Biosketch: Assoc. professor Annika Lantz-Andersson

Annika Lantz-Andersson is Associate Professor in education at the University of Gothenburg and a member of The Linnaeus Centre for Research on Learning, Interaction and Mediated Communication in Contemporary Society (LinCS) as well as part of the University of Gothenburg strength area of learning research (LETStudio). Annika’s research, which is rooted in a sociocultural tradition concerns research on communication and learning from a dialogical and microanalytical perspective, with a focus on social interaction the use of digital technology and what that implies for learning and education. The general aim of Annika’s PhD study was to explore the in situ practices that emerge among students when technology becomes part of educational arrangements. Her post-doc research involved two research projects within the LETStudio milieu. Both projects outlined below were motivated by interests in how we appropriate new knowledge and gain new experiences in various social settings and the role of digital technologies in such activities.

The first project was called Inquiry-to-insight (I2I) where we study young peoples’ learning about environmental problems in the context of acidification of oceans by means of various digital resources with a research interest in how their understandings of science knowledge develop.

The second research project named “Linguascapes - Language learning in social media worlds”, was financed by The Marcus and Amalia Wallenberg Foundation. This project had a focus on young people’s engagement in social media worlds. The aim of the research was to gain insights regarding the implications of utilizing social media as part of specific linguistic activities of language learning practices, comprising mundane communication practices.

Currently, Annika is involved in a research project focusing on the growing phenomenon of teachers engaging in professional development outside the traditional structures of schooling as an institution. This project is financed by the Swedish Research Council and is named The Flipped education movement (FEM). By adopting an innovative research focus when analysing teachers’ professional development the main emphasis of the studies that will be conducted within the project will be in relation to teachers’ professional discussions in various online communities.
