Dissertations & Master's theses
The goal of theses is to deepen the knowledge of problems concerning physics teaching and learning and to develop a research-based viewpoint to teaching.
Some theses are made as part of research projects, student works as a researcher within group and the thesis is directed to the research-based development of physics teacher education.
