At the invitation of Wynne Harlen (UK), member of the IAP-SEP Global Council and Purkwa Prize laureate 2009, an international team including several members of the Global Council met in 2010 to prepare a book on Principles and big ideas in science education.
Several of the authors of the book (D. Bell, R. Deves, H. Dyasi, G Fernandez de la Garza, P Léna, R Millar, M Reiss, P Rowell, Wei Yu) are active contributors to the IAP Global Science Education Program.
