Research group THE RESEARCH GROUP ARED’s work can be described as a joint interest in education, its point of departure being the digitalisation of school, teacher education, and society.
Theoretically and empirically, ARED’s educational research concerns school and teacher education, policy and steering documents, subject teaching and learning as well as identity and social values. Currently, ARED’s research centres on three subareas:
1. Teacher education and becoming a teacher
2. Educational policy, school development, and school professions
3. Identity and social values
Each subarea focuses on research questions possible to study in different empirical contexts, which means that the knowledge contribution within one subarea will be valuable and relevant also for the research conducted in the other two subareas.
Examples of research questions:
ARED is actively involved in three national graduate schools financed by the Swedish Research Council. The three schools focus on various aspects of digitalisation in school, teacher education, and society. For additional information: https://graderesearch.umu.se/
