About Sonja Sheridan

Research interests
My research interest focuses on educational quality and constructive competition and, on this basis, to evaluate and develop the quality of preschools and schools. My theoretical underpinnings are interactionist perspectives, where learning environments comprise complex systems of interplay between people, material resources, and education processes that need to be elucidated from different perspectives, while at the same time requiring broad points of view in terms of both research approach and methods. The object of research is therefore learning in preschools and schools, how they contribute to the learning of children and adolescents, the role of the teacher, and the context in which learning takes place in relation to overarching goals.

Teaching interests
I teach about educational quality and constructive competition in relation to the learning of children and adolescents.

Keywords
educational quality, constructive competition, interaction, preschool and school, information and communication technology in preschool
