외국 과학문화교육의 면모
[GIREP-EPEC] 유롭물리교육연구모임 '09.8.17~21 영국
You are invited to register for the international conference for physics teachers, educators and researchers to be held at the University of Leicester, UK, August 17 - 21, 2009.The extended deadlines for early registration (29th May) and abstract submissions (22nd May) will enable more participants to take advantage of the reduced fees.
The conference is sponsored by the International Research Group on Physics Teaching (GIREP), Physics Education Division of the European Physical Society and will incorporate the Physics Higher Education Conference 2009.
The conference has the theme of Community and Cooperation and will bring together physics researchers and physics educators at all levels to encourage the exploration and exchange of ideas concerning new developments in teaching and new topics that might help to shape future curricula. The plenary talks reflect this by being divided into a physics frontiers strand and a physics education strand. The speakers in each strand emphasise the international nature of the conference, and include distinguished invitees from Mexico and the USA as well as several European speakers.
Frontiers of physics:
Ken Pounds (Leicester); X-ray astrophysics
Els de Wolf (Amsterdam); Neutrinos
Martina Knoop (Marseille); Spectroscopy of cold atoms
Steve Swithenby (Open University); Brain imaging
Developments in physics education:
Dean Zollman (Kansas State); Learning from video fragments of experienced teachers
Josip Slisko (Puebla) Repeated errors in physics textbooks and the culture of teaching
Elizabeth Swinbank (York) Physics in the real world: connecting physics to the wider community'
Erik Johansson (Stockholm) ATLAS Experiment: Outreach and Informal Education from the LHC
Phil Scott (Leeds); Role of the teacher in concept learning
Hans Niedderer; (Bremen); Student ownership in physics learning
Proposals are invited for oral presentations, workshops, posters and symposia. These should be submitted via the Abstract Submission Form on the conference website (http://www.physics.le.ac.uk/girep2009). The closing date for abstracts is now extended to 22nd May 2009.
University Halls of residence accommodation is still available for early registrations, but is expected to be oversubscribed in the near future.
