PhD Thesis by Nikorn Rongbutsri: Students Using Online Collaborative Tools in Problem-Oriented Project-Based Learning

The research reveals the behaviour of students individually, and socially in their groups, in relation to their attitudes towards adoption of communication tools.

PhD Thesis by David Marco Carré Benzi: Towards a Cultural Psychology of Science: Economics and Economists in contemporary Chile
The present thesis looks to complement existing social studies of science with a cultural psychological perspective, which is sensitive to the personal nature of the scientific activity but also to the cultural conditions in which scientific knowledge is constructed, without subsuming any of these dimensions into the other. At the same time, it offers a novel perspective on the notorious role that economists have had in contemporary Chilean society, a topic that has been largely addressed as social and institutional.

PhD Thesis by Christian Ravn Haslam
This thesis addresses the concept of student-driven innovation from the perspective of vocational education. This is done by experimenting with interdisciplinary problem-based workshops as a tool for generating and applying innovation capacity. These workshops are adapted from university and university college level initiatives to learn how experience generated through use of these methods and principles can be applied within the vocational domain.
