Description of research and teaching

Elina E. Ketonen is post-doctoral researcher in educational psychology at University of Helsinki, specializing in advanced statistical methods. She has used both cross-sectional, longitudinal and experience sampling datasets in her research and several statistical methods, such as variable- and person-oriented approaches, multilevel modelling and most recently, intraindividual analyses. On 2015 she visited University of Oxford to specialize in analyzing nested datasets with random slopes models (i.e., idiographic approach used in personality research). Elina is interested in investigating the relationships between academic emotions, student motivation, learning, and well-being. More specifically, she is interested in exploring what makes people invest their time in studying and what factors predict learning and achievement. Her present work also examines how students’ general learning orientations and the characteristics of the academic context are related to different situational factors (e.g., academic emotions). She is also interested in how to develop learning environments that foster positive emotions, engagement, and active learning, where enjoyment of learning is enhanced and potential negative emotions are utilized in a productive way.
