Dahlin, Bo
Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v43 n2 p191-207 Jun 1999
Studied how understanding arises through interviews with 30 first-year university students. Found three main categories of conceptions: (1) experience; (2) mental construction; and (3) merging with reality. Relates results to constructivist models of learning and other phenomenographic studies of conceptions of understanding. (SLD)
