About me

Aron Schoug is a PhD student in education with an interest in civil society, voluntary work, democracy, organizational learning and creativity. He combines these fields in his research on cooperation and organizing processes in nonprofit organizations and artistic collaborations. His overarching research interest is  understanding how leadership and coordination of actions take place in settings where the access to extrinsic rewards and formal authority is limited. In the research this coordination and interaction is related to various types of organizational structures, for example bureaucracy or network structures. How does leadership affect individuals´ abilities to be creative and organizations´ ability to be democratic? How can leaders in these organizations create conditions for learning on the individual and group level and use this learning in the organizational development?

Aron is a trained Steiner school teacher and holds a master's degree in education from Stockholm University. He is a member of the organizational pedagogics research group at the Department of Education. In addition to his research, he teaches at the Human Resource Management Program and supervises bachelor theses. In previous research projects, Aron has studied voluntary engagement from a motivational perspective and regularly giving lectures in nonprofit organizations who want to develop the engagement of their members.
