On January 2007 I enrolled as PhD fellow at Learning Lab Denmark, the Danish University of Education. My focus is on learning and change rationales following the introduction of an online project portal. The empirical field of study is the Danish construction sector. You may read more about the project on my official home page: dpu.dk/om/jehu (Danish/English).
In addition, the driving forward of the editorial, technical and design aspects related to the complete development and maintainance of the online magazine you are currently visiting, has been and continues to be a priority.
Before enrolling as a PhD fellow I was employed as research assistant at Knowledge Lab. I did research and development primarily within pervasive communication - i.a. embedded software, mobile devices, wireless networks technologies. At Knowledge Lab I was also involved in several research and development projects, among others an EU-funded project about media integrated learning.
Formerly affiliated with Rambøll Management, I worked, i.a., on an EU-funded study on the use of ICT for learning and teaching in initial Vocational Education and Training and an evaluation of the effects of the pedagogical PC-driving license that some 18,000 teachers have by now taken. The assignment was part of an overall evaluation of the ITMF programme (IT & Medier i Folkeskolen).
At the turn of the millenium I was assigned to the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers of the EU. My responsibilities here included maintaining the editorial aspects of the official homepage of that Institution. In the mid-90s I served as assistant in DG External Relations.
Further employment has been with Copenhagen Business College where I held a position at the Faculty of Higher Education. In addition, I co-managed a number of technical assistance projects held by the college's International Department.
As a M.Sc. graduate from the Department of Organization and Industrial Sociology of Copenhagen Business School (CBS). I have specialised in Strategy, Organisation and Management.
My thesis was carried out within the realms of Learning Lab Denmark, a cutting-edge research institution embedded within the Danish University of Education. The focus of my study was on "Cooperation in Virtual Networks".
In addition, I have obtained a Masters degree in International Relations from the Social Science's faculty of University Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and a graduate diploma in Marketing Management (also from CBS).
Finally I hold a diploma in Pedagogics from "Danmarks Erhvervspædagogiske Læreruddannelse" (DEL).
