About me

I am a Professor of Education at the Faculty of Education and Culture. I have three particular areas of expertise and research interests: teacher education, inclusive education, and pedagogy of multiliteracies. First, in teacher education my research delves into the professional learning of teachers focusing especially on the reflective approach. Second, I explore the preconditions and processes of inclusive education in school communities. Finally, in multiliteracies studies I am interested in the development of children’s literacy skills as well as pre-service teachers’ pedagogical skills to teach critical literacies.
