What is TalkPhysics?

TalkPhysics is a digital space for discussing ideas, sharing advice and discovering resources for teaching physics.

Why should you get involved?

If you’re a teacher, technician or trainer, TalkPhysics will connect you to over 9,500 education professionals who can provide support on a range of physics topics; from the latest on A-level practicals to interview lesson tips.

Whether you’re a specialist or non-specialist, the TalkPhysics forum enables you to ask questions – without risk or judgement – and access the expertise of those involved in teaching physics.

You can contribute to conversations about curriculum developments, share your experiences and stay up-to-date with the latest news in physics education.
