Michael Uljens

PhD Education, Åbo Akademi University

Michael Uljens is chair professor of General Education and Educational Leadership at Åbo Akademi University in Vasa, Finland (2003-). Michael leads an international research program Non-Affirmative Education (https://blogs2.abo.fi/nat-book/). His research mediate between Nordic, German and Anglo-American approaches to educational leadership, curriculum studies, Didaktik and General Education (Allgemeine Pädagogik).

Given that much leadership to its core is pedagogical, he argues for grounding educational leadership in education theory, yet supported by cross-disciplinary research. His most recent volume (in press, Springer) dives into the Bildung centered non-affirmative education theory. Empirically Michael works with research supported school development.
