My teaching philosophy is "problem-based learning". I encourage students to understand and analyze the problem in depth before delving into solutions. I design my teaching activities relying on Intended Learning Outcomes (ILO), but also with a focus on developing critical thinking among students. I try to update my teaching practice and content according to modern theories of teaching in higher education and follow up-to-date pedagogic literature for the purpose. My teaching activities promote course materials, exercises, and focus on continuous feedback and enabling communication and cooperation among course participants. In essence, now I am in between a lecturer and facilitator in my classrooms but aim to become a complete facilitator in my teaching career. To learn more about my teaching plan, research and activities, please visit the About page of this website.
I am excited about the reviews on this portfolio that I have developed as a part of my development as a teacher. I am grateful to Tomas Jansson, the course instruction of AUPU2, other participants and colleagues, Magnus Johansson, the Director of Studies in Risk and Environmental Studies discipline and Max Hansson, the other fellow teacher of CCGA01: Nordic Climate Change Studies course, for their valuable input to this portfolio.
