The goal is to contribute to developing the members’ research expertise, help with publication, and, not least, transfer research-based knowledge to teaching activities at the department.
A joint project, Teacher Education Schools in Vocational Teacher Education, has got off to a good start. The project looks at long-term collaborative structures and relevant educational content. Members of the group and interested parties from other research groups are welcome to participate.
