Designing language learning, change, applied language studies, nexus analysis
My research interests arise from our changing everyday life with ubiquitous technologies. I have studied how future language teachers learn to manage complex pedagogical situations while designing for language learning in hybrid environments as a part of their university studies. I am interested in examining learning, teaching and teacher education as multi- and transdisciplinary phenomena, and promoting change by developing pedagogical practices.
I have been able to apply my research interests in the working life as well: At the University of Oulu I have acted as university teacher in Languages and Communication unit, the English programme at the Faculty of Humanities and as a university teacher of foreign language didactics at the Faculty of Education. I have also acted as a principal lecturer in Interpreting and Linguistic Accessibility at the Humak University of Applied Sciences.
My professional background comes from language teaching. Before my doctoral research, I have worked as a teacher of English and Swedish in vocational education at Vantaa Vocational College Varia, as well as in basic and general upper secondary education.
