Curriculum Vitae

My interest relating to research is directed for the music teacher education, its development as well as music technology, working conditions and well-being of music teachers and music. On research I also have focused on examining open learning environments, pedagogic possession of music as a school subject and problems of evaluation in basic education and in post-graduate education.

In my last studies I have concentrated on more widely on field of arts and crafts education. Especially I have focused on students’ conceptions and experiences of teaching arts and crafts in early childhood education.
