Biography

I am a researcher in the Faculty of Education at the University of Oulu. My doctoral research relates upper secondary teachers and their autonomy, in Canada and in Finland. I am interested in teachers, teacher education and teacher identity. I have been teaching in the Intercultural Teacher Education programme as well as the Education and Globalisation master programme for a few years now. I have supervised students' thesis related to various topics - mainly in relations with teachers' work. Please contact me at audrey.paradis@student.oulu.fi (not the @oulu.fi address).
