Background and activities

Background:

I work as an associate professor in English didactics at the Department for Teacher Education (ILU) at NTNU, and I do research on student teachers' digital competence development in teacher education. I am also the coordinator for the Kompetanse for Kvalitet (KfK) English 1 and English 2 Take Credit programme, course instructor and instructional designer of two online courses in English didactics (Take Credit, ENG6024 - Literature and culture in the classroom and ENG6014 - Writing in the classroom). In addition, I am the course coordinator and instructor of the Master's course EDU3084 - Digital competence which is arranged for Master's students in social sciences and foreign language didactics, and which I co-teach with Gunnar Grut. I also teach a PhD course in literature reviews with Rune Krumsvik at the University of Bergen (read more here: https://www.facebook.com/Phd-kurs-503921176474052/?hc_ref=NEWSFEED&fref=nf).

I am the leader of the research group New Technologies and Educational Design - NTED, together with Mari-Ann Letnes. I am always looking to collaborate with PhD students, MA students and fellow researchers on projects related to digital technologies in education.
