Time and place: May 3, 2021May 7, 2021, Oslo

The scientific program will include invited talks, selected oral contributions from submitted abstracts, and poster presentations, covering the following topics:

  • Nuclear level density
  • Gamma-ray strength function
  • Phase transitions in mesoscopic systems
  • Applications in astrophysics and reactor physics
  • Other related topics

As in previous Oslo Workshops, the program will allow ample time for discussions. The list of speakers and a detailed program will be posted on the conference website and will be included in the next circular in early April 2021. Previous workshops: 2019, 2017, 2015, 2013, 2011, 2009, 2007

It would be a mistake to assume that students have learned the thing you just presented to them. Formative assessment is thus concerned with informing both the teacher and the student about how much students understand about a topic, and discover any misunderstandings.

The seminar will be in Norwegian: "Vi presenterer en modell for kompetanseheving i realfaglig programmering for lærere. Modellen tar for seg opplæring i programmering på fagenes premisser, og vi ser på hvordan en slik modell kan brukes for lærere i høyere utdanning."

Time: Mar. 1, 2021Mar. 31, 2021

Most of you have now spent the last three semesters working on one of the biggest projects of your life so far: your master thesis project. In collaboration with KURT, we want to give you the chance to join a workshop that will give you a space to learn how to create your master thesis.

Computational thinking are by some defined as the capability to resolve problems algorithmically and logically, including skills related to representing, organizing and identifying patterns in data. This may be seen as leaning in a direction of discrete and observable processes. The Norwegian translation to "algoritmisk tenkning" can be read even clearer in the direction of defining explicit, deterministic instructions to achieve a well understood outcome. At the same time, computational thinking is not only promoted as a means to allow the development of concrete code/algorithms, but also as a way of thinking constructively about phenomena in a variety of fields. And it is clearly not the case that all phenomena in nature and society only involve discrete, directly observed entities - to the contrary, many relations and processes we may be interested in are continuous and probabilistic in their nature, where we have to constructively relate to risks, uncertainties and underlying patterns. An interesting question is whether the ability to devise algorithms to solve well defined problems and the ability to relate constructively to questions in an uncertain world should be seen as two aspects of the same skillset, or as separate skills that are cultivated through separate learning experiences.
