Investigating student ownership of projects in an upper-division physics lab course
written by Jacob T. Stanley, Dimitri R. Dounas-Frazer, Laura Kiepura, and H. J. Lewandowski
The development of students' sense of ownership of their work is recognized by many lab instructors to be an important outcome of lab courses. However, the way ownership manifests, as well as how it is developed, has not been a focus of study within the physics education research community. As a first step toward understanding what ownership looks like in this context, we are studying students' ownership of their projects in two upper-division optics courses, in which ownership is an explicit learning goal. We utilized data from the Project Ownership Survey (POS), as well as student interviews that focus on their interests, challenges, and memorable moments. The results of the POS were conflicted-one portion of the survey indicated high ownership while those questions pertaining to student affect indicated otherwise. However, analysis of our interviews corroborated that students were experiencing several aspects of ownership, but the nature of their affective response was complex and dynamic.
