Our working group is engaged in research across the full range of physics education.
We have two main areas of interest:
Development of new material for teaching and learning, including
- Modern sensors, new experiments in Physics Education - development of new material based on theoretical guidelines for teaching and learning
- designing multimedia learning with simulations
- visualizing learning contents - designing according to theoretical guidelines
- development of remote labs and learning environments.
Research on teaching and learning, including
- Analyzing how the design of a multimedia environment can effect Physics learning
- empirical studies about the effects of illustrations and visualizations and on learning, knowledge application, and knowledge transfer
- empirical investigation of learning scenarios that combine working with experiments in Physics and multimedia illustrations
- studies about perception of visual information, also using eye tracker analysis.
