Welcome to my showcase ePortfolio where I share my research, learning and teaching experiences. I currently work as a teacher educator and education developer. I have a various background with a masters degree in entrepreneurship and business competence, over 20 years working experience as teacher. Since 2007 I have been engaged in professional and vocational teacher education and almost twenty years experience on eLearning.
I´m a Doctor of Philosophy (University of Lapland, Faculty of Education/ Media Pedagogy). As a practice-led researcher I try use social media as a way of exchanging and disseminating research information for my communities. My passion is learning design which promotes dialogical knowledge construction in a learning communities towards to deep learning outcomes.
Current research interest are authentic and dialogical collaborative knowledge construction, learning design, deep(er) learning evaluation and digital learning environments (incl. MOOCs, OERs, mLearning, PLEs, ePortfolios). In addition, I am keen to develop and research educators´soft skills.
My doctoral research bridges these fields and asks: how to authentic, dialogical collaborative knowledge construction steer into deep learning in digital learning environments?
