Bakgrunn og aktiviteter
My main research interests are teacher education, professional development, mentoring novice teachers and assessment for and of learning.
I have worked as a school teacher for 18 years, before I became a teacher educator. I have acted as the Head of Teacher Education programs abroad as well as at the University of Bergen in Norway. From January 2015 I am the Head of the Norwegian National Research School in Teacher Education (NAFOL) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). I have been active in the European Association for Research in Learning and Instruction (EARLI), previously as the Coordinator for the Assessment and Evaluation SIG (1) and till August 2015 as the Coordinator for Teaching and Teacher Education SIG 11. I am a member of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) and of the International Study Association for Teachers and Teaching (ISATT) and sit on a number of international editorial boards for journals in teacher education and assessment.
During my career numerous articles, book chapters and books have been published, and I have been fortunate to have given invited talks in Australia, New Zealand, China, Dubai, Korea, Singapore, Africa, USA, South America, Europe, Israel, and Norway.
