Research on Educational Practice - REP

The research that is of immediate interest to the group is research that is directed towards educational practice.

The research group is organised with the explicit aim of supporting and contributing to high-quality international research, which means that we produce texts in English. This also implies that we mostly work with texts that are written in English.

The research that is produced and discussed in the research group regards educational institutions, such as primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and universities, as social, cultural and thus political instantiations that have gradually emerged and changed over time. The research that is dealt with in the group also takes this as one of its starting points. This does not mean, however, that the research that is produced or discussed is required to focus on education as an institutional and political activity, but rather that this is present as a framework for the subject that is dealt with.

The research that is of immediate interest to the group is research that is directed towards educational practice. This may involve research on primary schools and secondary schools but also on colleges and universities (higher education). We are open to both theoretical and empirical research, as well as research that is carried out along different methodological lines of thought. However, the members of the research group feel most comfortable with studies of an ethnographic character.
