Resources for students
About this website
Digital change, Everyday life
This is my personal website centering on research and course delivery at the University of Agder, Norway, as well as my adjunct functions at several schools of journalism and communication elsewhere. The site contains my blog, a wide range of update pages and my way of collecting research resources for students locally and internationally. Much of what is found here centers on how our society is undegoing a deep digital transformation, driven my globalizing communications technologyes and affecting everyday life in deeply transformative manners .
Global media, Local change
My projects and courseworks reflect a basic framework of global media and communications dynamics catalyzing new learning interactions, new development practices, urbanization, city life, and new approaches to communications based planning. Behind all policy is planning and public discourse.
Global media, Local change
Over the past decade I have developed the social science faculty´s join course in science philosophy for BA students, a course now given in English. My other BA course is a 5th semester course in global political communication. At the MA level I teach an introductory course in globalization, and a second semester course in communication, strategy, rhetoric and social semiotics.
