Research and development areas

My research interest is on the educational use of digital media and ICT in education focusing on developing learning designs and the importance in scaffolding teachers in the integration process. 

In my PhD thesis I have identified various learning potentials and challenges when teachers integrate web 2.0 mediated learning in their teaching practice. The thesis furthermore outlines a collaborative design methodology for the design of learning activities and learning processes that can be used to support teachers in their (re-)design of learning. 
My research also shows that there is a need to organize some kind of organizational support unit to scaffold and facilitate teachers’ design and implement their learning design. It is important as the “scaffolder” to have competences within the area of pedagogy and technology and keep in mind the philosophy: “We cannot design learning we can only design for learning” [Buus, 2016; Dirckinck-Holmfeld & Jones, 2009].

In my work and my research, I focus on learning design and ways to scaffold teachers in the process of design and integration. I contribute to the pedagogical and technological design and development of online and blended courses in collaboration with the professionals with the different domains. I am involved in research projects where we look into approaches in the scaffolding of teachers in these processes to gain more knowledge about how to organize and build learning designs that take the scaffolding of teachers into account.

I have worked with integration of ICT and design of virtual learning environments in different educational contexts (educational organizations, workplaces, etc.) with a focus on the educational and organizational opportunities and challenges faced.

I have conducted and participated in several development projects; both internal, national, inter-national and EU projects within my field of research, and I have experience as a certified project manager.

My specialties:

  • Scaffold and facilitate teachers integrate ICT in an online learning environment,
  • Facilitate pedagogical learning designs and development of virtual learning environments.
  • Integration of social media and web 2.0 in learning and teaching
