Abstract [en]

For a long time, most research relating to science and engineering education has examined “misconceptions” about “single concepts”, despite the fact that one common objective in many subjects is “to learn relationships”. In this paper we introduce the notion of “a complex concept”, i.e. the idea of describing knowledge as a complex, a holistic unit, consisting of interdependent and interrelated “single concepts”. We describe how this conception could be used to identify both problems associated with learning as well potentials for learning. We will also relate the notion of a complex concept to the notion of threshold and key concepts.
