Riikka Tumelius

Doctoral Candidate
English Philology, Faculty of Humanities

In my doctoral dissertation I study interaction in the classroom and the use of new technologies as well as the changing role of the teacher in the technology-rich world. The practical objective of the research is to develop the use of the new technologies in language teaching and in teacher education. I use multiple data gathered during an online learning project, which was carried out on an advanced level course on English Philology at the University of Oulu in 2009. The stuĀ­dents on the course designed and carried out the online learning project for young beginner learners of English. As the research strategy, I use nexus analysis and mediated discourse analysis.
