UV9340 – New approaches to research on the teaching and learning of subjects

Course content

New technologies and more stringent requirements from scientific journals and other publication channels are forcing researchers in subject didactics to constantly rethink their research and to adopt new (combinations of) methods. In this course, we focus on recent developments in research methods in the teaching and learning of subjects. Among the topics that will be addressed are video analysis, triangulation/mixed methods, and new methods in writing research and quantitative analyses.

Learning outcome

The aim of the course is to provide insight into methods frequently used in current research on subject didactics and to discuss the opportunities and challenges that the different methodological approaches provide.
