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

    Author : Jonas Forsman; Cedric Linder; Ismo Koponen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL 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

    Author : Robin Samuelsson; Jesper Haglund; Maja Elmgren; Cedric Linder; Tor Nilsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL 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.

  3. 3. Doing Physics - Doing Gender : An Exploration of Physics Students' Identity Constitution in the Context of Laboratory Work

    Author : Anna T Danielsson; Cedric Linder; Tora Holmberg; Boel Berner; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Learning; Higher Education; Science Education; Physics Education; Gender; Situated Learning; Physics; Fysik; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : In Sweden today women are greatly under-represented within university physics and the discipline of physics is also symbolically associated with men and masculinity. This motivates in-depth investigations of issues of physics, learning and gender. READ MORE

  4. 4. Science, Language, and Literacy : Case Studies of Learning in Swedish University Physics

    Author : John Airey; Cedric Linder; Roger Säljö; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Learning; Higher education; Bilingualism; Language choice; Science education; Scientific literacy; Bilingual scientific literacy; Disciplinary discourse; Discourse imitation; Semiotics; Physics Education Research; Physics; Fysik; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik; Science Education; Naturvetenskap med utbildningsvetenskaplig inriktning; Engelsk språkvetenskap; English; Fysik; Physics; Pedagogik och Utbildningsvetenskap; Pedagogics and Educational Sciences; Pedagogics; Pedagogik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents an investigation of undergraduate student learning with respect to physics lectures attended in English and Swedish. The work studies three connected areas: student learning patterns, bilingual scientific literacy and disciplinary discourse. READ MORE

  5. 5. From Branes to Brains : On M-theory and Understanding Thermodynamics

    Author : Tom W. Adawi; Jon Ogborn; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; M-theory; p-branes; supersymmetry; duality; heat and temperature; phenomenography; context; Physics Education Research; Fysik; Fysikens didaktik; Physics; 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
