Research at the Centre for Learning Environment

Research is an important part of the work at Norwegian Centre for Learning Environment and Behavioural Research, which aims to develop new knowledge through this activity.

The centre is committed to producing research results which are relevant to and useful for the education sector. In keeping with section 1.5 of the Act on Universities and University Colleges, this research will be free and maintain a high level of quality.

Researchers at the centre undertake to observe ethical guidelines for the social sciences, the humanities, law and theology adopted by Norway’s National Committee for Research Ethics in the Social Sciences and the Humanities (Nesh).

These pages present an overview of research at the centre. They provide access to peer-reviewed articles published in national and international journals, peer-reviewed books and chapters in symposia, and published research articles, chapters and books which have not been peer-reviewed.

The site also provides overviews of PhD projects and other current research work at the centre.

A number of students at the University of Stavanger (UiS) write master’s dissertations on special education. Advising on such assignments is part of the centre’s work at the UiS, and provides the opportunity to develop knowledge of importance for its activities.

These pages also present master’s dissertations which have been graded A or B, and which are felt to represent relevant knowledge on the learning environment and behaviour in the nursery schools and schools.
