  • I see my teaching beliefs as necessarily dynamic. Yet, though they are continually changed by my reading, thinking, experience, and especially by my research, I have found that there are certain beliefs that I have held onto for some years.

    - Teaching Philosophy
  • For each course that I teach, I identify the concepts and procedures that I want each student to master. Then I develop a sequence of instructional activities intended to lead to that mastery. Students are expected to demonstrate conceptual mastery, not just to recognize or recall something.

    - goals
  • I believe that humans learn best when they actively construct their own learning on the basis of that which is presented or presents itself to their consciousness. Learners come to new meanings/ new knowledge by revising prior structures of knowledge to include the new. I actively engage my students both with new materials and new experience, and I strive to create an environment in which they may be open to discovering from them. Students are most open to new learning when they observe a tension between what they thought they knew and what they observe or sense they must know; the teacher's job is often to introduce that productive tension.

    - teaching Philosophy
  • My classroom management is based on the belief that those who are learning for real purposes and real audiences will have intrinsic motivation for learning. Uppsala students who have chosen to become graduates from this university generally know full well that they will become in the classroom in a few years. They have real purpose for their learning. In as much as possible, I provide my students with real audiences in the form of classrooms in which to develop teaching skills. Thus, I expect my students to act like teachers who will be professionals in a few years.

    - classroom management
  • While I do not believe in innovation for its own sake, I do treat each of my courses as an experience from which I, too, can learn something. The object is to find ways to teach more effectively with available resources.I try to follow the highlights of the literature on those aspects of university education that especially interest me

    - responsibilities
  • I believe that all human beings can expand their knowledge and improve their skills given the right circumstances. Therefore, my job as a teacher is to take students a step further in what they want to attain and to nudge them into endeavors that, from my perspective, seem important to their chosen futures. However, some students may have more difficulty with school than others because of the discontinuity between the culture of their home and the culture of the academy. Working class and minority learners or learners whose confidence has been lowered for some reason have more difficulty as undergraduates, and if they are to learn in academic arenas, they may need extra time and assistance, and they certainly need to understand the reasons why learning has been difficult for them.

    - teaching Philosophy
  • I would like to involve myself into designing, developing and teaching more cutting edge courses that will be suitable for present and upcoming generations especially in the Swedish society, who would like to study informatics and/or human computer interaction.

    - future aim
