ChatPhysics Live 2022

Hello and welcome to ChatPhysics Live 2022!

We understand that not everyone is able to access live professional development opportunities, and so our speakers have kindly recorded professional presentations so you can watch them and discuss them at a time that is convenient to you. We have 15 videos to share with you over 5 weeks, with 3 being released at the beginning of each week and the chance to discuss these with the presenters themselves, and other viewers, during our usual Thursday #ChatPhysics slot on Twitter – Follow us to keep up with the chat!

Discussion between teachers is what ChatPhysics is all about so we would love for you to join in the discussion on Twitter using the hashtag #ChatPhysicsLive2022.

Thank you and enjoy the conference!
