Research

The older system for Phd students meant that all enrolled students are enrolled for life. I am today not an active researcher but I have close to all ECTS for my Phd studies made. I still lack the course kvantitative research methodology, a hand in for the course in philosophy and my master thesis and the doctoral thesis itself.  

Teaching

As a lecturer I have several courses. Mostly I lecture in Interaction design, HCI-analysis, Enterprice systems (ERP), different case driven IS-projects and supervise bachelors in their candidate thesis. I have recently held courses in project management, evaluation of system methodologies, and strategic communication and use (SKDA22 at campus Helsingborg). Before this I have courses in Methodology Use, System design and Group Dynamics.

Ordinary work with reading and choosing new articles. Update the course material and so forth. I have been going courses as safety responsible (skyddsombud) at the institution. The work with ERP-Sim has continued. Also I have been lecturing for an Engineering company (free of charge) about system development methodology change, and it´s pros and cons. A success I might add.

6. Programme responsibility (name of programme)Not responisble

 

 

7. Additional work in education (e.g. planning, implementation, and pedagogical leadership)

Just got noticed that I am to create a digital course (of some sort). I am safety responsible (skyddsombud) at the institution. Are part of ERP-group (even though it is a slumbering group). Were until now (uncertain about the future involvement) part of GUCOM where all responsible course responsible discuss the courses. Have taken a small course in course administration in LADOK. 

 

8. Briefly describe your work with IT-supported teaching and learning 

Live@Lund are used in a natural and easy way. Still a lot of the communication are still made by face to face or e-mail. All lecture material are of course all updated and in accordance with the official frames. I still use KAS (course administration programme) successfully, but have more and more gone over to handle the grades directly in LADOK. Have continued to be part of the ERP-sim e-game at the institution. Soon I will learn how to create and maintain a digital course. 

 

9. Production of cases, publications on teaching and learning, teaching materials and textbooks

I have been involved in a thorough in depth reviewing of a course book in Project Management, with the title “Att arbeta med IT-Projekt” (To work with IT-projects) by Stefan Görling for the coming new edition of the book. 

Outreach

I have several guest lecturers whith whom I have interresting discussions. Abowe this I have a well developed social network in Linked In (a network for professionals). Here I communicate with professionals within our area. Many of my contacts are former students, so the communication works well and are oriented towards their knowledge about me and my interrests in their work and responsabilities. 

Research

I am not an active researcher but I try to hang on to it by reviewing. I have been part of the editorial bord for two journals EJISE and ERIES since 2014. In ECIS I have been part of the editorial board 2015-16 but have been uppgraded to Associate editor for 2017, for which I am proud. Also I have been an active reviewer for the ongoing STPIS since 2014 and now lately at the BIR-conference. Also, this time around (2018) for ECIS I have been Associate editor for another track (track 2) as well.
