Sune Pettersson

I teach courses in Physics and coordinate physics courses in the teacher programme.
I do research in Physics Education with a focus on group work in physics. 

Works at

Associate professor at Department of Physics
Fysikhuset, plan 3, Linneaus väg 20, FA317 Umeå universitet, 901 87 Umeå

I teach courses in physics, both bachelor and master courses. My main interest lies in the courses Solid State Physics and Solar cells. I also take care of students in the teacher programme that have chosen physics as one of their subjects.

I do research in Physics Education and I have supervised two students to their PhD. The research projects have focused on group work in physics either in laboratory work or in group discussions around context rich problems. Both upper secondary schools and universities have been studied.
