  3. 3. Designing technical information Challenges regarding service engineers’ information-seeking behaviour

    University dissertation from Västerås : Mälardalen University

    Author : Jonatan Lundin; Mälardalens högskola.; [2015]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Innovation and Design; innovation och design;

    Abstract : There is a gap of knowledge regarding relevant aspects of users’ information-seekingbehaviours. The research presented in this thesis aims at gaining a deeper knowledge about such behaviours and discussing the consequences the behaviours may have on the design practice of technical communicators when designing technical information during product development.

  4. 4. Do excellent engineers approach their studies strategically? A quantitative study of students' approaches to learning in computer science education

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Maria Svedin; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Approaches to learning; computer science engineering education; Computing education research; online learning; Human-computer Interaction; Människa-datorinteraktion;

    Abstract : This thesis is about students’ approaches to learning (SAL) in computer science education. Since the initial development of SAL instruments and inventories in the 70’s, they have been used as a means to understand students’ approaches to learning better, as well as to measure and predict academic achievement (such as retention, grades and credits taken) and other correlating factors.
