Teaching Experience


Since 2013, I have been teaching and organized workshops primarily at the Digital Design-education at Aarhus University, Denmark.

Within the fields of interaction design and digital art, I have experience in:
  • teaching on bachelor and master’s level
  • developing learning goals and teaching content for university courses
  • organising and facilitating workshops and group work
  • tutoring student projects and exams
  • organising pitch presentations
  • curating design exhibitions
  • examining and censoring

Teaching Philosophy


My teaching approach is based on active, motivated and experimental learning environments, student responsibility and critical thinking. I strongly believe that students learn more, when they are motivated and active and take responsibility for their own learning, and I believe an informal space, with room for exploring, challenging, critiquing and experimenting, can provide the settings for this. I approach students with an open and inclusive mind, and believe in an informal and personal relation between the students and teacher, where concentrated discussions about theory and practice are both manifested in lectures, group work and individual design projects.

Lecturer in ‘Design as a Critical Practice’
Aarhus University, Digital Design, master level

“Design as a Critical Practice” is a lecture- and studio based design course in which students learn about critical traditions, genres and methods of design, such as critical and speculative design, adversarial design, design fiction and critical making. Through readings, analysis of objects, workshops and their own design practice, the students learn to think critically and do criticism as part of their design practice. The course ends with a public exhibition of their critical/speculative/fictive design projects.

Instructor in ‘Alternative Design Materials’
Aarhus University, Digital Design, master level

In two interaction design courses, I have organized workshops for the design students in “Alternative Design Materials”. The students learned to think beyond apps and GUI’s, to instead use Arduino and Processing in combination with sensors, actuators, and smart materials. 
Instructor in ‘Digital Aesthetics’
Aarhus University, Digital Design, bachelor and master level

“Digital Aesthetics” is a theoretical and analytical course in which design students learn about the aesthetical and political role of technologies. As an instructor, I engaged the students in discussions on the course literature (from the field of software studies and computational culture), analysis of design and art objects, and excursions to exhibitions.
