The Department of Teacher Education and School Research aims through research to sustain and further develop its position as a leading academic milieu in Norway in the fields of teacher education, subject didactics, educational leadership and school relevant educational research.
Research at ILS is mainly centred around main areas of research which are maintained by research groups. The research groups consist of senior researchers, Post. Doc. Research fellows, Ph. D research fellows and assistant Professors. In addition to research carried out in the research groups, the Department has a number of researches in the forefront of school relevant educational research.
