My research area mainly concerns knowledge, competence and learning linked to work. I am interested in how adults learn in social contexts and how conditions, such as organizational conditions, shape this learning at work and for future tasks.
My thesis "Informal learning in a formal organization - about meaning creation, knowledge domains and competence in working with municipal goals" focuses on the work that takes place in connection with the preparation of operational goals. The thesis explains the conditions and forms for this process and how the actions of individuals are shaped by organizational conditions and interpersonal interaction. The thesis is an example of research on the learning that takes place at work.
