Doctor of Computer and Information Science; works as a senior lecturer at the Department of Computer Science and Media Technology. Main focus on Educational Technology (EdTech), which is the study of how digital resources can be used and further developed to support all types of education, teaching and learning. This applies regardless of type, purpose or area of ​​use of the resources - in both public and private sectors, and at both organizational level and user level. The EdTech knowledge area also wants to provide deeper insights into various digitally supported methods for teaching and learning, including learning analytics, and different types of communication opportunities for teachers, students and parents. Furthermore, Educational Technology offers in-depth insights into digital administrative systems at the organizational level, as well as systems for data-driven decision-making for school leaders and principals.

Teaching

My main teaching interest is in the interdisciplinary area of ​​Educational Technology (EdTech). I am one of two program managers for the Master's program in Educational Technology, and I am also the course coordinator / examiner for a number of independent courses related to EdTech. I also supervise and teach in the bachelor's program at DM, Interactive Media and Web Technologies.

Research

Together with Professor Italo Masiello, I lead the research group called EdTechLnu at our department. The research within EdTechLnu has three main tracks:

  • Development of new technology to support education and learning.
  • Study of teaching and learning where students and teachers use digital technology.
  • Change of educational activities through implementation of digital technology.

The main focus of my own work within the research group is mainly related to the development of new technology to support teaching and learning, and to critically examine the effects of it, in order to actualize, change and improve education, teaching and learning at several different levels, both systemically / organizationally and user-centered.

My dissertation A Multimodal Seamless Learning Approach Supported by mobile Digital Storytelling - mDS (2018), focused on the interplay between design, information & communication technology, and learning, and resulted in a system called mDS, which includes a technical solution consisting of a mobile application and a complementary web service, together with a work method, for implementing mobile digital storytelling in various learning and teaching contexts.
