The rapid development of science and technology, the fast change in economy and society has always had a strong impact on Science Education. In a world tied together by the Information Superhighway all countries feel the impact. With the modernization of their social and economic situations, more of the developing countries have started to join with the developed countries in the process of expanding and improving the role of science education. Physics education in particular is "enjoying" a greater challenge than ever before. The role of teachers, their preparation and enthusiasm, has become particularly important in coping with the difficulties of bringing about real changes. A physics or science educator working in teacher education may be in a strong position to influence the practice in physics education. S/he can play a more effective role by having frequent communication with the practicing teachers.
The goal of the conference is to promote and develop the teacher's enthusiasm for changing their practice of physics education, to exchange ideas and practical experiences in solving the problems of teaching physics and to strengthen exchanges among physics teachers and educators.
