Intended learning outcomes *
On completion of the course, the student is expected to have the ability to independently
- formulate a scientific idea for an investigation linked to educational sciences related to teaching of physics, chemistry, technology or mathematics
- use relevant knowledge and skills that have been acquired during the education and make suitable choices of scientific methods and justify these
- within given frames, also with limited information, be able to analyse and discuss complex issues and handle larger problems at second cycle level within the teaching area
- reflect on, evaluate and critically review the scientific results one's work and that of others
- formulate relevant and justified conclusions with reference to earlier research
- reflect on recently acquired knowledge in relation to both the task as teacher and earlier education and professional or vocational experiences
- document and present work for given target group with high set requirements of structure formalities and language
- identify the need for additional knowledge and continuously develop skills
The course includes an independent formulation and completion of a project and its documentation. This implies choosing, collecting materials in a systematic way, analysing and processing an issue with scientific methodology, and presenting the work. The work should display the ability to methodologically reflect on knowledge that is related to the future work.
Supervisor is appointed by KTH.
