I work as a senior lecturer in Educational Work at the Department of Educational Work. My research interest concerns children’s possibilities for participation in preschool. My thesis focused on how children’s participation is formulated at the policy level, on educators' conditions for implementation of participation for children and the outcome this produces.
Validation of prior learning is a parallel research interest. I have made a small interview study around some students' experiences of studying on a programme that includes validation of prior learning.
