Senior lecturer

Research subject: Curriculum studies
Research domain: Educational Science

One of Tobias Fredlund’s research interests is how teaching and learning are affected by different forms of communication, such as language, gestures, images and diagrams, that teachers and students use. In particular, his research focuses on the teaching and learning of science.


Tobias Fredlund participates in a research project called DesDiNaTe. The project is best described as practice-based research, where researchers and preschool teachers cooperate to improve the teaching and learning – in this case – of science/technology, environmental issues and sustainable development. He is also a member of the research group ROLE – Research on Learning Environments.
