LECTURES AND PRESENTATIONS
I am currently giving approximately one presentation or lecture
per month on topics related to eLearning and
startup-companies, such as adoption patterns of this new innovation in universities and corporations,
organizational aspects of startup companies, eLearning design variables, and possible future
scenarios for this fast-growing industry.
"Professors' Adoption and Implementation of Problem-based Learning"
Adviser: Professor Edwin Bridges, Ph.D., School of Education, Stanford University
The study assesses individual change within an organizational framework, and is
based on in-depth interviews with professors who were attending a seminar on
problem-based learning (PBL) in 1993.
It analyzes their journey through the innovation-decision process, specifically if and how they use PBL.
Numerous articles in the Norwegian magazine "Schola" (Published by the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research), for example:
Since 1986 I have published approximately ten articles in Norwegian publications,
such as "Musikknytt" (Music and Administration) and Aftenposten (Norway's leading newspaper)
on organizational issues, leadership, administration, education and music.
