Ann Ludvigsson is doing her research on leadership in school. The aim of Ann's study is to describe and understand how leadership unfolds in everyday educational practice in a school setting. The leadership is seen as a relational phenomenon, i.e. as being developed and given shape and meaning in the school context in which the leader plays an active role. The research focuses on the relationship between school leaders and teachers. In order to understand leadership, Ann is studying the school leaders' and the teachers' actions and the meaning they give their activities they are involved in when they develop their teaching approaches and ways of working.

Currently, Ludvigsson is involved in a research project on quality
within adult education. The project is financed by the Ministry of
Education and Research.
