Diversity in Education (DivE) is an interdisciplinary research group, focusing on contemporary processes of cultural diversification and their relevance in the field of education.

What we research

The scientific goal of the group is to expand empirical knowledge and theoretical insights regarding cultural, linguistic and religious complexity, to produce new knowledge on how kindergarten, school and teacher education could respond appropriately to a diverse children- and student group, and to develop research-based knowledge on intercultural awareness in education. 

More about the research group

DivE consists of members from the Faculty of Education and Natural Sciences at Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences, representing the subjects of pedagogy and religious education.
