Welcome to the NORENSE-website
The Nordic Research Network for Steiner Education, NORENSE, started as an agreement of cooperation between the three institutions of Steiner Waldorf teacher education in Finland, Sweden and Norway in February 2007. The three institutions are the Snellman College in Finland, the Waldorf Teacher College in Sweden, and the Rudolf Steiner University College in Norway. The purpose of the cooperation is to support research and development within the Steiner Waldorf school movement, as well as in Steiner Waldorf teacher education.
At this website you will find information about our aims and strategies; academically published research on Steiner Waldorf education and related issues; ongoing research and PhD-projects; bibliographies of previous academic research; information about school development projects; announcements of upcoming conferences, and links to websites of related interest.
