  1. 1. Knowledge, Value and Personal experience : Upper secondary students' resources of supporting reasons when arguing socioscientific issues

    Author : Nina Christenson; Hans-Olof Höglund; Shu-Nu Chang Rundgren; Lars Nyberg; Anders Arnqvist; Jenny Lewis; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; socioscientific issues; informal agumentation; SEE-SEP model; Subject didactics; Ämnesdidaktik; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on upper secondary students’ use of resources in their supporting reasons when arguing socioscientific issues (SSIs). The skills of argumentation have been emphasized in science education during the past decades and SSIs are proven a good context for learners to enhance skills of argumentation and achieve the goal of scientific literacy.

  2. 2. Contextualising studies in higher education : First-year experiences of studying and learning in engineering

    Author : Max Scheja; Noel Entwistle; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Contextualisation of studies; Engineering education; First-year experiences; Intentional analysis; Learning in higher education; Education; Pedagogik; Subject didactics; Ämnesdidaktik;

    Abstract : The study aims at investigating students’ first-year experiences of studying and learning in tertiary engineering education. At the end of their first year 86 Swedish undergraduates of electrical engineering and computer science at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm were asked to reflect in writing on the conditions for studying and learning as they perceived them.

  3. 3. Computational problem solving in university physics education : Students’ beliefs, knowledge, and motivation

    Author : Madelen Bodin; Mikael Winberg; Diane Grayson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; physics education; computational physics; simulation; beliefs; motivation; mental models; network analysis; didactics of physics; fysikdidaktik;

    Abstract : Solving physics problem in university physics education with a computational approach requires knowledge and skills in several domains, for example, physics, mathematics, programming, and modelling. These competences are in turn related to students' beliefs about these domains as well as about learning, and their motivation to learn. READ MORE

  4. 4. Group work and physics : characteristics, learning possibilities and patterns of interaction

    Author : Maria Berge; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; group work; engineering education; higher education; physics education; science education; multi-theoretic perspective; phenomenography; variation theory; positioning theory; conversation analysis;

    Abstract : This thesis explores group work in physics at university level. The guiding researchinterest is what happens in the students’ interactions during such (instructional)activities, focusing both on the physics content and group dynamics. READ MORE

  5. 5. Assessing Scientific Literacy as Participation in Civic Practices : Affordances and constraints for developing a practice for authentic classroom assessment of argumentation, source critique and decision-making

    Author : Jens Anker-Hansen; Maria Andrée; Per-Olof Wickman; Aik Ling Tan; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; scientific literacy; assessment; authentic; communities of practice; expansive learning; argumentation; peer assessment; moderation meetings; naturvetenskapsämnenas didaktik; Science Education;

    Abstract : This thesis takes a departure from a view of scientific literacy as situated in participation in civic practices. From such a view, it becomes problematic to assess scientific literacy through decontextualised test items only dealing with single aspects of participation in contexts concerned with science.
