Ann-Kristin Sandberg

Ann-Kristin SandbergSince 2006, I have the privilege to work as an educational developer, at the Unit for Medical Education, which means that my main interest is now my job. Being an educational developer means, in short, that my job is to support teachers and supervisors to support student learning.
I´m involved in developing and operating our teacher training courses in pedagogy and also in different projects. I teach both face to face and distance learning courses.

I have a special interest in feedback and I have had several consulting projects on the topic. We need to design courses so that feedback is included and runs as a process through the training and where the learner also has responsibility to obtain feedback.

I have a background as a physiotherapist and many years of experience of being a teacher and course leader within the physiotherapy programme at the Karolinska Institutet and earlier in the north of Sweden. It was during my teacher training that the interest for pedagogy emerged and as a teacher in physiotherapy I was happy to be responsible for the (short) course in pedagogy for the physiotherapy students.
