This summer we hosted the Oslo PER Summer Institute (OPSI) conference to connect with Physics and STEM education researchers from the University of Oslo, Michigan State University, Oregon State University, University of Colorado - Boulder, and other Norwegian and Scandinavian Universities.
Well done CCSE, facilitators and participants of the Nordic Regional Learning Assistant Workshop at UiO, June 09.-10. Two inspiring days where we learned about the Learning assistant model and how Learning assistants can contribute to student empowerment, belonging and learning.
How can we create technology that improve our lives, rather than drain them? 12 students form the university’s honours programs dedicated their springs to find an answer to this question. They worked interdisciplinarilty to create a concept within calm-tech. 8 students landed summer jobs, working to expand on their ideas, and learn how to monetize innovation.
Tor Ole Odden, Alessandro Marin and John L. Rudolph has used a machine‐learning algorithm from the field of natural language processing, to perform an automated literature review and classification of the corpus of work in Science Education. Read the article in the journal Science Education.
American student's often face different conditions that might increase or decrease the time it takes for them to get an undergraduate degree. These conditions include their background, the academic performance at university, and their integration into the social communities of the university they attend.
The Faculty of Mathematical and Natural Sciences at the University of Oslo (UiO) was recently granted a € 2.6 million MSCA COFUND project – TraCS, training in computational science – to fund 32 PhD-students in a program that provides young, talented researchers with the computational and data science skills needed to transform research and innovation across Europe.
Together with five strong partners, the University of Oslo has been awarded EU funding for a project that will generate new knowledge about transferable skills while also laying the foundation for a future university alliance.
Summer research positions to undergraduate and Master’s students who are interested in STEM Education and data analytics.
