Postdoc, Hendra Agustian, Department of Science Education, University of Copenhagen

Hendra has degrees in both Chemistry and Education, as well as research experience in curriculum design. His PhD focussed on students' learning in the laboratory, particularly concerning the role of pre-laboratory work. He also investigated their views of the nature of science. Prior to this project, he taught and tutored students at primary, secondary, and university levels, including in chemistry laboratories in Indonesia and the UK. In liaison with other researchers within the IQ-Lab, Hendra seeks to develop a pedagogical intervention aimed at addressing and integrating four domains of learning in the laboratory: cognitive, conative, affective, and epistemic. To different extents, he is also involved in WP2, WP3, and WP4.


Laura T. Finne

PhD Student, Laura Finne, Department of Pharmacy, University of Copenhagen

Laura has a background in Chemistry and Medicinal Chemistry besides teaching experience from a primary school through the graduate program Teach First Danmark. Her project will focus on WP3 and the students’ perspective on their learning experience in the laboratory.


Jonas Tarp Jørgensen

PhD Student, Jonas Tarp Jørgensen, Department of Science Education, University of Copenhagen

Jonas focuses on WP4 and will explore what happens to laboratory skills and competences, when students travel further in their pharmaceutical education. He has an educational background in biology and sports science and has taught these subjects in upper secondary school in Aasiaat, Greenland prior to commencing his project in IQ-Lab.


Maja I. Pedersen

Research Assistant, Maja Ingerslev Pedersen, Department of Science Education, University of Copenhagen

Maja has, due to her background in sociology, experience with social research methods, especially interview studies. She is employed as a research assistant and works part-time at the IQ-Lab project. Besides her involvement in WP2 and WP3, she is also in charge of the Danish literature review and the organization of the SIG meetings.
