Inclusive science teaching in multilingual classrooms - a design study

Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands face similar challenges in providing high quality science teaching for all, given the high influx of newly arrived students, but there are remarkable differences in approaches towards hyper diversity in mainstream classes. Dutch educational authorities offer general frameworks but do not interfere with teachers’ pedagogical choices nor in professional development, in contrast to a very active Swedish National Agency.

Mixed classes And Pedagogical Solutions (MAPS)

Urban and school segregation in cities result in diversification of the actual educational environments, where children study and spend their time in urban schools. Especially in (lower-)secondary education the levels of school segregation have increased in the capital areas of Finland, Iceland and the Netherlands. How about in (pre-)primary schools? Mixed classes And Pedagogical Solutions (MAPS) intends to offer a comparative view on policies and practices of inclusion in (pre-)primary education.

Gender equality, Diversity and Societal Security

The Nordic model is traditionally associated with high levels of societal trust, egalitarian values, and peaceful forms of conflict resolution through cooperation within and among political and corporative organisations. These characteristics also constitute the underpinnings for the ways in which security work is perceived and conducted in a Nordic setting, manifested in recent reforms introducing conscription on formally equal terms for men and women in Norway as well as Sweden.

Relational wellbeing in the lives of refugee young people in Finland, Norway and the UK

Research confirms that unaccompanied asylum-seeking young people face obstacles and challenges in destination countries such as Finland, Norway, and the UK. Over time, despite the difficulties, some are successful in being given permission to settle in these countries. As they settle, many public authorities fade from their lives and social networks are built, with hopes for a good future. Ordinary life emerges once again, as they develop sustaining relationships with other people, and add to the life of their new country.

Making it Home: An Aesthetic Methodological Contribution to the Study of Migrant Home-Making and Politics of Integration -MaHoMe

Concepts of home and home-making are central, materially and metaphorically to the politics and policies of migration and integration. Yet, dominant integration discourses largely view home as a singular space, located in one place and time, implicitly framing migrants' fluid and multifaceted experience and creation of home as incomprehensible, deviant and potentially disturbing.

Nordic Centre of Excellence: Quality in Nordic Teaching (QUINT)

The Nordic Centre of Excellence «Quality in Nordic Teaching» (QUINT) will focus on teaching quality in Nordic classrooms asking questions like: In what way does teaching make a difference to student learning and engagement across and within school subjects, with and without digital-rich support, in mono- and multi-cultural contexts across the Nordic countries? How can classroom videos be effective tools for teacher training? Does the use of video-technology and other digital systems generate potential for new forms of collaborative research between researchers and practitioners?

Migrants and solidarities: Negotiating deservingness in welfare micropublics

Migrants and solidarities: Negotiating deservingness in welfare micropublics (MigSol) breaks new ground by exploring how solidarities are imagined and practiced in negotiations of migrant deservingness. It explores the fundamental question of who is, and who is not, considered deserving of welfare services, how deservingness is negotiated and with what implications, in a context of increasing diversity driven by migration, welfare restructuring, and austerity. Such negotiations serve to draw boundaries between those migrants who have access to the support and services of the welfare state, or are believed to have access, and those who are excluded, e.g. because they are deemed as ‘not belonging’ or are seen as responsible for their own neediness.
