Academic interests

Teaching and supervision: Currently supervision of several bachelor, and master students in Mathematics Education. and is the main supervisor for three PhD-students in Mathematics Education. Some teaching at the doctoral program in Mathematics Education, and previous years I have taught kindergarten teacher students, teacher students, master students mathematics and mathematics education courses. Have conducted successful supervsion of one PhD-student in Mathematics Education (Inger Norunn Nergaard i 2016: "Local knowledge in mathematics teaching: A product of professional action").

Main research interest:
Children’s learning of mathematics in kindergarten and early years at school.
Use of digital tools in the learning and teaching of mathematics

The current leader (2016-2019) for the European Network for Researchers within Early Years Mathematics https://cerme11.org/thematic-working-group-teams/

Ongoing external funded research projects:
The Agder Project 
Researching 5 years old children's learning outcome from an experimental program with a playful inquiry based approach to mathematics in kindergarten. I contribute as developer of the experimental program, researcher and the main supervisor of a PhD-student (Svanhild Breive: https://www.uia.no/en/kk/profile/svanhilb).  External funding from the Norwegian Research Council (2014-2019): http://www.uis.no/research-and-phd-studies/research-areas/early-childhood-education-and-care/the-agder-project/

Digital interactive mathematics teaching
The project is a collaboration with schools in the area of Kristiansand and UiA, where I contribute as researcher and main supervisor of a Ph.D.-student (Anders Støle Fidje: https://www.uia.no/en/kk/profile/anderssf) and master students. The aim of the project is to develop innovative teaching in mathematics in a digital environment at lower secondary school. The DIM-project is funded by the Regional Research Funds in Norway Agder (RFF-Agder), under the category public projects (2015-2018): https://www.forskningsradet.no/servlet/web/prognett-rff-hovedside/RFF_in_English/1253976860326

MatRIC
Member of the steering board to MatRIC. MatRIC is a National Centre of Excellence for Research, Innovation and Coordination of Mathematics Teaching, and was awared UiA by the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education (NOKUT) in 2012. I am the main supervisor of a Ph.D.-student in MatRIC (Henrik Aadland Kjelsrud: https://www.uia.no/en/kk/profil/henrikk).
