Networks in Physics Education Research

Activity: Talk or presentation typesLecture and oral contribution

Jesper Bruun - Lecturer

Network science offers a unique way of investigating how physics students learn physics. When combined with traditional physics education research, networks can be used to discern patterns and structures that are otherwise hidden in educational contexts. This talk will provide an overview of results from the growing number of especially Nordic researchers, with perspectives including cognitive ability, group interactions, and systemic patterns. Furthermore, the talk will elaborate on some of the ongoing efforts of using networks to understand how different aspects of physics education function and feed in to one another, and how educational change can be assessed.
