Abstract [en]

This paper continues previous efforts in understanding the problemsstudents face when learning concurrency. In this paper, weexplore students’ understanding of the subject using phenomenographyin order to gain insights that can aid in explaining the underlyingcauses for common student mistakes in concurrency, whichhas been studied in depth previously. Students’ experience of concurrencyand critical sections were analyzed using a phenomenographicstudy based on interviews with students attending one oftwo courses on concurrency and operating systems. We present6 categories describing students’ experience of concurrency, and4 categories describing students’ experience of critical sections inthis paper. Furthermore, these categories are related to previousresults, both to explore how misconceptions in the categores relateto student mistakes and to estimate how common it is for eachcategory to be discerned.
