Physics Education

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.

Prof. Dr. Raimund Girwidz

  • Development & evaluation of teaching units for physics classes
  • New media in the physics classroom
  • Student presentations & learning problems
