Teacher Education


Certified teacher in philosophy, history and religious studies. Experienced teacher and textbook author. M.Sc. in Upper Secondary Education (2014) from Uppsala University. B.A. in History (2014) and B.A. in Practical Philosophy (2008) from Linköping University.

The primary focus of my lecturing has been directed towards subjects such as ethics, the history of education, the philosophy of education, epistemology, the philosophy of science and educational practices. Furthermore I have taught subjects such as leadership, organisation, grading, special needs education, the sociology of education and the psychology of education. I have also tutored students writing their Bachelor Level exam papers on the science of education. I am also a member of the Program Council for the Teacher Education Programme for Secondary School Teachers.

As an author I have published about 20 articles, in subjects such as history, religious studies and social studies, for Bonnier Education AB. I am also currently in the process of writing a book on the didactics of philosophy for NA Förlag that is scheduled for publishing in the later half of 2019.
