  1. 1. Complexity Theory and Physics Education Research The Case of Student Retention in Physics and Related Degree Programmes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jonas Forsman; Cedric Linder; Ismo Koponen; [2015]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physics Education Research; Complexity Theory; Student Retention; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : This thesis explores the use of complexity theory in Physics Education Research as a way to examine the issue of student retention (a university’s ability to retain its students). University physics education is viewed through the concepts of nestedness and networked interactions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Reasoning with thermal cameras Framing and meaning-making in naturalistic settings in higher education

    University dissertation from Uppsala

    Author : Robin Samuelsson; Jesper Haglund; Maja Elmgren; Cedric Linder; Tor Nilsson; [2020]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physics Education Research; IR cameras; thermal cameras; thermodynamics; phase transition; heat transfer; Resources framework; Social semiotics; teacher education; chemistry education; visualization; Fysikdidaktik; kemididaktik; värmekamera; lärarutbildning; termodynamik; fasövergång; lärandesekvens; Socialsemiotik; Resursramverket; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : In this Licentiate thesis, framed by the Resources framework and Social semiotics, I explore how students and instructors, investigating thermal phenomena with IR cameras, come to conceptually and epistemologically frame the naturalistic settings they participate in. Additionally, I look at how they productively employ resources , what barriers they encounter while reasoning about the thermal phenomena and how the semiotic resources of the IR camera relate to the framing and resources employed in their investigations.

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tom W. Adawi; Jon Ogborn; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physics; M-theory; p-branes; supersymmetry; duality; heat and temperature; phenomenography; context; Physics Education Research; Fysik; Fysikens didaktik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik; Materiefysik; Physics of Matter; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with research in both physics and physics education, and is divided into two parts.Part IString theory has been the leading candidate over the past few years for a theory that unifies all the fundamental forces of nature. READ MORE

  4. 4. Explorations of University Physics in Abstract Contexts From de Sitter Space to Learning Space

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Daniel Domert; Cedric Linder; Ulf Danielsson; Duncan Fraser; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physics; phenomenography; cosmology; de Sitter space; quantum mechanics; conceptual understanding; epistemology; physics equations; Fysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : This is a thesis which contributes to research in two different fields: theoretical physics and physics education research. The common link between these two research areas is that both involve explorations of abstract physics and mathematical representations, but from different perspectives. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reading the Sky From Starspots to Spotting Stars

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Urban Eriksson; Cedric Linder; John Airey; Andreas Redfors; Edward E. Prather; [2014]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Astrometry; Astronomy Education Research; Disciplinary Discernment; Extrapolating three-dimensionality; Reading the Sky; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : This thesis encompasses two research fields in astronomy: astrometry and astronomy education and they are discussed in two parts. These parts represent two sides of a coin; astrometry, which is about constructing 3D representations of the Universe, and AER, where for this thesis, the goal is to investigate university students’ and lecturers’ disciplinary discernment vis-à-vis the structure of the Universe and extrapolating three-dimensionality.
