About Us


Teaching Physics in relation to historical and cultural particularities guides the academic and training activities of our program and sets any macro-problem to be investigated. Training students in an environment where teachers continually discuss their concerns and developments around teaching Physics, implementing their relevant proposals, provides not just favorable conditions for students to be involved generating knowledge but a dialogue and respect culture for different concepts, methods, types and styles in the specific area of physics and, of course, taking into account the individual, humanistic and social issues. 

Program includes a contemporary knowledge notion, which impacts our scenario, supporting emphasis on cultural contexts and the increasingly meaningful role of mass media and information technology on educational and cultural processes. 





  • Address issues of teaching Physics and science at all levels and types in our nation by teacher and research training and design of curriculum proposals towards strengthening the academic community.  
  • Train teachers with advanced knowledge in Physics, who should be committed with the educational process of our Nation, and to train researchers on the teaching of the Physics and sciences.  
  • Generate and strength scenarios for reflection, analysis and knowledge construction related to education of Physics and science and its value in our cultural context. 
  • Promote development of training and research enterprises devoted to education and dissemination of Physics and science. 
  • Become teaching into a research area to find solutions of teaching science issues in our cultural scenario. 
  • Reinforce alternatives to build up academic communities in this area. 
  • Promote devices to mutual aid and exchange between different institutions involved in the education of Physics and science in our Nation. 
  • Promote devices to academic exchange between universities and international groups that approaches these challenges. 
  • Generate a friendly environment at the Department to smooth the way for communication, exchange and participation among their community members integrated with other institutional processes. 
  • Support strategies and proposals of organizational adaptation aimed at academic activities and institutional mission compliance.
