The research group investigates how the curriculum of primary and secondary education should develop in order to give children and teenagers an optimal start in the current dynamic, complex society and professional practice. What kind of knowledge and competences do they need, how can these competences be taught, and how can we equip teachers to design the desired curriculum?
