Jul 07, 2014 - Jul 12, 2014 in University of Palermo

We warmly invite you to participate in the GIREP-MPTL International Conference on Teaching/Learning Physics: Integrating Research into Practice to be held on July 7-12, 2014 at University of Palermo, Italy.  During the last few years, evidence based Physics Education Research provided results concerning the ways and strategies to improve student conceptual understanding, interest in Physics, epistemological awareness and insights for the construction of a scientific citizenship. However, Physics teaching practice seems resistant to adopting adapting these findings to their own situation and new research based curricula find difficulty in affirming and spread, both at school and university levels. We hope that our conference will offer an opportunity for in-depth discussions of this apparently wide-spread tension in order to find ways to do better.
