Våren/hösten 2022

Introduction to Discipline-Based Education Research

This overview course is aimed at PhD students and researchers/teachers who have an interest in learning more about discipline-based education research but who currently have little or no experience in engaging in this kind of research. We will consider questions such as: What issues are addressed in DBER and how is it done? How do I read and interpret such research publications? What topics are researched within my scientific discipline?  What issues might be interesting for further research?

The course is made up of five, interactive half-day sessions, spread over a number of weeks. We will  introduce DBER, discuss theoretical underpinnings and methodologies for data collection and analysis, as well as the various research traditions and publication traditions for DBER in STEM areas. Participants will read and discuss DBER literature from their respective fields, and the course will provide a forum for collegiate discussions, including the relevance and applicability of this research to innovation and development of teaching and learning in the participants’ own disciplines and departments. See this flyer for more details and email your expression of interest

Hösten 2020/våren 2021

The Role of Theory in Discipline-Based Education Research

What is “theory” in the context of discipline-based education research (DBER)? How do theoretical frameworks and models affect how we design studies on teaching and learning, what questions can be asked, how data can be gathered, analysed and interpreted, and what evidence-based conclusions can be drawn? Does theory matter at all in DBER? [Spoiler alert: yes it does…]

Hösten 2019

Introduction to Qualitative Methods in Discipline-based Education Research

As a teacher, you might want to know e.g. how your teaching affected student learning, or how a teaching and learning activity influenced student engagement and their experience. Here, a qualitative research method (involving interviews, observational studies, analysis of text responses etc.) might be appropriate for answering your questions. This course will give you an introduction to qualitative research methods in education, especially within the context of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
