to revise and update the program to reflect new research interests among department faculty and to allow us to incorporate holistic changes that could not be addressed iteratively.  Along the way, we have been documenting and studying our change process.  We will share insights from the change process about how to support faculty in collaboratively implementing curriculum reform based on education research.
