Kari Kragh Blume Dahl

As per October 1, 2018, Kari K. B. Dahl has been appointed Associate Professor at the Department of Educational Psychology in the field of Learning, Management and Organisation.

Kari’s research focuses on how organisational processes influence personal and professional learning and becoming among student teachers and teachers. Teachers’ practices in schools are explored through the lens of the education system, focusing on the relationship between how providers of teacher education, such as university colleges, construct learning arenas, professionalism and organisational learning for students. An additional focus is health and health education, which are studied from the perspective of organisational psychology.

Her work is inspired by multimodality in theory and methods, developed during years of ethnographic fieldwork conducted in Kenya, Tanzania, the Philippines and Denmark in settings including schools, teacher-training colleges, universities, homes and non-formal education.

She has published a number of books and articles in international journals on teachers and teacher education, and currently coordinates the research unit PLIKT (Professional Teachers: Identity, Competence and Becoming) at DPU.

Kari earned her PhD at the Danish University of Education. She has a background in psychology, MA in (Ed.) Psychology, and is also a licensed psychologist. She enjoys hiking, listening to music and travelling cross-country in Asia and Africa with her two children.
