Professor Guldberg conducts research in classrooms, with a focus on pedagogy, social learning and the specific learning needs of children and young people with autism. She has led a number of research projects working in partnership with autistic people, practitioners and parents to research technology use and the learning arising from this. Professor Guldberg is particularly interested in bridging the research-practice gap in autism education and in developing methodologies that enable knowledge co-production between research, practice and the perspectives of autistic people. Her research on good autism practice in education also focuses on the professional development needs of practitioners. Recent international research includes leading an Erasmus Plus strategic partnership (2014-2017) to research good autism educational practice in Greece and Italy, and conducting research for the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) on how to improve autism education in Qatar.
