Maarika Piispanen

I work as a university teacher in Kokkola university Consortium Chydenius, in adult teacher training. The main areas of my work in pre-service teacher training studies are linked with the following: pedagogical aspect in pre-primary and primary education, the development of learning in the authentic Contextual-pedagogical environments, individual learning, and well-being in the aspect of art-based methods in elementary school environments. In addition to pre-service teacher training, my interest and responsibilities lies on in-service teacher training, where I concentrate on developing an early foreign language learning model into Finnish basic education. Currently my interests lie on ubiquitous, authentic learning and learning environments as well as education on individual learning, art-based methods, and well-being.
