ICIE Mojca

Prof. Dr. Mojca Čepič is a full professor for physics and physics education at the Faculty of Education, University of Ljubljana. Her research is focused to two rather different fields: the soft matter physics, especially theoretical physics of liquid crystals and to physics education. The link between the two is the development of new teaching methods and tools for introduction of liquid crystals to the classroom as one of the topics related to technology and phenomena met in everyday life (like LCD screens on mobile phones, TVs etc. ). Introduction of new topics into education is a new field in physics education research and opens new opportunities for gifted students motivated for science or allows for the detection of giftedness.

She is the head of the Institute of Science and Arts at the Faculty of Education, University of Ljubljana.
