The Research Group on Higher Education Learning Practices at Stockholm University engages in theoretical and empirical research on different aspects of higher education. Key research topics include students’ and teachers’ learning and teaching processes in different higher education settings, but also conditions for academic development, with a particular focus on the complex relationship between educational leadership, the organization of teaching and its implication for student learning in higher education. The group runs the Swedish Higher Education Research Network (SHERN) which hosts the SHERN seminar that offers researchers within the field of higher education regular opportunities to present and discuss ongoing research work within the field.
