    Abstract : This thesis addresses a range of questions about normativity, broadly understood. Recurring themes include (i) the idea of normative ‘action-guidance’, and the connection between normativity and motivational states, (ii) the possibility of normative knowledge and its role in deliberation, and (iii) the question of whether (and if so, how) normative concepts can themselves be evaluated.

    Abstract : The integration of mobile and sensor technologies, and the design and implementation of different web-enabled visualizations to support inquiry learning in different educational scenarios encompass the main research efforts carried out in this thesis. These challenges are addressed from the perspectives of mobile and web engineering, visualization and technology-enhanced learning (TEL). READ MORE

  3. 3. Circling Concepts : A Critical Archaeological Analysis of the Notion of Stone Circles as Sami Offering Sites

    Author : Marte Spangen; Anders Andrén; Bjørnar Olsen; Aleks Pluskowski; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Sami circular offering sites; northern Norway; Middle Ages; early modern period; history of archaeology; rituals; religion; osteoarchaeology; cultural heritage; authorised heritage discourse; neo-shamanism; rites and rights; socio-politics; emotional hegemony; materiality; arkeologi; Archaeology;

    Abstract : The thesis discusses a category of cultural heritage that has been labelled "Sami circular offering sites", aiming to establish some basic facts about their origin, distribution and use, as well as their cultural and socio-political context and influence. The stone enclosures in question have been interpreted as Sami offering sites since the mid-19th century, but a discourse analysis of the research history indicates that this may have been based on a scholarly hypothesis rather than ethnographic or archaeological evidence.

    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Biographies; class diagram; computer science education; computer science education research; computing concepts; concept map; content analysis; higher education; java interface; learning; object orientation; phenomenography; programming; role-play; software development; software profession; threshold concepts; variation theory; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot datavetenskapens didaktik; Computer Science with specialization in Computer Science Education Research;

    Abstract : Research has shown that there are gaps in knowledge between newly hired and experienced professionals and that some of these gaps are related to concepts, such as the concepts of object orientation. This problem, and the fact that most computer science majors want to work in the software industry, leads to questions regarding why these gaps exist and how students can be better prepared for their future careers.
