PhD (Education) from the University of Turku in 2016. Currently working at the Unit for University Pedagogy.


I have accomplished pedagogical studies (60 ECTS). My teaching experience at the university comes mainly from teaching research skills to student teachers. For several years, I have taught research method workshops, in which teacher students carry out and report an empirical study. Recently, I have also guided bachelor’s and master’s theses. I also have teaching experience from university pedagogical unit, where I have planned and organized university pedagogical studies. Part of these studies have been arranged purely online. I also have some experience from teaching in English in an educational export project (Saudi Arabia BLCSI).


My research interests have always been in university pedagogics, and my research aims at supporting learning and developing teaching at the university. In my doctoral thesis I studied university students’ regulation of learning and text processing with multiple methods and in various contexts. Recently, the focus of my research has shifted towards university teachers, whose conceptions of teaching, pedagogical development during pedagogical trainings and regulation of teaching and development of teaching I’m currently studying.
