  1. 1. The impact of visually demanding near work on neck/shoulder discomfort and trapezius muscle activity : Laboratory studies

    Author : Camilla Zetterberg; Hans O Richter; Mikael Forsman; Malin Josephson; Hanne Mari Schiøtz Thorud; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Accommodation; Asthenopia; Computer work; Eye-neck head stabilization; Muscle activity; Neck pain; Visual Attention; Visual demand; Visual ergonomics; Medical Science; Medicinsk vetenskap;

    Abstract : Introduction: Musculoskeletal discomfort in the neck and shoulders is common among workers performing visually demanding near work, e.g., on a computer screen, and sustained low-level muscle activity during such work can lead to work-related pain. READ MORE

  2. 2. Learning Physics Through Communication During Laboratory Work : An empirical study at upper secondary school

    Author : Jan Andersson; Margareta Enghag; Carl Angell; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Physics education; Laboratory Work; Inquiry; Communication; Discourse Analysis; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Laboratory work as a teaching and learning method is given prominence in the Swedish physics curriculum for upper secondary school. It is emphasised that students should be given opportunities to develop the ability to search for answers to questions, plan, conduct, interpret and present results. READ MORE

  3. 3. Expansive design for teachers : An activity theoretical approach to design and work integrated learning

    Author : Dennis Augustsson; Åsa Mäkitalo; Thomas Winman; Anne Edwards; Högskolan Väst; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Participatory design; Activity theory; Expansive learning; Teaching; Professional development; Education; Work Integrated Learning; Arbetsintegrerat lärande; Utbildningsvetenskap; Educational science;

    Abstract : This thesis explores how Participatory Design (PD) and Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT) can be combined and used as a theoretical framework and methodology in a professional development activity for teachers. A shift in the way we view teachers, from implementors to designers who actively construct, invent, and develop the practice of schooling also calls for changes in teacher education and professional development activities.

  4. 4. Perceived fatique related to work

    Author : Elizabeth Åhsberg; Mats Gillberg; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Perceived fatigue; work; physical; mental; circadian rhythms; scaling; gender; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : Perceived fatigue at work is important because it may be unpleasant for the individual, it may interfere with productivity, and prolonged fatigue without recovery may lead to work-related disorders. This thesis presents a comprehensive approach towards assessment of work-related perceived fatigue. READ MORE

  5. 5. Firefighters' physical work capacity

    Author : Ann-Sofie Lindberg; Christer Malm; Juha Oksa; Desiree Gavhed; Peter Krustrup; Umeå universitet; []
