History of physics in science teacher training in Oldenburg. (English)
Sci. Educ. (Dordrecht) 9, No. 4, 399-402 (2000).
For several years Oldenburg University in Germany has offered a study program in History of Physics for physics teacher students. Some courses of the ordinary physics curriculum were modified with an emphasis on history and philosophy of science, and some lectures focussed on historical subjects were newly created. Moreover the candidates for final exams can choose a historical topic ā€’ usually centered on an experiment ā€’ as the subject of their exam paper. In the following article the courses are shortly described, some examples of the studentsā€™ achievements are presented, and the educational relevance is pointed out. Finally the experiences of the project so far are described and assessed. (Orig.)
