Research activities

  • 2017-     VIVA (Visual Vocal Application), a project developing the VIVA recording application, enabling secure video and audio recording according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The project is funded by Department of Teacher Education and School Research at UiO, Centre for Professional Learning in Teacher Education (ProTed) at UiO and Faculty of Education at UiO.
  • 2019-     DIVA (Digital Integration of Video assessment in different Arenas), an innovation project developing learning designs for peer assessment, formative and summative assessment in higher education, in which digital technology (video) is being utilized as an innovation tool. The project is funded by Norwegian Agency for International Cooperation and Quality Enhancement in Higher Education (DIKU), Centre for Professional Learning in Teacher Education (ProTed) and University of Oslo

Completed projects

  • 2016–19    REDE (Representation and Participation in School Science), a design-based video research project aiming to develop research based teaching methods and resources that supports students’ understanding of representations in science. The project was funded by the Norwegian Research Council For more information: https://www.uv.uio.no/ils/english/research/projects/rede/index.html
  • 2017-18    PDC (Professional Digital Competence) in Teacher Education, a design based research project using a SPOC (Small Private Online Course) in Canvas to support teacher students’ development of professional digital competence. The project was funded by Departement of Teacher Education and School Research and Centre for Professional Learning in Teacher Education (ProTed)

Six countries participated in the project.
  • 2004–05    ReCoil (Resources for Collaborative Inquiry Learning), a European research project integrating existing digital learning resources and studies how students work with these in school. Five European countries participated in the project.
  • 2002–04    Viten.no, a design-based video research project developing a computer-based learning environment in science, in lower and upper secondary school. The project was located at the Norwegian Centre for Science Education. For more information: https://www.viten.no/eng/
