Completed projects

"Learning resources and writing in educational textual cultures"  (2010 – 2013)

  • The project will explore characteristics of and use of subjectoriented writing and reflective writing in upper secondary school and teacher training. Writing and textual cultures seem to be different depending on the subject: those of the natural sciences are thought to differ from those of the humanities. Our project will use case studies from relevant subjects in order to examine how learning resources are used effectively in writing in given groups of students.
  • Participants: Bente Aamotsbakken, Norunn Askeland, Eva Maagerø, Dagrun Skjelbred and Line Wittek.
