The Norwegian National Research School in Teacher Education

NAFOL is a national research school offering specialised education and training in the thematic fields of pre-school, school and teacher education, and was established to strengthen a research based perspective in the fields mentioned.

NAFOL is organised as a partnership between 9 Norwegian univer­sities and 8 university colleges, and is co-ordinated by the Faculty of Social and Educational Sciences at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim.

NAFOL gets support from NFR and is directly under PRAKUT research program.

Conference 2021

In anticipation of a safer situation concerning Covid-19, Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL) and NAFOL have decided to postpone the planned conference in Bergen in March. Possible dates for a conference are 9-11 November 2021, however, decisions will be made in light of the Covid 19 situation. We hope it will be possible for us to meet in Bergen by then.

NAFOL aims to provide PhD candidates with

  • Seminars
  • Conferences – national and international – in Norway
  • Economic support related to the above activities
  • Economic support related to research periods abroad

Lectures, discussions and written material connected to the seminars and conferences will be in Norwegian (as a main rule).

NAFOL receives funding from the Norwegian Research Council from 2010 through 2021.
