The Annual Meeting for Teachers of Physics in Schools and Colleges
Thursday 6 June 2013
Rugby School, Rugby, Warwickshire, CV22 5DW
Each year the organising committee, working in co-operation with the education department of the Institute, organises a one-day meeting at Rugby School for teachers of physics in schools and colleges, and in teachers in training.
- Chair of the organising committee: Dr Andy Davies (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Secretary: Andy Clark (email@example.com)
Whilst most come from England and Wales, a few come from further afield and all are very welcome from independent and state schools and colleges alike.
The full conference fee is currently £35 per person (includes lunch and refreshments), with a discounted fee of £30 for IOP members / affiliated schools and a concessionary fee of £15 for NQTs, PGCE and GRTP trainees. A meeting notice with booking form will go out to schools from the Institute of Physics in the spring.
- Up to 200 physicists attend each year. The main purpose of these meetings is to bring together physics teachers from both the state and the independent sectors to learn about the latest developments in physics and physics education.
- Each year we have keynote lectures given by leading research physicists and by physics education experts.
- There are hands-on workshops where you can pick up new ideas and resources.
- We have open discussions where you can make your own opinions known and see how others are dealing with the latest issues and changes.
- We offer the chance for exchanging news and information via poster displays.
- The meeting also provides an opportunity for equipment suppliers, publishers and awarding bodies to demonstrate their new products.
