Clas Olander
Head Of Department/Senior Lecturer

citat My research focuses on language aspects of learning something, mainly in science and mathematics. The starting point is that content and form cannot be separated, and the content is usually communicated in various ways, such as images, text, charts, animations, formulas and gestures citat

In terms of teaching, research and outreach cooperation, I work mainly with pupils' meaning making processes, teacher's collegial learning and students´ development of professional skills
