  1. 1. Science Enacted in Everyday Life: Studies of On-line and Classroom Practice

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Miranda Rocksén; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; science education; science literacy; public engagement with science; science language; genre; learning; on-line communication; classroom research;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis contributes to the field of science education with two studies investigating science literacy in its practice in everyday life. The approach embrace a view on science learning as embedded in the context of situation, resulting in the study of two practices: on-line communication and science classroom. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Novice Programming Students' Learning of Concepts and Practise

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Anna Eckerdal; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Computer science education; computer science education research; object-oriented programming; novice students; phenomenography; variation theory; dimensions of variation; learning; higher education; concepts; practise; Ways of Thinking and Practising; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot datavetenskapens didaktik; Computer Science with specialization in Computer Science Education Research;

    Sammanfattning : Computer programming is a core area in computer science education that involves practical as well as conceptual learning goals. The literature in programming education reports however that novice students have great problems in their learning. These problems apply to concepts as well as to practise. LÄS MER

  3. 3. On the Road to a Software Profession Students’ Experiences of Concepts and Thresholds

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Jonas Boustedt; Högskolan i Gävle.; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Biographies; class diagram; computer science education; computer science education research; computing concepts; concept map; content analysis; higher education; java interface; learning; object orientation; phenomenography; programming; role-play; software development; software profession; threshold concepts; variation theory; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot datavetenskapens didaktik; Computer Science with specialization in Computer Science Education Research;

    Sammanfattning : Research has shown that there are gaps in knowledge between newly hired and experienced professionals and that some of these gaps are related to concepts, such as the concepts of object orientation. This problem, and the fact that most computer science majors want to work in the software industry, leads to questions regarding why these gaps exist and how students can be better prepared for their future careers.

  4. 4. Developing and Assessing Professional Competencies: a Pipe Dream? Experiences from an Open-Ended Group Project Learning Environment

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Mats Daniels; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Computing education research; engineering education research; computer science; open-ended group project; professional competencies; action research; educational research framework; learning; communities of practice; constructivism; conceptual change; threshold concepts; problem based learning; ill-structured problem solving; international student collaboration; constructive controversy; reflection; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot datavetenskapens didaktik; Computer Science with specialization in Computer Science Education Research;

    Sammanfattning : Professional competencies are explicitly identified in the primary learning outcomes for science and engineering degrees at many tertiary institutions.  Fulfillment of the requirements to equip our students with these skills, while formally acknowledged as important by all stakeholders, can be hard to demonstrate in practice.

  5. 5. Learning computer systems in a distributed project course The what, why, how and where

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Anders Berglund; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; computer science education; computer science education research; computer networking; computer systems; phenomenography; activity theory; learning; higher education; team collaboration; remote collaboration; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Education Subject didactics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Pedagogik Ämnesdidaktik; Computer Systems; Datorteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Senior university students taking an internationally distributed project course in computer systems find themselves in a complex learning situation. To understand how they experience computer systems and act in their learning situation, the what, the why, the how and the where of their learning have been studied from the students’ perspective.
