Fisnik Dalipi currently works as Senior Lecturer at the Department of Informatics at Linnaeus University (LNU). Previously, he has held the position of Associate Professor in Information Systems at the University of South-Eastern Norway, and two postdoctoral fellowships in computer science, at LNU in Sweden and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Norway (NTNU), respectively. Before joining NTNU in 2014, he has more than 8 years experience working as informatics lecturer and researcher at three different countries, namely Tetovo University and St. Cyril and Methodius University from North Macedonia, University of Novi Sad in Serbia, and Tirana University in Albania. He holds a PhD in Informatics from the University of Tirana (2013), a master degree in Business Information Management from the Free University of Brussels-VUB and Solvay Brussels School (2008), and a bachelor degree in Informatics from the University of St. Cyril and Methodius in Skopje (2004). Dr. Dalipi has been supervising students at different academic levels and has been involved in the development and curriculum preparation at bachelor and master level. He is actively serving as a program committee member and reviewer in many international conferences, workshops and journals.
Fisnik is responsible for the following courses:
- Introduction to Object Oriented Programming - 1ik143 (BSc)
- IS/IT for Organizing, Communicating and Coordinating II - 5ik501 (MSc)
He is also involved in teaching for the courses Web Management - 1ik424 (BSc) and Object Oriented Analysis and Process Modeling - 1ik003 (BSc).
He has participated in projects funded by Swedish Knowledge Foundation, Norwegian Research Council, the Regional Research Council of Norway and EU Horizon 2020. His current research interest revolves around learning technologies, MOOC, information security, user experience and applied artificial intelligence.
