Welcome to Theories, Methods and Analysis in STEM Educational Research


The course intends to bring together students in the areas of educational research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics education to work in depth with the design of their projects through the discussion of the relationship between theories, methods and analysis of data. An overview of the new trends and possibilities for research in these areas will be presented, and the students will have a chance of working on their own project as well as of expanding their knowledge on the newer trends in these fields.

Prerequisites: None

Teaching methods: Lecturers and students will be drawing on their own research. The course follows a workshop format where hands-on sessions will be facilitated for the students to examine different aspects of their project design. The course combines presentations by the lecturers, individual work, and group discussions.

Participants are also requested to read some basic material as preparation.

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
