Teaching portfolio

Teaching history

I started with teaching and supervision already as teenager – training kids orienteering. These basic skills of presenting the material in an appropriate way and checking whether the pupil has understood it are similar for sports-related teaching and academic teaching. As a student I was giving seminars and supervising undergraduates in lab courses. As a PhD student I gave presentations at conferences and the occasional lecture in my field of study for students at NTNU. After my PhD I was half a year temporarily stepping in for a colleague, having full teaching load and responsibility for a 10 ECTS course. In this course the students had to do a practical exercise. The examination was done by me orally. This provided the students with immediate feedback as well as I told me how well I had explained and supervised the practical exercises. I was the next 3 years teaching 2-3 lectures in my field of research. During this time I co-supervised Bachelor-, Master- and PhD-students. As senior post-doc researcher at NTNU I was also the main supervisor of a Masterstudent and co-supervisor of a guest researcher (he was at junior post-doc level).

Since my appointment at UiT my teaching portfolio has widened. My portfolio expanded from teaching at the Master- and Profesjonslevel (NTNU) to include now also teaching at the Bachelorlevel. I supervise also bachelorprojects, hovedoppgaver and I am the main supervisor of a PhD student and co-supervisor of two. In addition I am grading exams. Already at NTNU I have graded at the Masterlevel and one Masterthesis. At UiT I have graded at all levels, Masterthesis, årsstudium, spesialieringsoppgaver.

From autumn 2015 I am also responsible for a PhD course and accordingly the grading of the students. Looking forward to teaching highly motivated students the challenging topic of statistical data analysis.
