The research group explores questions of social studies didactics and sociological issues related to education in general. We are particularly concerned with the purpose and role of social studies in schools and kindergartens, education for democracy, sustainable teaching and ICT-supported collaboration learning. Several of the projects we work with originate in practice. We collaborate with stakeholders in the field on research and development projects. We also have students affiliated to the research group, who participate in various research projects. The group has contact with social science didactic environments nationally and internationally.
