She has worked at different academic institutions in Denmark, UK and Kenya and has been in charge of many local and national development projects within health promotion and medical education, including faculty development, research capacity building and policy making. She has previously set up and convened several interdisciplinary researchers’ fora, ie “Education across borders” (2010-2016) for researchers working with educational research and development, based at The Faculty of Education and St. Edmund’s College, Cambridge, and “The Arts & Sciences Researchers’ Forum” (2012-2016) a researchers’ forum for development of research in the cross lines of science and arts, based at The Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH), Cambridge University, UK.
Her main research expertise is within qualitative research, participatory action research, arts-based research, and process evaluation projects. The focus of her research has predominantly been on medical education in general practice/family medicine and health professions’ education and development, global health, research methodology development, research capacity building, faculty development, and lay perspectives on health and disease.
Charlotte has more than 25 years of experiences in teaching, facilitation of group-based development and learning, and educational as well as research supervision. She has delivered education at undergraduate and postgraduate level within medicine, for faculty and for researchers at all academic levels in many countries, as well as to interdisciplinary groups of health care deliverers and professionals from other academic environments. She has a long record of development and delivery of regional and national programmes/courses, development of teaching and learning materials and of leadership in educational development projects, all in several countries. The last 15 years she has used and continuously developed teaching and communication methods and strategies supporting tailored experiential learning and the embodyment of learning.
