My research focuses on cultural perspectives on science education and conditions for students’ participation and learning, particularly in relation to questions of science curriculum, scientific literacy and citizenship. Drawing primarily on Cultural-Historical Activity Theory and socio-cultural theory, I work primarily with ethnographic and design-based research in science classrooms. For an introduction see this
I am also affiliated as scientific leader to
Stockholm Teaching & Learning Studies
(STLS). STLS is a platform designed to initiate, support and conduct small-scale classroom-based didactic research on teaching and learning. The research within STLS draw on a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches and aims at contributing to the development of theory relevant to teachers.
I supervise doctoral students working with action research oriented approaches in science and technology education:
