About Anne Algers

Anne Algers has her background in natural sciences (farm animal production, animal welfare and food science) but her recent work and publications are within educational sciences. She has an interdisciplinary approach and has been an academic scholar at Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences for more than 20 years. Her PhD thesis was in Educational Sciences within the area of digital technology and learning. Her thesis was entitled “Open learning in life sciences - Studies on work-based learning in food science and open educational resources in animal welfare”.

She holds a position as a senior lecturer in higher education pedagogy at University of Gothenburg and continues doing research, teaching and outreach about teaching methodologies in life sciences with a focus on sharing the responsibility of knowledge creation with students, industry and the society. Some of the teaching practices she has been particularly interested in are open educational resources, open educational practices, digital role-play games and work-based learning. She is also interested in citizen science and has done a systematic literature review on digital competence and digital literacy; thus applied IT and learning is a consistent theme.

Open learning practices can be seen as boundary objects between academia and society that carry a potential for learning. However, these practices also carry the risk of tension and contradiction, especially in contested subject areas. Tensions and contradictions have been analysed using the cultural historical activity theory (CHAT). Different processes such as the co-creation and peer reviewing of OER in contested areas and the implementation of student projects in work-based learning are tackling tensions between academia, industry, society and the student.

One subject area of interest is food ethics characterised by great complexity and considerable uncertainty referring to global challenges such as food security, climate change and issues like global health and animal welfare. When value stakes and system uncertainties are high, decisions are urgent, and facts and values are controversial in society an extended peer review outside academia is argued as being crucial. This extended review conducted by students and the public is one side of the coin of open educational practices and the sharing culture and access to knowledge is another and both are in focus in her research.

Anne is editor of a brand new Springer journal Food Ethics and member of the Global Open Graduate Network (GO-GN) and the teacher network in the European Society for Agricultural and Food Ethics (EurSafe). She is also a member of The Linnaeus Centre for Research on Learning, Interaction and Mediated Communication in Contemporary Society (LinCS) and affiliated with University West in the research group Learning in a digitalized region (DigitaL).
Anne is working at the unit for Pedagogical Development and Interactive Learning (PIL) and Department of Education, Communication and Learning (IPKL). At PIL she is a teaching in the courses for the teaching staff at University of Gothenburg.
