I am currently giving approximately one presentation or lecture per month on topics related to eLearning and startup-companies, such as adoption patterns of this new innovation in universities and corporations, organizational aspects of startup companies, eLearning design variables, and possible future scenarios for this fast-growing industry.


"Professors' Adoption and Implementation of Problem-based Learning"
Adviser: Professor Edwin Bridges, Ph.D., School of Education, Stanford University

The study assesses individual change within an organizational framework, and is based on in-depth interviews with professors who were attending a seminar on problem-based learning (PBL) in 1993. It analyzes their journey through the innovation-decision process, specifically if and how they use PBL.


Numerous articles in the Norwegian magazine "Schola" (Published by the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research), for example:
  • "Livet etter eksamen": The use of problem-based learning in higher education
  • "Rissværing med kultursjokk": Life as a Fulbright scholar at Stanford University
  • "Problembasert læring i rektorutdanningen": The use of problem-based learning in educational administration
Since 1986 I have published approximately ten articles in Norwegian publications, such as "Musikknytt" (Music and Administration) and Aftenposten (Norway's leading newspaper) on organizational issues, leadership, administration, education and music.
