  1. 1. Learning Physics through Transduction : A Social Semiotic Approach

    Author : Trevor Stanton Volkwyn; John Airey; Bor Gregorcic; Cedric Linder; David Brookes; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Introductory physics; transduction; interactive engagement; social semiotics; representational competence; probeware; mathematical tools; 1-D kinematics; coordinate systems; magnetic field; pedagogical affordance; disciplinary affordance; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis details the introduction of the theoretical distinction between transformation and transduction to Physics Education Research. Transformation refers to the movement of meaning between semiotic resources within the same semiotic system (e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects of Art and Design on Orientation in Healthcare Architecture : A study of wayfinding and wayshowing in a Swedish hospital setting

    Author : Muna Ibrahim; Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; health-care architecture; hospital design; interior design; public art; wayfinding; orientation; affordance; familiarity; wayshowing; heterogeneity; temporality;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the role of interior design elements, especially artwork, in way-searchers’ wayfinding and orientation in hospital environments. The thesis considers the way-searcher’s background and the impact of cultural belonging, occupation, memories, aesthetic preferences, and language, and the influence that such factors might have on the perception of the hospital environment and its guiding elements.

  3. 3. Crowdability of Urban Space. : Ordinary rhythms of clustering and declustering and their architectural prerequisites

    Author : Sahar Alrabadi; Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; HUMANIORA; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; Crowdability; Urban design; Public Space; socio-materiality; public life; everyday life; social interaction; proxemics; Rhythm; Rhythm analysis; Affordance; Focused ethnography; Ethnography; visual ethnography; Architecture; crowds; collective space; ;

    Abstract : In the wake of densification and urbanisation, crowding has become an increasingly important issue for social sustainability in cities. This also affects urban design and the ways public spaces stimulate different kinds of crowding and clustering. READ MORE

  4. 4. Spatial analyses of people's experiences in urban landscapes

    Author : Karl Samuelsson; Stephan Barthel; S. Anders Brandt; Jon Norberg; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Urban planning; social-ecological system; human wellbeing; expe-riences; affordance; ecological psychology; resilience; spatial analysis; PPGIS; Stockholm; Stadsplanering; social-ekologiska system; välbefinnande; upple-velser; miljökvalité; ekologisk psykologi; resiliens; rumslig analys; medbor-gardeltagade; Stockholm; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Abstract : Limiting cities’ negative impact for global sustainability suggests compact city development. However, extensive and accessible urban nature is important for urban dwellers’ wellbeing. Aligning efforts to make cities locally and globally sustainable means resolving this conflict. READ MORE

  5. 5. Using a Social Semiotic Perspective to Inform the Teaching and Learning of Physics

    Author : Tobias Fredlund; Cedric Linder; David Wolfe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Social semiotics; semiotic resources; physics education research; interactive engagement; disciplinary affordance; disciplinary-relevant aspects; patterns of disciplinary-relevant aspects; the Variation Theory of Learning; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : This thesis examines meaning-making in three different areas of undergraduate physics: the refraction of light; electric circuits; and, electric potential and electric potential energy. In order to do this, a social semiotic perspective was constituted for the thesis to facilitate the analysis of meaning-making in terms of the semiotic resources that are typically used in the teaching and learning of physics.
