Work experiences:


Internship as designer:

An 11 week long internship at the end of my bachelor program, spring 2015. Creating a online course for CoachHuset to teach gamification. I designed the course to be four weeks long, compiled material, did research and created tasks for the students to complete. A pilot test was done and during that time I acted as authority on gamification, setting up examples, giving feedback and encouragement as well as sending out two weekly letters to the participants. The course was also iterated a number of times, even after my graduation.
