I will fight for the conditions of temporary employees so that the University of Agder remains an attractive workplace.

Andreas Waaler Røshol

Doctoral Research Fellow

 - Why are you running for election? 


- Through my experience as PhD representative I have seen the importance of working towards meaningful changes. I have been a student and employee at the University of Agder the last seven years. I am driven to work long-term towards meaningful change.

What are your three most important issues?


• Fight for the conditions of temporary employees so that the University of Agder remains an attractive workplace.• Concentrate on the quality of system for education at the University of Agder with a special focus on the PhDprogram• Continue the work on how the University of Agder can be a digital university and how technology can elicit increased co-creation and be utilized to strengthen both education and research activities. 

- Based on your qualities and competence, why should your colleges vote for you?


- I have an interdisciplinary interest and curiosity that is evident in my education. I have a keen interest in how technology can be utilized creatively in both pedagogical and artistic contexts. In my work as a producer and songwriter under the artist alias AWR, I have acquired some experience on digital co-creation nationally and internationally.  Keywords for me are creativity, co-creation and technology.
