The Physics Education Research Group is an integral part of the Physics Department at Uppsala University. The activities of the group are centred principally around Higher Education and the interplays between student learning and the form and content of university physics and related engineering curricula and teaching. Typically this research draws on conceptual framing and theoretical perspectives that have factors such as epistemology, metacognition, language, gender, visualization, simulation, culture and worldview as important underpinning attributes. Physics and engineering students' experiences of learning, teaching and their environments, and their experienced culture, and values, prior education, and personal aspirations provide important constituents for our work.
