Background and activities

My main research areas are university-industry collaboration in IT education, employability and career readiness, computer supported collaborative learning, technology enhanced learning, computer supported cooperative work, rand eflective learning. In SFU Excited (Centre for Excellent IT Education) I am vice director and lead of the project "Career Readiness". Much of my research after finalizing my PhD degree has been in connection with the 7FP EU-project MIRROR on reflective learning in the workplace, in which I had a coordinating role related to theory/model building. I am chair of UDIT 2016, the educational track of the 2016 Norwegian IT conference.

Teaching (current and prior) includes collaboration technology, project work, software development.

My educational background is a Master and PhD degree from NTNU Dept. of Computer and Information Science. I also have a Master in Education from the University of Oslo. I have been working as a researcher at SINTEF and teaching staff at NITH (currently Westerdals Oslo ACT).
