Pedagogical work

One of the prerequisites for developing a social and sustainable society is high quality education, from pre-school and primary school to vocational training and higher education. Pedagogical work deals with issues of relevance to society in general and education in particular. The area contains pedagogical, general didactic and subject-didactic issues.
