Oral presentation on “Activities to address students’ alternative conceptions in elementary thermodynamics”

15. GIREP at Palermo, Italy in July 2014

GIREP is an international membership organization (founded in 1966), open to individuals with a concern to improve the teaching of physics —teachers and their supporters (researchers, coaches, curriculum developers). GIREP conducts annual conferences in the field of physics education. I attended the conference in 2014 at Palermo, Italy. I presented a poster on “Understanding first law of thermodynamics through activities”.

16. Annual Convention of Indian Association of Physics Teachers at Hyderabad, 2015

Oral presentations on

  1. “Understanding first law of thermodynamics through activities” and
  2. “Understanding thermal equilibrium through activities”

 17. WFPhC conferences:

The World Federation of Physics Competitions organizes regular activities around the globe such as a biannual congress. I attended two conferences.
