Research Projects at TDM

At Centre for Teaching Development and Digital Media, we are engaged in both larger and smaller research and development projects with a wide range of partners. Common to the projects is a focus on education and teaching - often with the inclusion of technology and digital media. Many of our research and development projects are empirically founded and have a close link between theory and practice. See an overview or search in all of our projects here.

Current research projects

We participate in major international research projects supported by e.g. The Erasmus+ programme and development projects supported by e.g. Danish Ministry of Education.

Current PhD Projects

A Culture of Dialogue: Fostering dialogic literacy through educational design in a Danish upper secondary school
