Teaching

I have more than 300 hours (March 22, 2018) of teaching experience from lecturing and holding seminars. I am responsible for one introductory and one advanced course in research ethics, and for a course module on the ethics of medical technology (master and PhD level). I have visited various universities as an invited guest lecturer to teach research ethics, philosophy of science, and political philosophy. In 2018, I gave a presentation at the Eighth Cambridge Consortium for Bioethics Education in Paris, France.

Main responsibilities

Introduction to research ethics (3 ECTS)

This introductory course is given in the fall semester for master and PhD students. It has two tracks, one for students from the natural sciences and engineering and one for students from the social sciences and humanities. The course includes four lectures and two seminars. As a final examination, students write an essay on an independently chosen topic in research ethics. PhD students from other universities are welcome. For more information, visit the course website(s): AK2017 (MA) and 1N5115 (PhD).

Advanced course in research ethics (4.5 ECTS)

This course is for students who wish to pursue their studies further by writing a longer essay on an independently chosen topic. Students are entitled to two hour-long meetings with a supervisor (i.e., me) before submitting the final version of their essay. PhD students from other universities are welcome. For more information, visit the course website(s): AK2018 (MA) and 1N5119 (PhD).

Ethics of medical technology (1.5/3 ECTS)

This module is part of a larger course titled Theory and Methodology of Science (TaMoS), which is given by the Division of Philosophy at KTH. It includes three lectures and two seminars. All students write an essay on an independently chosen topic in the ethics of medical technology. The required length and depth of the essays vary between courses. For more information, visit the course website(s): AK2050 (1.5 ECTS) and AK2036 (3 ECTS).

Other teaching experiences

Guest lecturing

I have visited Uppsala University, Karolinska Institutet, and Jönköping University as an invited guest lecturer. The topics have been political philosophy, philosophy of science, and research ethics.

More

In addition to my course responsibilities, I regularly lecture and hold seminars in topics such as engineering ethics, animal ethics, the ethics of genetically modified crops (GMO), and transhumanism. I also teach normative ethics, with special focus on deontology (rights, duties, contracts), and basic philosophy of science.
