How we work

  • We are organized in three areas of research, each containing a series of interdisciplinary themes:

    • Understanding Digital Technoloy 
    • Teaching, Learning, and Digital Technologies
    • Designing Online and Hybrid Learning Environments.
  • We have a special emphasis on VIA’s bachelor degree programmes in education, their domains of practice, and continuing education. In addition, we study how ICT affects professional practices and pedagogies throughout the educational system.

    Within our three research areas, we help with clarification of terminology and concepts that arise in order to communicate, develop, and mature projects. Moreover, all research areas have activities consisting of interventions and communication. Also, we initiate projects, participate in projects, and act as project managers.

  • In this research, we focus on the establishment of technology understanding as a new subject in professional educations and professions. Digital technology understanding builds on various existing subject traditions, such as computer science, design, design processes, and technology philosophy. In the coupling of the existing disciplines, a translation and selection work is needed to create a rewarding interaction with the professional disciplines.
  • In this field, we develop knowledge of what characterizes teaching and learning in the encounter with digital technologies. Through research and development projects, we qualify a reflective professionalism about the use of digital technologies in teaching and practice situations.

  • In this research, we focus on learning processes and teaching with digital resources and technologies. The research contributes to the development and qualification of digital learning resources and teaching practices that incorporate digital technologies.
