About Camilla Björklund

Camilla Björklund is Professor in Education at the Department of Education, Communication and Learning at the University of Gothenburg. Research areas of interest are mathematics learning in the early years, teachers’ professional pedagogical development and preschool space for learning.

During 2015-2018 Björklund is the project leader for FASETT - The ability to discern the first ten numbers as a necessary ground for arithmetic skills (funded by the National Research Council). Preschool children's experiences of numbers as part-whole-relations are challenged and stimulated in interventions, involving preschool teachers who implement theoretically driven activities in preschool practice. 103 children are participating in the project and their experiences of number and arithmetic skills will be followed during two years (preschool and preschool class).

Björklund is also a researcher in the project Play-based didactics: developing early childhood didactics theory in cooperation between researchers and preschool teachers (2017-2018, funded by the Swedish Institute of Educational Research). The project aims to develop the theoretical ground for play-based didactics through empirical studies of children's play and learning and preschool teachers' involvement in play. 
 

Björklund held a post-doc position 2011–2013 (funded by the National Research Council) working with the project ”Learning about space”. The project involved research in early childhood practice aiming to develop pedagogical strategies in mathematics education suitable for preschool and preschool class contexts. Learning Study was used in the project as design for professional development and knowledge production, involving the researcher in a close developmental process with participating early childhood teachers. 
 

In 2007 Björklund defended her doctoral thesis ”Critical conditions of learning – toddlers encountering mathematics” (in Swedish) at Åbo Akademi University in Finland. The thesis builds upon an empirical explorative study of 1–3-year olds encounters with mathematics in preschool. The theoretical and analytical framework is Variation theory of learning.
 

Björklund has been involved in several projects within the field of mathematics learning and teaching in early childhood education, for example ”Att skapa rum för matematiklärande” (Åbo Akademi University) and LukiMat (in collaboration with the Niilo Mäki Institute and University of Helsinki).
