GIREP is working on improving even more the quality of Teaching and Learning Physics with different initiatives with the goal to support the production of research results, studies and in general teaching proposals based on Physics Education Research (PER). Contributing to this goal are the excellent Conferences and Seminars organized more and more in collaboration with other bodies, the very active and qualified GTGs (GIREP Thematic Groups) instituted in the last years and the contracts with the Springer and IOP for Scopus / Web of Science indexed ISI books of selected papers.
Content research, design based research and integration of research with practice is characterizing the GIREP members and sympathizers. Teaching / Learning modern and contemporary physics is the main topic of the Budapest Conference in July 2019. GIREP have the dream to contribute in creating a community on Teaching / Learning Quantum Physics, starting from Budapest Conference.
We believe that the first step is the identification of those who have worked in this field and are available for discussions on that topic. We sent a letter on 25 January 2019 inviting interested colleagues to fill in a FORM to express their specific interest in working on this field. We received 45 applications including references and very interesting suggestions.
GIREP COMMUNITY ON TEACHING AND LEARNING QUANTUM PHYSICS
GIREP President Professor Marisa Michelini has launched an initiative to create an international community for teaching/learning quantum physics. During the 2019 Conference several individual talks were devoted to this subject, but the main event was a Symposium dealing with this important field, followed by a Discussion Workshop. Both were led by Prof. Michelini. The outcomes and the results of these will be published in the publications of the Conference (in the Springer Book and/or in the Conference Proceedings published by IOP electronically).
