The Room of Opportunity

August 31, 2016


In Oslo, 8 September, PhD student Ingunn Johanne Ness will speak at the final National Graduate School in Educational Research (NATED) conference about her work with groups and creative innovation processes.



NATED is a partnership between six Norwegian universities and one Norwegian university college. Co-ordinated by the Faculty of Educational Sciences, University of Oslo, it is a national graduate school offering specialised education and training in thematic fields central to educational knowledge.


NATED has 4 thematic tracks

Track 1: Language development, text comprehension and literacy

Track 2: Teaching, learning, and subject domains

Track 3: Educational leadership, school reform and education governance

Track 4: Higher education and professional learning


NATED has been a very important arena for educational research in Norway and has helped provide candidates with excellent training with an international orientation. NATED candidates are well prepared for their future research careers, which, in turn, bode well for the future development of Norwegian educational research.


At the 8 September 8 closing conference in Oslo, all present and former candidates and their supervisors have been invited. The main objective of the conference is to communicate the results of NATED activities, particularly the research the candidates have produced.


PhD student Ingunn Johanne Ness is one of two who has been asked to represent Track 4. She will be presenting her work on “the room of opportunity”. Her research studied creative knowledge processes and showed that multi-disciplinary groups engaged in innovative, creative, and problem-solving processes passed through distinct but common phases of which 3 could be described as being the room of opportunity. This research will be put to practice as Ness continues her work as a post-doc in the multi-disciplinary research centre, SLATE.


Ness is looking forward to the opportunity to present her work as the conference could be a good occasion to add to and build networks.
