Göteborgs universitet

I am a Ph.D. student at the Center for Educational Science and Teacher Research (CUL) at the Department of Applied Information Technology, Gothenburg University. I am also affiliated with the research school Upgrade. In the 90s, I qualified as a primary school teacher and then I have earned my master’s degree in Pedagogy/ Action Research.

My research interest is in students’ and teachers’ understanding of students’ different expressions of digital competence and its consequences for education.

I have worked as a primary school teacher for a long time and during a period I worked as an ICT facilitator. I have also worked as a middle leader in combination with teaching. During the last years, I have been a lecturer at the Department of Education and Special Education, Gothenburg University. As a teacher, I have had a lot of different foci, but one of them has been school digitalization. I have written a book, book chapter, and teacher’s guides on the subject and I have been giving lectures. There is still a lot to learn and I enjoy being a Ph.D. student and hope to be able to contribute to the research field.
