Pedagogy, Education, Praxis - PEP

This network collaborate around issues concerning pedagogy and education and strive for a conversation between the anglosaxian and continetal traditions in these matters. Prallell empirical projects are conducted in the different countries to give information for discussions and publications.

Presentation of the project

This network is principally organised around a program of parallel cross-national empirical projects in four main areas, such as Leading and Learning; Education for all; Action research and Bildung and Education. The network brings proven capability, expertise and synergies to a program of research on the development of educational practice. In doing so, it contributes (a) to an emerging literature of research in practice theory, and (b) focuses the practice theory research program squarely on the development of educational/pedagogical practice. The network plans to meet once a year to exchange findings but also to participate in international conferences, invite other researchers interested in the work and provide critical review of the work. So far the network has been productive. In a series of interconnected studies, they have been comparing and contrasting the contemporary conditions of educational practice, and the conditions for the development of educational practice in the Nordic countries, the Netherlands and Australia.
