Seminars and Journal Club
Over the past few years we have welcomed a number of wonderful speakers to the Department to discuss various issues relating to Physics Education Research - see below for a list of previous speakers. We also have hosted an international workshop on Physics Teaching Labs and organise an internal Teaching Labs special interest group.
We also host a monthly internal journal club which meets online to informally discuss the months' paper of choice.
Sign up to our mailing list to hear about upcoming seminars and journal clubs.
