Academic Interests

My academic interests include professional learning and development as well as opportunities for learning by the use of technology. In my research I have been particularly concerned with simulations in professional training, computer supported collaborative learning and the social organization of learning and knowing.

I am a member of the research group Network for Interaction Analysis (NIA) at University of Southeastern Norway USN), and the research group TEPEE at OsloMet /USN. 

Current projects


I teach and supervise on several themes related to pedagogy in teacher education, learning in higher education, learning and technology, simulator training, interaction analysis and video-observation.

At UiO, I am part of LINK and the course Teaching and Learning in Higher Education
