Daniel Alvunger, Professor

Professor at Linnaeus University

Daniel Alvunger, is an Associate Professor in Education at the Department of Education and Teachers’ Practice at Linnæus University, Sweden, where he also holds a position as Dean of Teacher Education. He is a member of the research group SITE (Studies in Curriculum, Teaching and Evaluation) and his research is focused on education policy and curriculum making as social practice, i.e. the relationship between transnational education policy, national educational reforms and implications in local school and teaching contexts. On local arenas, it concerns teachers’ professional agency and how teachers interpret, transform and enact the curriculum in practice and how different forms of knowledge are represented in teaching. Another field is the knowledge base and organisation of teacher education, for example partly how different discourses shape and frame the understanding of the teaching profession and how various actors make meaning of the content of teacher education, partly how empirically oriented analyses can be used to develop teacher education practice. A third research area of interest is leadership practices and relations between different actors involved in local school development work.
