Soft Matter has recently published online a series of Editorials by Samuel A. Safran, Tom Lubensky, Richard Jones, Edit Yerushalmi & Erich Sackmann that discuss the state of soft matter education across scientific fields.
Both the authors and Soft Matter strongly feel that this is an area of great importance for the soft matter community, and would very much like to encourage you all to share your thoughts, comments and opinions on this subject. As such we have created this blog as a central place to enable open discussion of the matter.
If you would like take part in this discussion please add your comments on this blog, and come back often to see what others have to say!
The Editorials are listed below and they have also been grouped together on the ‘Themed Issues’ tab of the Soft Matter website so that you can easily find them again in the future.
1. Soft matter education – Samuel A. Safran
2. Reflections on graduate education in soft matter – Tom C. Lubensky
3. The place of soft matter in undergraduate physics courses – Richard A. L. Jones
4. The challenge of teaching soft matter at the introductory level – Edit Yerushalmi
5. Activities and future challenges of soft matter and biological physics education – Erich Sackmann
