    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; M-theory; p-branes; supersymmetry; duality; heat and temperature; phenomenography; context; Physics Education Research; Fysik; Fysikens didaktik; Physics; Fysik; Materiefysik; Physics of Matter; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with research in both physics and physics education, and is divided into two parts.Part IString theory has been the leading candidate over the past few years for a theory that unifies all the fundamental forces of nature. READ MORE

  2. 2. Reasoning with thermal cameras : Framing and meaning-making in naturalistic settings in higher education

    Author : Robin Samuelsson; Jesper Haglund; Maja Elmgren; Cedric Linder; Tor Nilsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Physics Education Research; IR cameras; thermal cameras; thermodynamics; phase transition; heat transfer; Resources framework; Social semiotics; teacher education; chemistry education; visualization; Fysikdidaktik; kemididaktik; värmekamera; lärarutbildning; termodynamik; fasövergång; lärandesekvens; Socialsemiotik; Resursramverket; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : In this Licentiate thesis, framed by the Resources framework and Social semiotics, I explore how students and instructors, investigating thermal phenomena with IR cameras, come to conceptually and epistemologically frame the naturalistic settings they participate in. Additionally, I look at how they productively employ resources , what barriers they encounter while reasoning about the thermal phenomena and how the semiotic resources of the IR camera relate to the framing and resources employed in their investigations.

  3. 3. Grading in physical education

    Author : Lena Svennberg; Karin Redelius; Jane Meckbach; Ann MacPhail; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; physical education; assessment; movement qualities; criterion referenced; standards-based grading; internalised grading; gut-feeling; equity; Bernstein; Repertory Grid; Samhällsvetenskap Humaniora; Social Sciences Humanities;

    Abstract : In the thesis the aim is to investigate different aspects of what teachers value when grading in Swedish physical education (PE) and to analyses how sociological background factors impact students’ grades. Grades in PE have included aspects other than those prescribed in the grading criteria, for instance motivation and effort. READ MORE

  4. 4. Science, Language, and Literacy : Case Studies of Learning in Swedish University Physics

    Abstract : This thesis presents an investigation of undergraduate student learning with respect to physics lectures attended in English and Swedish. The work studies three connected areas: student learning patterns, bilingual scientific literacy and disciplinary discourse. READ MORE

  5. 5. Friluftsliv in Swedish Physical Education – a Struggle of Values : Educational and Sociological Perspectives

    Author : Erik Backman; Håkan Larsson; Johan Arnegård; John Evans; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Friluftsliv; Physical Education; PETE; PE teacher student; PE teacher educator; curriculum; Bourdieu; Bernstein; Education; Pedagogik; utbildningsvetenskap med inriktning mot praktiska kunskapstraditioner; Educational Sciences in Arts and Professions; Samhällsvetenskap Humaniora; Social Sciences Humanities;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to examine some of the educational and sociological conditions underlying the production of teaching in friluftsliv within the Physical Education (PE) subject in Swedish compulsory school. Despite the value awarded to the Scandinavian outdoor practice friluftsliv, in both the national PE curriculum document and in Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) in Sweden, it does not seem to be thoroughly implemented in compulsory school teaching.
