We welcomes you to a webinar, in which MultiLEAP’s postdoctoral researchers Tero Kerttula and Lauri Palsa will explore connections to multiliteracies research and practice within their respective fields of expertise. As a result, we aim to prepare an online event that will provide ample opportunities for discussion.

Tero Kerttula, a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Education, is currently researching audience reactions to representations of alcohol abuse in video games. His areas of expertise are in the fields of video game media, YouTube, other kinds of contemporary media and media education. Kerttula has previously worked in Transmedia Literacy -project in collaboration with University of Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona and defended his PhD thesis in Contemporary culture at the University of Jyväskylä in January 2022.

Lauri Palsa is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Teacher Education. Through the research project #RunningWithData, he takes an in-depth look at data literacy within the Finnish running community. This gives a possibility for an inspiring perspective to understand learning, being and the use and non-use of technology in the highly digital world. Based on his experience in public administration focusing on the policy development and media literacy, Palsa is fascinated with finding new solutions for research-based practice and building bridges between the various sectors of society.
