About Miranda Rocksén

My research interest is to better understand the communication during teaching and learning, with a primary focus on the science subjects: biology, physics and chemistry. I work with analysing video-recordings made in classroom settings and in my research I seek to capture, map and better understand specific aspects of this interaction, for example communicative strategies, structures and patterns of activity.

I teach in various courses for becoming teachers, mostly under the teaching and learning of science.

Currently, I work in two research projects. ÄMNOS, which is a research collaboration with a pre-scool and school, aiming for developing models for teaching topics in the natural sciences. The project is part of ULF - Pilot operation on practise-oriented school research. In the second project is about issues of sustainability in science and technology teacher education. This is a research collaboration between universitites in Sweden and South Africa financially supported by STINT, The Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education; VR, The Swedish Research Council and Forte, Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare.
