  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; Uppsala universitet.; [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

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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Urban Eriksson; Uppsala universitet.; Högskolan Kristianstad.; Högskolan Kristianstad.; [2014]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik; Astrometry; Astronomy Education Research; Disciplinary Discernment; Extrapolating three-dimensionality; Reading the Sky;

    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.
