Om mig

I am an Associate Professor of Education at the Department of Education, Stockholm University. Since 1993 I have been teaching Educational Sciences (learning theories, curriculum theory, education policy, history of education, ethics in education, adult learning) in teacher education and training for all school levels, supervising examination theses at Bachelor, Master and PhD level - and developed courses within the field of Adult and Lifelong Education and Learning. My research interests are focused on the following areas:

  • Folkbildning (Popular Adult Education),
  • Educators' competencies with focus on adult educators,
  • Vocational Education and Training, VET,
  • Learning and Quality Assurance in Education,
  • Pedagogy and didactics in Higher Education.

My experience of international research cooperation and teaching is extensive. In 2014 I was a visiting Professor at the Graduate School of Education and Human Development at Nagoya University. During 2013-2015 I was appointed as External Evaluator of Greece’s higher education institutions by The Hellenic Quality Assurance & Accreditation Agency for Higher Education.

  • 2018. Petros Gougoulakis (et al.). "Teaching Trends and Challenges in Contemporary Learning Environments", 656-676

    This paper presents the round table speeches and discussions on the theme "University Pedagogy: Thoughts, Proposals, Reflections", at the 2nd International Workshop on Applied Didactics: "Teaching Trends and Challenges in Contemporary Learning Environments". In order to achieve the active and experiential engagement of all participants, a process inspired by The Science Café movement has been applied. Participants were invited to send short comments and questions regarding the issue of University Pedagogy/Teaching and learning in Higher Education. These comments were collected, categorized and discussed immediately after the predetermined speeches, which are presented extensively herein with the following titles: "University Pedagogy: Tracing Teaching in Higher Education", "University Pedagogy in Practice: An Epistemological and Didactical Approach" and "University Pedagogy in Greece: findings of empirical research". The participants then participated in an open discussion based on the questions they had asked before, but also after the prepared lectures. The review of all the contributions during the conversation and the submitted proposals conclude that University Pedagogy can be a powerful means of enhancing the quality of Greek Higher Education, provided that: a) university institutions invest in the continuous improvement of the teaching skills of their staff, and (b) university professors have incentives and the readiness to engage in teaching and learning based on a scientific ground and well-tried methods.

  • 2018. Petros Gougoulakis, Lázaro Moreno Herrera. Emergent Issues in vocational Education & training, 440-475

    The purpose of this chapter is to present the workplace-based learning that takes place within the publicly funded VET in Sweden at the upper secondary education level. More than an overall background of upper secondary vocational education particular attention is given to the relationship between school-based and work place-based training (apprenticeship), on one side, and how the cooperation between educational suppliers and working life partners is shaped, on the other. In our time of accelerated globalization, where the current and the future status of VET is a priority issue in the discussion agenda of national and international educational policy bodies, it seems that among other challenges the connection between school and working life is urgently important, and a crucial quality dimension of the provided vocational programs. The presentation ends up with some reflections on the future of VET in Sweden with tentative proposals for policy considerations and actions.

  • 2018. Petros Gougoulakis, Ulf Fredriksson. In Pursuit of World-Class Universities, 215-238

    This chapter highlights important features of the Swedish university system in a historical perspective, with references to world-leading research and education. In focus is the distinction between university colleges and universities, and how this is related to education and research of high quality. The notion world-leading research and education is described as a particular challenge for Sweden, as country with a knowledge-based economy dependent on a global market. Sweden has the ambitions to achieve social justice and equal opportunities. There has been an emphasis on expanding higher education not only in terms of students, and also in terms of HEIs. It can be argued that there is a need to have a broad foundation to become world-leader in higher education, but at the same time, there exists a harsh competition about funding between HEIs. This tension will be at the core of future developments of higher education and research in Sweden.
