8. Briefly describe yourwork with IT-supportedteaching and learning

Live@Lund är sedan flera år fullt ut integrerat i min undervisning. Det underlättar för mig att ha en kontinuerlig kommunikation med mina studenter under kursernas gång. Live@Lund är mycket lättanvänt och jag använder det till att bl.a. ladda upp välkomstbrev, anteckningar, introduktionsfilmer, länkar, studiematerial, tips etc.


Andra former av IT-stöd som jag frekvent använder mig av i min undervisning är ’flipped classroom’ som jag utvecklat med bla programmetKaltura.


I have been making video presentations (in Swedish and English) for LU manamagent team on The economic dimension ofSustainability” This will beused in education both forfaculty and students.
