Om Shruti Taneja Johansson

Shruti Taneja Johansson is a Senior Lecturer at the Dept. of Education and Special Education, University of Gothenburg. She holds a PhD in education and has degrees in psychology and the multi-disciplinary field of child and childhood studies. Prior to starting at the university, she has worked extensively with children and young people with developmental disabilities and has experience from special schools, regular schools, residential schools, respite care and residential homes in England, Sweden and India.

 

Research interests
My research is in the area of disability, education and inclusion, ranging from the Swedish context to a wider international perspective. I have a specific interest in perspectives and practices related to inclusive education and to the education of children with disabilities, with a focus on South Asia. The interaction between culture and autism, more specifically, how cultural understandings shape perspectives and practices across settings, is another area of interest. Recently I have started looked at pupil health, school difficulties and inclusive education.

Between 2017-2019 I have been involved in a project on Health Promoting Schools. In this project, locally initiated development projects in school jurisdictions were mapped and analyzed with the aim of improving the school's work towards health-promoting school development. These projects were funded by the Swedish National Agency for Education in two rounds.

Currently I am working on a research project “Participation for all? School and post-school pathways of young people with functional disabilities”, supported by the Swedish Research Council. The project focus upon the educational pathways of two groups of young people: young people who are deaf and those with ADHD. The study aims to generate knowledge that can contribute to identifying successful criteria for transitions to adulthood for children and young adults.

Teaching interests
I teach mainly courses within the field of special and inclusive education, both within the special-educator and teacher programs and also independent courses. Qualitative research methods is another area of expertise. I am teaching and supervising students at all levels, from undergraduate degree to postgraduate degree. I have developed a variety of university courses for teachers on cognitive developmental disabilities and intellectual disabilities, with focus on learning, participation and development, as well as on health promotion in schools.

I am currently course director for the following courses offered in Swedish:

  • Learning and Development Concerning Pupils with Intellectual Disability
  • Developmental cognitive disabilities - participation and learning, part I
  • Developmental cognitive disabilities - participation and learning, part II
  • Pupil Health and Developing a Health Promoting School
