Department of Languages and Literature Studies
Campus Vestfold (D3-28)
Since 2017, I have been part of a team who have developed and taught a web-based in-service course for teachers (English didactics). I also teach a PhD course in academic writing, and I supervise master- and PhD candidates. My research projects have to do with historical perspectives on textbooks and teaching materials, participants’ experiences with a web-based in-service training course, and with the use of song in education.
