Research

My researc aims to seek answers to how geography teachers describe their work to develop students’ geographical abilities. Furthermore I want to relate the teachers’ descriptions of geographical abilities to how the term is used in a national and international context and in compare with other related terms such as geographical skills and competencies. My aim is also to relate the teachers’ description to the traditions of geography, to the view of knowledge and the teachers’ goals and to the purpose with their teaching. Also relevant is to do research about the intentions behind the policy documents for geography teachers. My research is a case study, consisting of various qualitative methods: reflections of recorded lessons together with the teachers’ and interviews with teachers’ and others which are involved in the process of making the policy documents.
