Current PhD students:
- Marija Gajic

- Sondre Ninive Andersen (together with Geir Mathisen)
- Victor Wattin Håkansson (together with Stefan Werner and Ingelin Steinsland)
I am program responsible for the 5-year MSc in Communication Technology and Digital Security. (Norwegian: 5-årig Sivilingeniør/Masterprogram i Kommunikasjonsteknologi og digital sikkerhet) and teach the following courses:
- TTM4175 Introduction to Communication Technology and Digital Security
- TTM4115 Design of Communicating Systems
Selected Teaching Resources (for students)
Since 2018 I am excellent teaching practitioner (merittert underviser), and participate in the study program committee for university pedagogics.
In my teaching activities I try to use active learning and utilize some of our active learning spaces, especially by using Team-based learning or variants of it. See here a video of a talk about the TTM4115 course at Læringsfestivalen, or the corresponding article (in Norwegian).
My work applying TBL resulted in two learning modules that may be interesting for you:
- A 2-hour seminar about TBL that I offer around once or twice per year. (You can register your interest.)
- A 20-hour module about TBL as part of the pedagogic training program at NTNU.
Teaching Resources (for other teachers)
To help with my own teaching, I developed a few open-source programs that may be useful for some.
