How we work

  • Our research includes the following areas:

    • Teaching and learning methods in professional educational programmes
    • Knowledge production and transitions in professional educational programmes and practice
    • Common grounds of research, development, innovation, and education
    • Implementation and transitions in change-processes
    • Youth education, vocational training and developing teachers’ skills 
    • Developing professional identities.
  • We contribute to research related to the professions for which we educate candidates. As such, we cooperate closely with educators, teachers, and students – looking at how they practice the professions. Also, we strive to disseminate our knowledge directly to the educational programmes and practice. 

    Our work relies on dialogue, close collaboration, and a constructive and analytic approach to knowledge production. Our emphasis is on qualitative approaches to research. 

    We welcome local, national, and international partners.
