What is MUSE?


The idea of MUSE (More Understanding with Simple Experiments) originated in the January 2008 meeting of EPS PED board.
Current MUSE members:
Andreas Mueller, Gorazd Planinšič, Zdenka Koupilova and Laurence Viennot.


Main goals of the MUSE project


To go beyond excitement by helping students to get more understanding from simple experiments
To propose teachers some approaches and means to be used in class practice thus enlarging the range of their choices.


Target audience of MUSE


In-service teachers
Pre-service teachers
Physics education and physics education research communities


Added Value in Education (AVE)

Comments on possible ways of fostering students' understanding
Discussion of naive ideas and reasoning strategies conflicting with physics knowledge
Spotlighting various viewpoints of the same phenomenon that may favour its links with contents not often presented in current teaching materials.
