The Variety in Chemistry Education (ViCE) and Physics Higher
Education Conference (PHEC) meetings have for many years been the principal
conferences in Chemistry and Physics education at tertiary level in the UK.
They provide opportunities to present curriculum developments and research
investigations and to share best practices within the discipline. After many
successful years being organised and run by the HEA UK Physical Sciences
Centre, the 2012-2014 conferences were successfully combined to form a joint
meeting, a trend which is continuing this year on the 20th-21st August at the
University of Nottingham.
Never been before?
These meetings are friendly and informal, and are very
accessible for people just starting out in educational development and
research. If you haven't done this sort of thing before, or are just curious,
why not come along and see what is happening. People are always happy to share
their experiences and discuss ideas.
