    • More about the Research Group

      The research on didactics and pedagogical content knowledge is directed towards our own teaching in the Early Childhood Teacher Education, as well as towards development of students’ didactical and pedagogical skills when working with children. 
      Several of the members in the group emphasize student involvement in the research. 

      Theoretical as well as empirical studies are conducted in collaborative projects between group members. Most of the studies are empirical. Most of them are qualitative studies, but several of the ongoing studies started with quantitative data, and have been developed qualitatively.
