In recent years, researchers FIKS (a unit at the University of Oslo) have worked with a number of different municipalities to strengthen the competence of teachers in school. Central themes have been assessment, digitization and multimodal texts. Parts of this work have also been linked to the MuLVu Innovation Project, which is funded by the Norwegian Research Council and carried out in collaboration with six schools and 20 teachers who use iPads in Bærum municipality.
In this open seminar, researchers from FIKS, will talk about experiences from these collaborations. What role can teachers have in research projects? How can teachers and researchers together produce new knowledge which can strengthen teachers' collaboration in professional communities?
