Abstract [en]

With more diversified studentgroups entering the university, thedevelopment and planning of coursesbecome more pedagogically challenging.In earlier studies, a validated tool, contentrepresentation (CoRe), has been usedin teacher education to help pre-serviceteachers identify and promote pedagogicalcontent knowledge in limited teachingsequences. In the present research the aimis to explore whether CoRe, when applied toan introductory university course in physics, can (i) promote the pedagogical contentknowledge of the course as a whole and (ii)serve as an operative tool to identify problematicareas or areas that need furtherdevelopment in the course. The CoRe toolis based on given questions to be answeredin relation to the “big ideas” of the course.In the present research, the questions havebeen answered by a lecturer and by usinga content analysis of the answers severalcategories of development could be identified.For a specific category, the tool alsoprovided information about what kind ofdevelopment was necessary. The conclusionis that CoRe has a potential to be ofservice at higher education level, it can beapplied to parts of a course as well as toa course as a whole, and it may provide auseful tool to help a lecturer in the developmentand planning of a course.
