Department of Educational Research and Development (ERD)

At our department internationally distinguished scholars examine fundamental and practical issues in professional education. We are in particular interested in (under)graduate business and economics education, training, and design of management learning practices. Our staff members probe the ways education influences students’ learning. Special attention is paid to problem-based learning and other innovative ways of organising learning in (under) graduate education. We conduct research on various aspects of innovative education and learning, develop courses, and provide training and consultancy to educators in higher education.

Innovative learning environments

​We are committed to research that integrates practice and theory, and try to develop new knowledge about professional education and professional learning. Our consultancy deals with tailoring programs for staff development that fit the needs of educators while working - or planning - in innovative learning environments.
