The research group
Per Henning Uppstad
Per Henning Uppstad has a PhD in General Linguistics. His main research interests are linguistic philosophy underpinning dyslexia research (including the role of phonology), technology enhanced learning and early reading intervention. He has broad experience from externally funded research projects. A recurrent feature of these projects is the use of technology to support learning. He is currently the leader of a prioritized research group at the Reading Centre: Literacy and Learning, and is joint editor of the scientific journal Nordic Journal of Literacy Research.
The Reading Centre is home to several large, innovative research projects, and has regularly been awarded significant funding from nationally competitive research funding schemes.
Our research concerns language and literacy development and assessment in educational contexts, from kindergarten to workplaces.
Theoretically and methodologically the centre displays a broad fan of approaches to different aspects of literacy.
