The research will explore theoretical and practical aspects of pre-service teacher education in relation to the pressing issue of diversity. Diversity is conceptualized as negotiated in everyday interactions. The research is situated in the tradition of school ethnography and employs multisided ethnography, which is suitable for the simultaneous study of the links among multiple related contexts (the university and the lower-secondary school environment). The research focuses on 1) the ways in which students in a Master’s teacher education program become acquainted with the principles of working with diversity during the general education courses, 2) the ways in which diversity is constructed at the lower-secondary schools where the students do their teaching practice. The project introduces an innovative methodological approach and expands ethnographic research in the university environment. The outcomes include 2 studies in journals indexed in WOS and 3 studies indexed in SCOPUS.
