Annegrete’s subject specialisms include communication design, practice-led research, the design process, and visual methods. She has held a number of teaching positions since 2005; most notably on the MA communication design (2005–2010), and BA Graphic Design (2009–2011) courses at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, and MA Design at Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo (2006–ongoing).
Annegrete’s approach to teaching focuses on social and research-led design, encouraging students to explore their intrinsic motivations to guide their practice. Here, communication design is applied to facilitate a visual understanding and critical commentary of simple or complex issues around a given situation. This aims to enhance the students’ designer-citizen skills: the application of design thinking and visual methods to create engagement within local communities and the wider society.
