Ongoing Research

Our main areas of interest explore the teaching and learning of physics from interrelated perspectives such as: ​

The Role of Representations in Physics Education
How can the different semiotic resource-systems we use in physics be coordinated and understood in order to improve the teaching and learning of physics?

Understanding Physical Phenomena
How do students understand physical phenomena and how can learning experiences be constructed to facilitate the intended understanding?

Complexity Thinking in Physics Education Research
How can complex processes of teaching and learning be modelled and understood?

Understanding Physics Teaching and Physics Teacher Education in New Ways
How can the experience of physics teaching and physics teacher education be improved?
