Cooperative Networks in Physics Education. Proceedings of the Inter-American Conference on Physics Education (Oaxtepec, Mexico, July 20-24, 1987).
Barojas, Jorge, Ed.
This conference on physics education was held to improve cooperative efforts in connection with 12 topics previously identified by a survey. A working group was organized in association with each of these topics with the hope of creating or reinforcing a network. Working groups included: network development procedures; graduate education and employment; cognitive sciences and the foundations of physics teaching; secondary physics teaching; teacher education; physics education research; textbooks; the use of microcomputers; non-formal education; physics laboratories; teaching modern physics; and technology. This proceedings contains the text of the 48 papers and five invited talks delivered at the conference, and a directory of those who participated. (CW)
