Teaching

I have more than 30 years of teaching experience in the Department of Linguistics and the Department of Icelandic at the University of Iceland. I have taught more than 30 different courses – undergraduate courses on Phonetics, Phonology, Morphology, Syntax, Corpus Linguistics, and Linguistic Meth­ods, and graduate courses on Phonology, Morphology, Syntax (both synchronic and diachronic). and Natural Language Processing. I have supervised a number of Master’s theses and co-supervised one PhD dissertation.

I have been active in developing teaching material and teaching methods. I have written textbooks on Icelandic phonetics, generative phonology and generative morphology for use at the university level. I was also a pioneer in distance education at the Department of Icelandic (and in fact at the University as a whole) in 1999. Recently, I have been experimenting with flipped teaching and with using MOOCs from other universities as an integrated part of my own courses.
