University lecturer

University lecturer on Animal Physiology

I work as a university lecturer in Faculty of Science and Forestry. My teaching is based on learner focused blended-learning (flipped classroom) and work-related methods (laboratory and project skills). My aim is to train the students to be able to use a large variety of teaching methods in their teaching careers and work related methods for students working in bio labs.
I have worked in four University supported teaching development projects and one continuous learning project. Year 2018 got the Good Teacher Award from the Biology Student Union and Excellent Teacher in Practice award from the University of Eastern Finland for developing innovative online-teaching.
