Eliisa Leskisenoja: a PhD on enjoying school

Eliisa Leskisenoja defended her thesis in education at the end of September. She is among the first to finish a PhD in one of the University’s new interdisciplinary doctoral programmes. In her research Eliisa investigated how one can get children as excited about school as they get about hobbies or friends.
