Preface

The 2009 GIREP-EPEC Conference was held in the University of Leicester, UK from 17th August to 21st August. The meeting also incorporated the annual UK Physics Higher Edu- cation Conference (PHEC). The plenary programme was organised by the European Physical Society and GIREP. Registration for the conference was administered by the Higher Education Academy Physical Sciences Centre. The Local Organising Committee was responsible for the conference administration and the programme of invited papers. The meeting received spon- sorship from the EPS, GIREP, the Physical Sciences Centre and the Physics Innovations Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (πCETL).

The conference attracted around 130 participants. There were 10 invited talks, 93 oral presen- tations and workshops and 27 poster presentations. All presenters were invited to contribute to the CD of the meeting which was distributed to all registered participants. A selected number of presenters (including those with posters) were invited, on the basis of the recommendation of chairs of sessions, to submit papers for peer review for these proceedings. Each paper was refereed independently by two referees. Those accepted are published here.
