Physics Teachers


WCPE 2016 Welcomes Physics teachers On behalf of the organizing committee of The World Conference on Physics Education and participating organizations I would like to welcome physics teachers to São Paulo.

The WCPE 2016 will be held with participation of researchers and teachers from around the world. At all levels of education, problems, solutions and success stories, as they pertain to physics education, will be shared and discussed among stakeholders, such as policy makers, teachers, university instructors and researchers. At the core of the conference lies meeting and interacting with colleagues and new ideas to improve teaching and learning. We wish to have a deeper understanding of learners and learning, teachers and teaching, physics as a branch of science and physical knowledge, and teaching environments with the overall goal being to reach and attain the state of the art knowledge and skills necessary to be able to teach physics successfully in our classrooms.

Please join us in São Paulo at the WCPE 2016 during the third week of July to help each other to achieve this vision. Best regards.

Nobuko Ueta, Guaraciaba Tetzner, Armando Tagiku and Guilherme Brockington
