Academic interests

I am a PhD student in Geodidactics at Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo. I come from an educational background and have taught secondary education in the USA and Norway for 17 years. My current research is related to the development of Students as Partners practice, and I am also interested in the teaching and learning of students in higher education. In addition, I have been involved in the Science on Stage Europe network and am nearing the end of a project that prepares a curriculum for European secondary education that is linked to the UN's sustainability goals.
