 I am an Educationalist with a passion for alternative Teaching, Facilitation and Assessment. I believe that learning should be engaging, fun and authentic  for the student. I therefore support PhD-students and faculty members in exploring exciting and alternative ways to facilitate learning amongst their students AND to create alternative ways for students to showcase application and mastery of their newly acquired knowledge and skills.

I further combine my passion for alternative teaching and assessment with the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) and gear my research projects in such a direction. My aim is to involve faculty members in SoTL-activities and collaborate across departments, institutions and continents.
