Rolf Steier

Rolf Steier is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Education at the University of Oslo. His doctoral research focus is on the relationship between physical space and digital technologies that mediate collective learning experiences. This research is based in large part on an interactive project room about Edvard Munch at the National Gallery of Norway, in which he participated as a designer and researcher. He has a Master’s degree in Learning Design & Technology from Stanford University and has worked in a variety of museum contexts performing both design and research at science centers, children’s museums, and art galleries. He was awarded a Fulbright Grant in 2008 to come to the University of Oslo, where he explored children’s mobile phone use as a potential learning opportunity in museums.
