The Faculty Board of Teacher Education focuses research in teacher education and educational work. In recent years, this field of research has expanded greatly which is reflected both in the amount of external funding received and the fact that there are now about seventy doctoral students working with educational work, education and subject didactics. The Faculty Board is striving to bring many different cultural perspectives into the faculty’s activities and is therefore particularly positive to applications from persons with a background other than Swedish.
