"Teaching physics as it is done: A plea for qualitative methods "
ABSTRACT:

It is customary for young physicists, when entering their professional career, to be astonished by the huge difference between physics as it is done and physics as it is taught. The purpose is to show that teaching of physics as it is done is indeed possible and should be encouraged, despite the undeniable existence of didactical, epistemological and institutional obstacles.
