I am a university lecturer in language didactics so I teach, among others, future foreign language teachers. I am the responsible person for our faculty's subject teacher education programme, also for the English-language STEP (Subject Teacher Education Programme). I am the leader in a project for early teaching of foreign languages, Varpunen, funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture, and I am involved in in-service teacher training as well as international teacher education development projects. In my research I am particularly interested in learning, studying and teaching of foreign and second languages and the development of student teacher's competences and teacher identity.
