About Jörgen Stenlund

In my research, I have focused on visual learning and communication with regard to natural sciences. In the most recent project I participated in “Challenging Threshold Concepts in Life Science ”, the possibilities to enhance understanding of threshold concepts through visualizations in an evolutionary context was investigated. Visualization of time scales was my focus in that project.

I am currently a PhD student with a particular reseach interest in visualizations for teaching and learning science. I am affiliated to the group at Linköping University dedicated to visual learning and communication.

As a teacher educator, I have taught many categories of students from preschool teachers  to  upper secondary teachers with a focus on didactics in natural sciences.
