To describe, understand and explain the work and education of teachers there is a need for research around the phenomenon to get together and make a vigorous effort. To make it easier for these kinds of meetings we have since a couple of years set up a Nordic network with focus on research about teachers work and teacher education.
The network is supposed to function as a medium between scientists/research but also to work as a contact area towards professional teachers. We also want to try to facilitate contacts between interested parties so that co-operation and exchanges can begin and disparate research efforts can be synchronized. Furthermore the network wants to promote that research findings in the area become available and can be used by scientists and of professionals in the field.
The network was initiated in 2003. As from 2006 we arrange presentations in connection with the NERA (Nordic Educational Research Association) conference.
