My teaching is centred around three different parts. The most prominent is teaching in the two courses, 1FP003 and 1FL006. Both are about mathematics teaching in preschool. In addition to this specialization, I am responsible for 1MD162, a course given in English and aimed at primary school teachers, years 4-6. The participants in this course are usually from large parts of the world. I also supervise bachelor degree projects at lower and upper primary teacher education.


As part of "The Makings of a Mathematics Teacher," I investigate how mathematics teachers' professional identities develop before they graduate. I try to understand how teacher students' involvement in their teacher education programs or in contexts in or outside their schools relates to changes in their professional narratives about themselves. Since 2019, my interest has also increased related to the teacher educators teaching and what teacher students perceive as important in specific teaching situations. This part of my research collaborates with Tracy Helliwell at the University of Bristol.

I participate in two different research contexts concerning preschool. The first is PiF, problem-solving in the preschool class. The second is an interdisciplinary group that looks at Design for/in learning based on digital tools using the social semiotic perspective of multimodality.

During CERME 12, Congress of the European Society for Research in Mathematics Education 2022, I was the group leader for TWG 18a, which dealt with research on teacher education. I will also be part of the group responsible for professional development and teacher education, TWG 18, during Cerme 13, 2023.

I am a member of the MAVI - Board (Mathematical views),, 2021 - 2024. MAVI is a conference in mathematics education that every year, in Sep 2023 in Vercelli, Italy, meets up and presents research that arises through research about mathematical beliefs and identity-related research. 


As program council leader for the Preschool Teacher Degrees, I lead the work that will especially monitor that the educational elements together contribute to the students being given the conditions to achieve degree goals and general goals for higher education, i.e. that progression in the program studies is ensured.

Project manager: Develop pilot courses hybrid in preschool teacher education between 2020-2022. The project is funded by RUL. The group is expected to complete and report back during the spring semester of 2022.

Between 2023 - 2025, with Marina Wernholm and Emelie Patron, I will run the network "Digital tools as part of younger children's life world and learning". At all network meetings, the exchange of experience will be a permanent feature. Other initiatives may, for example, but not exclusively, involve testing new digital tools within both teacher education and professional activities, the inclusion of experiences from teacher education into professional activities and vice versa, as well as initiatives for practical research of both new and ongoing digital elements within all activities.

  • Ebbelind, A., Palmér, H. (2019). Tal och mönster. Skolverket.

    Denna text handlar om undervisning och lärande av naturliga tal och mönster. Textens första del tar utgångspunkt i begreppet tal och vad en god begreppsförståelse för tal kan innebära för elever i förskoleklass. Därefter följer en del om mönster – vad är ett mönster i matematisk mening och vad kan det innebära för elever i förskoleklass att utforska och beskriva mönster?
