RESEARCH AREAS AND INTERESTS

My research interests are students’ conceptions of knowledge, generic skills, critical thinking and performance-based assessment in the context of higher education. My current main research projects are 'KAPPAS!' (CLA+ international) and 'International Collaborative for Performance Assessment of Learning in Higher Education – Research and Development' (iPAL). I received the best educational dissertation award of the year 2015 Finnish Educational Research Association (FERA) and EARLI Jure mentoring grant in 2017.
