Meet the iEarth Research Group – Anders Ahlberg

Anders Ahlberg

My name in Anders Ahlberg. I am an adjunct associate professor at the Department of Geosciences at the Arctic University of Norway (UiT) aside my permanent position at Engineering Education in Lund. My early career was devoted to geoscience teaching and research, in sedimentology. I then turned to educational development in the STEM disciplines, which in turn led to the development of doctoral education and supervision, and my current role as research education study director for the Engineering disciplines in Lund.

I currently organize the formation of the new iEarth Research group, where adjunct researchers, supervisors and doctoral students join efforts to create new knowledge with the potential to inform educational development in Earth Sciences. I´m also involved in the support of iEarth academic staff who prepare for educational rewards based on documented Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).

Recent publications include book chapters on aspects of development doctoral education and supervision:
