Symposium “Learning by Doing: Experiments and Instruments in the History

of Science Teaching”

The international symposium ‘Learning by doing: Experiments and

Instruments in the History of Science Teaching’ will take place on 4-5

April 2009 at the University of Regensburg (Ratisbon) in Germany. This

symposium attempts to start the discussion in a field that has

frequently been considered as being relevant in the formation of

scientists, however, has not yet obtained significant scholarly

attention. The 14 papers that will be presented during the symposium

will serve as starting point for a broader discussion. The program as

well as the complete announcement can be found at:

There is no participation fee. We ask participants to register until 20

March 2009.
