  • Developing tutorials for advanced physics students : processes and lessons learned 

    Baily, Charles; Dubson, Michael; Pollock, Steven (American Institute of Physics, 2014-02-01) - Conference item
    When education researchers describe newly developed curricular materials, they typically concentrate on the research base behind their design, and the efficacy of the final products, but do not highlight the initial stages ...
  • Education research as a route to collaborative work practice in HE 

    Sibbett, Lorna Rosemary (British Educational Research Association, 2011-08) - Journal article
  • Fair equality of opportunity in our actual world 

    Sachs, Benjamin (2017-01-08) - Journal article
    Fair equality of opportunity, a principle that governs the competition for desirable jobs, can seem irrelevant in our actual world, for two reasons. First, parents have broad liberty to raise their children as they see ...
  • Interpretation in quantum physics as hidden curriculum 

    Baily, Charles; Finkelstein, Noah D. (American Institute of Physics, 2010-09-24) - Conference item
    Prior research has demonstrated how the realist perspectives of classical physics students can translate into specific beliefs about quantum phenomena when taking an introductory modern physics course. Student beliefs ...
  • Motives and tensions in the release of open educational resources : the UKOER program 

    Falconer, Isobel Jessie; Littlejohn, Allison; McGill, Lou; Beetham, Helen (2016) - Journal article
    Open educational resources (OER) have been promoted as a path to universal education, supporting economic development and intercultural dialogue. However, to realise these benefits requires greater understanding of the ...
  • Quantum interpretations in modern physics instruction 

    Baily, Charles; Finkelstein, Noah D. (American Institute of Physics, 2009) - Conference item
    Just as expert physicists vary in their personal stances on interpretation in quantum mechanics, instructors hold different views on teaching interpretations of quantum phenomena in introductory modern physics courses. ...
  • Research-based course materials and assessments for upper-division electrodynamics (E&M II) 

    Baily, Charles; Dubson, Michael; Pollock, Steven J. (American Institute of Physics, 2013) - Conference item
    Favorable outcomes from ongoing research at the University of Colorado Boulder on student learning in junior-level electrostatics (E&M I) have led us to extend this work to upper-division electrodynamics (E&M II). We ...
  • Student perspectives in quantum physics 

    Baily, Charles; Finkelstein, Noah D. (American Institute of Physics, 2008) - Conference item
    Introductory courses in classical physics are promoting in students a realist perspective, made up in part by the belief that all physical properties of a system can be simultaneously specified, and thus determined at all ...
  • A taxonomy of virtual worlds usage in education 

    Duncan, Ishbel Mary Macdonald; Miller, Alan Henry David; Jiang, Shangyi (2012-11) - Journal article
    Virtual worlds are an important tool in modern education practices as well as providing socialisation, entertainment and a laboratory for collaborative work. This paper focuses on the uses of virtual worlds for education ...
  • Threshold concepts in theory and practice 

    Wright, A.L.; Hibbert, Paul Charles (2015-08-01) - Journal item
  • Virtual Reality for early education : a study 

    Fabola, Adeola; Miller, Alan (Springer, 2016) - Conference item
    This paper investigates the use of Virtual Reality (VR) as a tool for cultural heritage learning, using St Andrews Cathedral as the subject matter. As part of a module focused on local history, first year secondary school ...
  • Whom do children copy? Model-based biases in social learning 

    Wood, Lara Amanda Natalia; Kendal, Rachel; Flynn, Emma (2013-12) - Journal article
    This review investigates the presence of young children‟s model-based cultural transmission biases in social learning, arguing that such biases are adaptive and flexible. Section 1 offers five propositions regarding the ...
