I am working as an educational developer at the university pedagogy centre (HPC), Luleå University of Technology, Sweden. HPC serves as a university teaching centre of excellence in higher education teaching. It is a meeting place for university teachers and serves as a driving force of higher education issues at the university. At HPC I primarily work with issues that concern information and communication technology (ICT) in teaching and learning. I have a professional background as an educational technology specialist and have been working as a university teacher. I have a Ph D in education with a focus on adult learning.
