Supervisor – Annika Lantz-Andersson

Göteborgs universitet

Annika Lantz-Andersson is Associate Professor in Education and Vice Dean with a specific responsibility for the PhD education at the Faculty of Education, University of Gothenburg. She is also a member of the University of Gothenburg’s strength area of learning research (LETStudio). Annika’s research is rooted in sociohistorical traditions with a dialogic focus on social interaction, the use of digital technologies and their implications for learning and teaching. She has been involved in several research projects concerning young peoples’ participation and learning in contemporary media ecologies and investigates communication, socialization, and learning when digital technologies are part of the interactions. Her interest is motivated by the expansive digitization implying that children have access to digital texts and tools from an early age, which raises questions about what these changes on a general level mean for their literacy development and learning. This interest has also involved young peoples’ interaction and socialization in social media arenas and the implications for learning in these contexts. Currently, Annika has directed her research towards teachers’ professional digital competence, and the latest research project has had a specific focus on teachers’ professional learning by means of discussions in social media groups, outside common structures and school organizations.

Annika has a background as a teacher and has a long experience of teaching in the Teacher Education programme and supervision on bachelor- and master’s level, as well as experience of teaching on courses on PhD courses and she is currently supervisor for several PhD-students.
