1. Trainee teacher identities in the discourses of physics teacher education : Going against the flow of university physics
Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates what is involved in being recognized as a legitimate physics teacher-to-be in a Swedish physics teacher programme. Drawing on in-depth, qualitative interviews with 17 physics teacher educators and 17 trainee physics teachers, this thesis sees learning to become a physics teacher as a process of performing professional identities.

Sammanfattning : We are constantly struggling to understand how nature works, trying to identify recurrent events and looking for analogies and relations between objects or individuals. Knowing patterns of behavior is powerful and fundamental for survival of any species. LÄS MER
3. Complexity Theory and Physics Education Research : The Case of Student Retention in Physics and Related Degree Programmes
Sammanfattning : This thesis explores the use of complexity theory in Physics Education Research as a way to examine the issue of student retention (a university’s ability to retain its students). University physics education is viewed through the concepts of nestedness and networked interactions. LÄS MER
4. Uniformity in physics courses and student diversity : A study of learning to participate in physics
Sammanfattning : This licentiate thesis describes an investigation of participation and achievement in undergraduate physics courses with a discourse analytical lens. Issues of unequal participation have been a growing concern for the physics education research community. LÄS MER
5. The formation of successful physics students : Discourse and identity perspectives on university physics
Sammanfattning : In university physics education, unequal student participation has always been an issue. An example is the fact that men constitute 70–80% of the student body in most countries. LÄS MER
