Karim Hamza

Karim Hamza is an associate professor and senior lecturer in Science Didactics at the Department of Subject Didactics. His main research interest concerns the development and modification of didactic models and designs in close collaboration with active teachers. During the years 2014 – 2020, Karim led the practice-oriented research project RiskEdu, consisting of four researchers and two active teachers.

Karim is also one of the authors of the collaboration model Didactic Development Dialogue and has, together with Per Anderhag, developed the concept “Teachers’ low-intensity development work” as a way to talk about and make visible the school and teaching development that is constantly going on, often in silence, as part of teachers’ daily practice.
