This event has been postponed due to the COVID lockdown. It will be re-scheduled with the same speaker at the same venue, probably in early Term 3. The Vicphysics Teachers’ Network invites physics teachers and others interested in physics education to gather in an informal setting for a series of dinners, each with a guest speaker. The guest speakers will address diverse topics touching on curriculum, pedagogy and the discipline itself. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in discussion and network with colleagues over dinner.
The first occasion will be on Wednesday, 9th June at the Auburn Hotel at 85 Auburn Rd, Hawthorn starting at 6:00pm.
The speaker will be Dr Victoria Millar from the Graduate School of Education at the University of Melbourne. Topic: What is the role of physics education and how does that determine the elements of a physics curriculum? This is particularly opportune as VCAA moves into the consultation phase later this year for the study design to be implemented in 2023.
Dr Millar is a senior lecturer in the Graduate School of Education and has been at the University since 2011. Prior to that she taught Physics in schools in Victoria. Her research interests are in physics and science education, particularly science participation, curriculum and interdisciplinarity.
