  1. 1. Wicked Problems in Engineering Education : Preparing Future Engineers to Work for Sustainability

    Author : Johanna Lönngren; Magdalena Svanström; Åke Ingerman; Tom Adawi; John Holmberg; Marie Paretti; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; wicked problem; engineering education; sustainability; phenomenography; assessment; rubric; design-based research; action research; perspective shift; ill-structured problems; problem-solving; didactics of natural science; naturvetenskapens didaktik; wicked problems;

    Abstract : Most engineering education today does not adequately prepare students to contribute to sustainability. For example, engineering students often do not learn how to address complex and ill-structured sustainability problems that involve different stakeholders, value conflicts,and uncertainty; such problems are also called wicked problems.

  2. 2. Engineering Students' Ways of Relating to Wicked Sustainability Problems

    Author : Johanna Lönngren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Wicked sustainability problems; Engineering students; Engineering education; Complexity; Perspective; Phenomenography; Sustainable development;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis constitutes a part of a larger research effort that aims to provide a theoretical framework for understanding and working with engineering students’ ways of relating to wicked sustainability problems (WSPs) on the basis of conceptual, empirical, and practical considerations. Thus, the project aims to contribute to an understanding of how engineering education can support students in developing the capabilities that they need to actively participate in discussions about sustainable development and to constructively deal with WSPs.

  3. 3. Students' understandings of multiplication

    Author : Kerstin Larsson; Kerstin Pettersson; Paul Andrews; Lieven Verschaffel; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Multiplication; students’ understanding; connections; multiplicative reasoning; models for multiplication; calculations; arithmetical properties; Mathematics Education; matematikämnets didaktik;

    Abstract : Multiplicative reasoning permeates many mathematical topics, for example fractions and functions. Hence there is consensus on the importance of acquiring multiplicative reasoning. READ MORE

  4. 4. Psychosocial adjustment problems : Individual and acculturation differences

    Author : Marie Väfors Fritz; Britt af Klinteberg; Andries Korebrits; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; personality; antisocial behavior; violence; alcohol; culture; socialization; acculturation; Psychology; Psykologi; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses individual and environmental risk factors in the development of adjustment problems and antisocial behaviour. Namely, temperament and character, anxiety, psychopathic-like traits, antisocial attitudes, alcohol use, and parental rearing strategies are explored as risk factors for behaviour problems in childhood, adolescence and adulthood.

  5. 5. Miniprojects and Context Rich Problems : Case studies with qualitative analysis of motivation, learner ownership and competence in small group work in physics

    Author : Margareta Enghag; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Social sciences; context rich problems; CRP; mini projects; MP; physics in upper secondary school; Students’ ownership of learning; SOL; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Ämnesdidaktik; Subject Didactics; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis reports case studies of students working with context rich problems (CRP) and mini projects (MP) in physics in an upper secondary school class and in a physics teacher education class at university. The students report a big shift from physics in secondary school as fun and easy, to physics in upper secondary school as boring, difficult and with lack of time for reflections and physics talking, but they also found physics as interesting in itself.
