Background and activities

Associate Professor in Biology, specializing in the teaching and learning of science, NTNU

From 2009 until 2013, I was the head of NTNU’s program, “Kompetanse i Skolen” (“Competence in School”). Thereafter, from 2013 until 2016 I was the head for Program for teacher education at NTNU. Previously, I was involved in a total of eight scientific projects and I was the leader on five of those projects.

My main interest is how learning can be facilitated and contextualised through practical work in school. 

Scientific publications

My research has been focused in two different areas. Before 2006, I published papers within the field of Ecology. I had, however, gradually been changing my research focus towards the teaching and learning science.

My research within teaching and learning has focused on how learning of conceptual knowledge in science can be contextualized. A special focus has been put on technology and design and the use of ICT and how to bridge the gap between students’ life both in and outside of school.
