Studying motivation in the science classroom
2016 (English)In: Narratives of doctoral studies in science education: making the transition from educational practitioner to researcher / [ed] Shirley Simon, Christina Ottander, and Ilka Parchmann, Routledge, 2016, 56-67 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
I started my PhD with a theoretical approach that I increasingly had issues with. This chapter describes my search for a successful theoretical approach to motivation in the science classroom as a practitioner-researcher. I describe what problems I encountered and how these allowed me to narrow down my initial questions to those of greater relevance from a teacher- and classroom perspective. The chapter concludes with the new direction I chose for researching motivation in the science classroom during the second half of my PhD studies.
