Researching the use of research

Renewed perspectives on research use in education (REPOSE) is a large research project that aims to provide new analytical and methodological perspectives that will support researchers and practitioners in meeting the challenge of making productive use of research in education. It is financed by the Research Council Norway and will run from September 2020 to August 2024.

In REPOSE, we will perform a philosophical inquiry of to what extent teachers’ professional knowledge base and agency can and should be informed by research evidence, a historical analysis of the development of Norwegian society‚Äôs expectations about the practical relevance of ‘pedagogical research’ from the 1930s onwards, and we will conduct several empirical analyses of contemporary structures and practices of research use. These will take place in Norway Sweden, Finland and Switzerland and make use of different methods.
