Research on Diversity in Education and Society (ReDES)

The results of the conducted research in the group can be especially beneficial for future and active special pedagogy teachers, student health teams and teachers at different levels in the education system. Everyone with an interest in diversity, pedagogy/special pedagogy and public health from a societal perspective are welcome to take part in the activities and work in REDES. The platforms for the common work in the research group are seminars with the aim to read and be critical friends to each other’s scientific texts, write research grant applications and prepare conference participation.

REDES research group consists of researchers, teachers and PhD-students, preferably from the Institution School Development and Leadership but also from other institutions at the Faculty Learning and Society. A central theme for the research in the group is diversity, which is studied in relation to teaching, learning, language/multilingualism, communication, profession, ethics, health and cooperation.

Phenomenography, Variation Theory and Learning Study (PeVALS)

The common theoretical base is research on phenomenography, variation theory as theoretical perspectives on learning, but also action research and improvement science. Based on these approaches, the group studies intentional learning at pre-school or school together with teachers, with a focus on the learner’s perspectives. By studying the relationship between instruction and learning processes, results are used to develop learning and design new teaching approaches based on scientific knowledge.

Research on Adult and Higher Education (RAHE)

The researchers are studying adult learning in education in relation to previous learning, experiences and professional skills. The aim is to provide knowledge about the field of tension between adult students’ professional skills and previous experience-based learning through different theoretical and methodological approaches. The group investigates the way in which this affects different learning processes in various contexts during education mainly at distance, regardless of whether students attend a professional or postgraduate degree. The group also targets an interest to students with non-academic backgrounds.
