EPS Study of the implementation of Bologna reforms in physics
This study is an analysis of the implementation of Bologna reform goals in European universities at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral level. The studies analysed programmes in physics at 129 universities in 24 Bologna signatory countries. The analysis comprised two steps: (a) an online questionnaire; and (b) an analysis of curricula on the basis of printed or electronic material supplied by programme coordinators.
The project was coordinated by the EPS and financed by the European Commission, DG Education and Culture. 24 EPS Member Societies participated in the project.
The results of the study are reported at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels.
A position paper, developed by the EPS Physics Education Division and approved in June 2012, is intended to bring to public attention certain key points affecting the present state and future development of European physics education:
- physics education in schools and universities,
- physics education as a research field,
- lifelong learning and public outreach.
