  • Professor

Professor in Science Education.

In terms of teaching, research and outreach cooperation, I work mainly with pupils’ meaning making processes, teacher’s collegial learning and students´ development of professional skills.

The focus is often on the relationship between language- and knowledge development, where research concerns literacy: discipline disciplinary literacy and general literacy. When it comes collaboration, it often include practice development with schools / teachers and in teacher education and PhD education, I teach and guide with focus on support and strategies for language development.

Have a teacher certificate in biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics (grade 7-9) and biology chemistry, general science and environmental science (grade 10-12).
