General description

My main research area is teaching and learning in higher education. I am especially interested in students' and employees' learning at the interface of education and work, development of students' generic skills, learning at the workplace, and teachers' professional development.  I have also conducted research projects in the field of vocational education and training.  

During 2010-2014 I served as the editor-in-chief of Educational Research Review. As to community engagement, I have acted in several positions of trust such as a member of the Finnish Education Evaluation Council in 2008-2013, and a member of the Evaluation of Group of Higher Education Pedagogy in Finland in 2022-2023..
