Haugen, Cecilie Rønning – Journal of Education Policy, 2019

Afdal, Hilde Wågsås; Afdal, Geir – European Educational Research Journal, 2019

Saeverot, Herner; Kvam, Vegard – British Educational Research Journal, 2019
While teachers and practitioners are increasingly expected to conduct research on their own practice, there is a lot of educational research that is not directly involved in practice.

The number of people aged 60 and over across the globe is expected to double by 2050, reaching a share of more than 20 percent of the population total.
