Conference proceedings “Teaching Physics Innovatively”
In August 2015, at Eötvös University (ELTE) in Budapest, the “Teaching Physics Innovatively” Conference (TPI-15) featured plenary presentations, paper sessions and a panel discussion about recent challenges in physics education. The event was attended by more than 100 participants from 18 countries, and dedicated to the encounter of teachers and scientists, mediators and promoters of Physics, who may jointly build bridges between researcher and society. In cooperation with the European project Promoting Attainment of Responsible Research and Innovation in Science Education (PARRISE), with project webpage http://www.parrise.eu/, special emphasis was placed on the pedagogical interpretation of socially relevant issues in physics education.
We are happy to announce that the proceedings of this conference (publisher: Graduate School for Physics, ELTE University, Budapest, editors: A. Király and T. Tél) is available now as an e-book, and can be downloaded from the website http://parrise.elte.hu/tpi-15
From the content:
Science centres and other informal learning opportunites,
Our cosmic environment,
Socially sensitive issues,
Multimedia and ICT,

Roundtable discussion about socially sensitive issues in physics education.
- Inquiry Based Science Education,
On the webpage http://parrise.elte.hu/tpi-15/slides.php the separate papers are also accessible with their conference abstracts and presentation slides, and a "forum" is associated to each paper. Comments are welcome until 1 November 2016, afterwards the final version of the Proceedings will be generated and printed, subsequently, as a book.
