From January 2019, I have started a new two-year post as Postdoctoral Researcher in the project “What’s in the App? Digitally-mediated communication within contemporary multilingual families across time and space”. The PI of this project – WhatsInApp – is Prof. Åsa Palviainen. Project is financed by Academy of Finland (Sept 1, 2018 – Aug 31, 2022) and is conducted in the Department of Language and Communication Studies, University of Jyväskylä, Finland, with an extensive international collaboration. More information about the project can be found here.
Starting from January 2018, I will work on the postdoctoral research grant from the Alfred Kordelin Foundation from Finland. I received this grant for six month, and during this time I will be affiliated with the Finnish Institute for Educational Research, University of Jyväskylä, Finland. Thus, I will change working environment from communication studies into education. Although I will carry out my postdoctoral project independently, I will also become a member of one of Institute’s research teams — Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, lead by Professor Päivi Tynjälä. The title of my project is: Assessment of Students’ Visual Communication Competency in Finnish Higher Education and is initially planned for three years.
