Current research

Participation and learning in the library space is a my ongoing ph.d. project in which I examine how makerspaces support library agendas of active participation and lifelong learning. In the project, I combine surveys, interviews, and observations to understand practitioners practices, the users experiences, and insitutional implications. The project contributes with unfolding of scaffolding of learning, experimentation as an source of information, and practices to sustain creative spaces in organizations.
