MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I have worked for the past 12 years with the development of net based study-circles in the non-formal adult education sector in Sweden. First as a Project Manager at the Swedish Council of Adult Education and for the past six years I have, at the Swedish Agency for Flexible Learning, been responsible for developing and running the national teacher development programme for folk high school teachers and study circle leaders in the area of flexible learning. As part of this programme we have developed a "Teachers Learning Plaza", a CoP for continuous pedagogical and methodological teacher development in blended learning. At the agency, I was also responsible for knowlwdge building and for contacts with the research field, national and international and also for editing the e-journal "Nät och bildning". I and Dr Ove Jobring at the University of Gothenburg, have a close collaboration researcher/developer, trying to further develop the CoP and relate the CoP to emerging net cultures, especially what we know as Web 3.0 and Personal Learning Environments.
