We utilise a range of research methods, including discourse analysis, ethnography, quantitative analysis, conversation analysis, the philosophy of education, video research and visual research methods. Our research community is closely connected to the Nordic Centre of Excellence ‘Quality in Nordic Teaching’ (QUINT) and more extensive Nordic and national projects focused on, among other topics, Nordic comprehensive schools, racialisation, children’s socio-emotional development as well as schools, school choice and segregation.
The community’s primary working language is Swedish, as DIMISO strives to promote opportunities to conduct pedagogical research in Swedish. The community organises regular seminars where participants are welcome to use the language they are the most comfortable with.
The research community provides a solid scholarly foundation for Swedish-language general education, adult education and Swedish-language teacher training: class teacher training, early childhood teacher training, special needs teacher training and subject teacher training as well as university pedagogy.
