Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Epistemology
  • Law
  • Education

Mathematics education, Pedagogy, Science education, Epistemology and Praxis are his primary areas of study. As a part of the same scientific family, Wolff-Michael Roth mostly works in the field of Mathematics education, focusing on Context and, on occasion, Meaningful learning. The Pedagogy study which covers Perspective that intersects with Construct.

His Science education research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Concept learning, Educational research, Curriculum and Sociology of scientific knowledge. His Epistemology research includes themes of Cognition and Learning theory. His Praxis research focuses on Activity theory and how it relates to Education theory.

His most cited work include:

  • “Vygotsky’s Neglected Legacy”: Cultural-Historical Activity Theory: (720 citations)
  • Science education as/for participation in the community (325 citations)
  • Gestures: Their Role in Teaching and Learning: (320 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Wolff-Michael Roth mainly focuses on Epistemology, Science education, Mathematics education, Pedagogy and Perspective. His Epistemology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cognition and Activity theory. His study in Science education is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sociology of Education, Higher education and Learning sciences.

His work on Mathematics education is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Curriculum. The Pedagogy study combines topics in areas such as Context, Praxis and Ethnography. His research combines Social science education and Science, technology, society and environment education.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Epistemology (29.89%)
  • Science education (27.68%)
  • Mathematics education (27.31%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Epistemology (29.89%)
  • Mathematics education (27.31%)
  • Pedagogy (23.49%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Wolff-Michael Roth focuses on Epistemology, Mathematics education, Pedagogy, Perspective and Cognition. Wolff-Michael Roth combines subjects such as Educational psychology, Science education, Sign and Focus with his study of Epistemology. Wolff-Michael Roth has researched Science education in several fields, including Sociology of Education, Teaching method and Dialogical self.

Wolff-Michael Roth interconnects Semiotics and Curriculum in the investigation of issues within Mathematics education. His Pedagogy research incorporates elements of Praxis and Education theory. His Perspective research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Social psychology and Affect.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Spielraum and Teaching (45 citations)
  • From I-Awareness to We-Awareness in CSCW (35 citations)
  • Enhancing Primary School Students' Knowledge about Global Warming and Environmental Attitude Using Climate Change Activities (33 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Law
  • Epistemology
  • Education

His primary scientific interests are in Mathematics education, Epistemology, Pedagogy, Applied psychology and Cognition. His research on Mathematics education frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Curriculum. His work deals with themes such as Analysis of covariance, Science education, Semi-structured interview, Environmental education and Logical reasoning, which intersect with Curriculum.

His work in the fields of Epistemology, such as Phenomenology, intersects with other areas such as Computer-supported cooperative work. He has included themes like Control, Craft, Argumentative and Critical psychology in his Pedagogy study. Wolff-Michael Roth works mostly in the field of Perspective, limiting it down to concerns involving Intellect and, occasionally, Educational research.
