Research:Lars Uggerhøjs’ research focuses on the meeting between service users and social workers/systems and is primarily based on service user experience and the challenges, barriers and possibilities in involving service users in social work – with a specific interest in powerrelations and actor perspectives. His research approach is Practice Research and he has since 2008 published several articles and book chapters about this issue – as well as trying out different practice research approaches and projects. He has been one of the principal organizers of the four international conferences in Practice Research and a pivotal person in the international development and definition of Practice Research.
Teaching:Lars Uggerhøj has been teaching all through his professional carrier - as a presenter and keynote speaker at numerous national and international conferences, as a consultant in social work practices and as a lecturer at bachelor, master and doctoral level. Main topics have focused on his research topic and his practice research approach, but also social work perspectives, theories and methods.
Coordination and Management:Lars Uggerhøj has headed the Danish MSc in Social Science in Social Work for nine years. He has for 6 years been the Danish coordinator of the international Erasmus mundus programme ‘Master in Advanced Development in Social Work’ – a collaboration between UK, France, Portugal, Poland and Denmark – and he is now the head coordinator of the programme. He is the Danish coordinator of the ‘Nordic master in Social Work and welfare’ – another international master programme in social work, including partners in Norway, Sweden and Denmark. He is heading the ‘Practice Research and Service User Perspectives’ research network at Aalborg university, and has until recently coordinated the Nordic ‘Knowledge production in Social Work’ research network and the ‘Nordic/Baltic Doctoral Network in Social Work’ offering international doctoral courses. He is convenor of ‘The Special Interest Group in Practice Research’ in the European Social Work Research Association and coordinator of the Nordic FORSA (Research in Social Work) network on Practice Research. Lars Uggerhøj has been heading or been member of several committees and boards nationally and internationally over the years.
Publications:Lars Uggerhøj has published widely nationally and internationally on general social work issues, but specifically on the topics ‘Service User Involvement and experience’ and ‘Practice Research in Social Work’.
