    Vilka faktorer påverkar intresset för att lära sig molntjänster för utvecklare hos studenter som läser webbteknik?2023Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Användandet av och övergången till molntjänster växer årligen hos företag och organisationer, COVID-19 har accelererat övergången till molntjänster betydligt men användandet av molntjänster hade redan en stark tillväxt innan COVID-19 (Flexera, 2022). Eftersom användandet av molntjänster har ökat kraftigt har det även ökat behovet hos arbetsgivare att söka arbetskraft med molntjänstkompetens. Molntjänster är ett brett begrepp som kanske inte är bekant för många men det är någonting många har kommit i kontakt med i vardagen, allt från iCloud, Google Docs och Facebook (Peterson, 2023). Detta är alla exempel på software as a service (SaaS), denna uppsats handlar om att undersöka de faktorer som påverkar intresset att lära sig molntjänster för utvecklare, vilket kan inbegripa Saas kunskaper men är mer inriktad att undersöka intresset att lära sig tjänster som platform as a service och infrastructure as a service. Exempel på det är virtual machines, databaser och molnbaserade webbutvecklar-miljöer för exempelvis webbapplikationer. Undersökningen bestod av en enkätundersökning som använde sig av UTAUT (unified theory of acceptance and use of technology) och TAM (technology acceptance model), två modeller som grundar sig i kognitiv beteendevetenskap för att undersöka faktorer som påverkar intentionen att använda och faktisk användning av teknologi (Venkatesh m, fl. 2003; Davis, 1989). Undersökningen kom fram till att den mest avgörande faktorn som påverkade intresse att lära sig molntjänster var om tjänsten skulle vara användbar i deras yrke och om den skulle vara användbar för dem

    Augmented reality inom tillverkningsindustrin2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    GKN Aerospace is today one of the world's leading suppliers of aerospace technology and components. They deliver to both small and large aircrafts and operate in 14 different countries. Continuous high demands on quality and the effort to always improve, have made it possible for the company to explore new opportunities to facilitate and shorten the lead times of components in production. One way of achieving this can be by including augmented reality (AR) technology in their workflow. This technology is about combining a virtual layer on top of your reality.

    The purpose of the study was to investigate how other operators in the industry are using AR technology, which design principles exist and then create a prototype in the form of a proof of concept to demonstrate how AR can facilitate the maintenance work of operators at GKN Aerospace. The study used a qualitative research approach to gain knowledge about how an AR application can facilitate maintenance work for operators at GKN Aerospace.

    The method began with an exploratory literature study followed by a semi-structured interview used for mapping the workflow. Consequently, a prototype was created which was then tested by a total of 6 employees, whereupon follow-up interviews were carried out to get more knowledge about each test user's perception. The selection was based on a convenience choice with the minimum requirement that the tester was an employee at GKN working on the manufacturing stage at their plant in Trollhättan, Sweden.

    The outcome of the initial interviews and e-mail communication with GKN resulted in the finding that the greatest potential for efficiency improvements by the prototype was in the troubleshooting process, by allowing an operator to identify defects using Microsoft HoloLens. The result of the user tests showed a positive attitude to future implementations of AR technology at GKN.

    The findings of the study show that AR technology has a potential role to play in the future when it comes to maintenance and troubleshooting. The study also shows that general design principles are well suited for AR applications as well. All participants in the study perceived the prototype as easy to understand and very intuitive. It also appeared that, even though the participants in the study posed positively to the AR-technology, they didn't think it could be implemented in the near future.

    Digital Work: Coping with Contradictions in Changing Healthcare2021Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Digital work is bringing significant change to all professions, as established work settings are replaced by remote work and digital teamwork and collaboration. Contradictions arise when work is no longer bounded in time or space and personal and professional life merge. This raises several issues. The issues include control of time, professional boundaries, and privacy and security. Healthcare is one area where digital technology is a growing influence on professional work, roles, and relationships. The medical profession demands constant learning as it undergoes accelerating advancements in both medicine and technology. This has the effect of a change in patient-physician relationships as patients access medical information on public sites and interact with providers outside the clinical setting.The research documents the effects of professional use of multiple technologies to interact, share knowledge, and coordinate. The research problem therefore addresses the blending of personal and professional technology use in healthcare specifically and the public sector in general, focusing on the impact of digitally engaged patients on practice.The aim of the thesis is to explore dimensions of digital work that arise from the use of digital technologies in daily work and learning, with a focus on the professional role of physicians.

    It poses the following research questions: RQ1) What opportunities and challenges do physicians experience from using digital technologies for work and learning and how do they view their role and expertise in relation to informed and digitally engaged patients? And RQ2) What does the analysis reveal about thecharacteristics of digital work, and its implications for professionalism? The topic covers dynamics between information, technology, and people, in the context of work and learning in healthcare. Therefore, the perspectives guiding the research lie at the intersection of multiple disciplines, like Information Systems, workplace learning and health informatics. The thesis adopts a sociotechnical approach wherein the concept of information system is understood broadly to comprise information content, social context, and specific technologies. For the analysis of the research data, it combines workplace learning theories with concepts from the information infrastructure, and infrastructuring literature to identify and analyze characteristics and contradictions of digital work. The thesis comprises five peer-reviewed research papers. The data comes from 15 semi-structured interviews, three focus groups and a survey of 148 Swedish resident physicians. The project is informed by an engaged research approach, including observations from longitudinal collaborative research, and development projects that involved physicians and other public sector professionals. By exploring and describing physicians’ interactions with multiple digital technologies as part of everyday work, the thesis responds to calls for research to capture the sociotechnical dimensions and effects of digital technologies on work beyond traditional standalone systems. It addresses a real-world problem that public sector healthcare faces, by providing contextual details and insights into how digital health technology and public information intervene in the patient-physician relationship. The findings suggest that digital work can be understood as a process of coping with contradictions, where physicians reconfigure professionalism through ongoing efforts to embrace the new forms of work without sacrificing core values. The thesis concludes with guidelines to address the transformation of professional roles and responsibilities, the new qualities and competencies required for digital work, and the need for interdisciplinary research and consideration of diverse perspectives for an appropriate design of sociotechnical medical systems.

    Towards Digital Collaboration in Daily Work: Knowledge Sharing and Learning in Healthcare2016In: Proceedings of IRIS39, Information Systems Research Seminar in Scandinavia, Ljungskile, August 7-10, 2016 / [ed] Pareto, Lena, Svensson, Lars, Lundin, Johan, Lundh Snis, Ulrika Lundh Snis, 2016, p. 1-16Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The ongoing digitalization of society is bringing working life and social life closer together, posing both challenges and opportunities with respect to communication, knowledge sharing and everyday learning. The overall purpose of this research is to contribute with knowledge of the role and potential of Information Technology (IT) in relation to learning in the working life for health professionals. The subject of this exploratory study is on the introduction of social technologies for internal communication, collaboration and knowledge sharing at work. The methodology is qualitative and the empirical setting is in the Swedish healthcare sector, involving emergency resident physicians and hospital management and administration. The findings suggest that the introduction of digital collaboration and networking sites have potential to increase collegial communication and contribute to knowledge sharing and learning. However, to achieve these positive effects, digital collaboration need to be integrated in daily practice and include new ways of working. This study also highlights that there is need for better tools and methods for continuous monitoring and development in this area in practical settings

    Challenges to learning and leading the digital workplace2022In: Studies in Continuing Education, ISSN 0158-037X, E-ISSN 1470-126X, Vol. 44, no 3, p. 460-474Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Digitalisation does not only transform material constructions of workplaces and work but also social constructions for employees’ interaction and learning at work. In this paper, we explore emerging challenges related to the digitalisation of workplaces aiming for an understanding of the changing prerequisites for working and competence. Our findings from a small qualitative exploratory study illustrate the complexity of the development of workplaces, characterised by strong but diffuse relationships between people, technology, and work practices. We argue that in the development of digital workplaces, a sole focus on information systems as new technology, along with training and education of their functionality is insufficient. First, the demand for new competencies in the workplace calls for understanding learning practices in everyday digital work. Second, leading the transition towards a digital workplace requires learning new leadership practices. Thus, an understanding of work rather than systems ought to be central in the future digitalisation of work, in which the systems are one part of development, not the development.

    The Workplace in Transition: Exploring Emerging Challenges and Demands for New Competence2017In: 10th International Conference on Researching Work & Learning: Transitions, Transformations And Transgressions In Work And Learning & Work And Learning Research Book of Abstracts, 6–8 December 2017 Rhodes University Grahamstown South Africa, Rhodes University, 2017, p. 104-104Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Digitalisation of society and the workplace is transforming the ways we work and learn. Not merely by automating existing tasks, replacing routine jobs and making work more effective, but also creating new tasks as well redefining competence, challenging and reshaping the professions. There has been renewed attention on the interplay between the social and the technological in context of digitalisation and recent trends toward self-service and IT consumerisation, i.e. blending consumer and enterprise technologies at work. Room is given to employees and customers rather than IT departments as leaders in the digital transformation, and research topics have evolved from computer-aided work towards reflections of the technological development and digitalisation in general. While there is no common definition of the digital workplace, one definition that emphasises the social, instead of the technological change is that digital workplaces occur when people collectively perform their work in digital, rather than physical work spaces, where the transition towards “peopleless offices and officeless people” brings new opportunities and challenges. In this paper, we argue that there is a severe need for a broader conceptualisation of the digital workplace, beyond focusing on specific IT applications or tools. The paper sheds light on emerging challenges related to the digitalisation of workplaces, aiming for an understanding ofthe changing prerequisites for work practices and competence. The research question is: What kinds of changes are emerging and how do they challenge the (digital) workplace? This paper reports on preliminary findings from an R&D project in Swedish healthcare and a follow-up focus group interview on the digital workplace. The research approach is qualitative and action-research oriented, with an aim togain knowledge through collaboration and intervention in real settings. Preliminary issues on emerging changes andchallenges related to the digital workplace are listed below.

    ¡ Flexibility, performance and workplace learning

    ¡ Transformation of work practices¡ Security and integrity issues¡ Leadership and issues of responsibility

    This paper has addressed challenges related to emerging digital workplaces. Clearly, as digitalisation increases, the conditions for work and workplace learning changes. Digital tools are already an integrated part of everyday work. Along with this integration, work practices have changed and new workplace norms, attitudes and cultures have emerged. The flexibility and simplicity that comes with constant access to information and support for collaboration and knowledge also demand leadership, teamwork and new competences. The broad implications of digitalisation illustrated in this paper point to the tendency to focus on technology (e.g. how to use a particular system) as outdated. The need for a socio-technical perspective that also introduces new ways of working and development of work practices is now unavoidable. We argue that in the development of digital workplaces,a sole focus on information systems, along with training and education from the systems’ perspective is insufficient. An understanding of work and its goals rather than systems oughtto be central. Thus, more focus is required on generating a joint purpose and the bigger picture, where the systems are one part of development, not the development.

    Egenmonitorering: evidenskartläggning genom sammanställning av systematiska översikter för utvalda diagnosgrupper2023Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    In Region Västra Götaland (VGR), the development of remote patient monitoring is given high priority, aiming for improvements for patients and reduction of healthcare costs. In this report we defined remote patient monitoring as continuous follow-up of relevant health-related parameters of patients located outside healthcare facilities (e.g. at home). Measurements taken by analogue or digital devices, objective and/or subjective assessments, are delivered digitally to the patient and to a healthcare professional. The healthcare professional provides the patient with feedback on the reported data (feedback may be automatically generated if data are within a predefined range). The plan in VGR is to introduce remote monitoring in selected diagnosis groups – some of which already started using remote monitoring.

    Aim

    The aim of this report was to provide an overview of systematic reviews regarding remote monitoring(as add on or replacement of visits in current standard of care) compared to standard of care in 25 selected diagnosis groups.

    Method

    In order to clarify how remote monitoring is intended to be used in the 25 diagnosis groups, representatives from the respective clinical areas were interviewed. As the scope of this project covered many diagnosis groups, the search was limited to systematic reviews (SRs) of randomised (RCTs) or non-randomised clinical trials. The relevance of each identified SR for our PICO(Population, Intervention, Comparator and Outcomes) was assessed by at least two project members (one clinical representative and one from HTA-centrum). Relevant SRs were assessed by at least two project members using SNABBSTAR, a tool developed by The Swedish Agency for Health Technology Assessment and Assessment of Social Services (SBU) for assessment of risk of bias/systematic errors in SRs. The tool consists of six steps and assessment of an SR is stopped as soon as the criteria for a specific level are not met.

    The steps are: 1. Definition of PICO and literature search; 2. Inclusion/exclusion according to PICO, listing of included studies; 3. Risk of bias assessments; 4. Evidence synthesis/meta-analyses; 5. Certainty of evidence consideration; 6. Documentation of excluded studies, conflicts of interest, and an a priori published SR protocol.

    SNABBSTAR evaluates how useful an SR is by assessing the methodology used in the SR. In the current project, SRs reaching at least SNABBSTAR level 4 were considered to provide relevant data synthesis. As reaching SNABBSTAR level 5 or 6 is considered necessary for reliable conclusions, we cited key conclusions only from SRs reaching these levels. We did not extract any data from the included SRs.ResultsThe literature search resulted in 3,332 hits. Of these, 279 were read in full text to assess their relevance for the PICO. Seventy-five SRs were considered relevant and were included; these were assessed by SNABBSTAR.

    Digitalization and Physician Learning: Individual Practice, Organizational Context, and Social Norm2020In: Journal of Continuing Education in the Health Professions, ISSN 0894-1912, E-ISSN 1554-558X, Vol. 40, no 4, p. 220-227Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    INTRODUCTION: The emerging context of online platforms and digitally engaged patients demands new competencies of health care professionals. Although information and communication technologies (ICTs) can strengthen continuous professional development (CPD) and learning at work, more research is needed on ICT for experiential and collegial learning.

    METHODS: The study builds on prior qualitative research to identify issues and comprises a quantitative assessment of ICT usage for learning in health care. A survey was administered to Swedish physicians participating in a CPD program as part of specialist medical training. Conclusions focused specifically on learning dimensions are drawn from correlation analyses complemented with multiple regression.

    RESULTS: The findings show that physicians' actual use of ICT is related to perceived performance, social influence, and organizational context. Social norm was the most important variable for measured general usage, whereas performance expectancy (perceived usefulness of ICT) was important for ICT usage for learning. The degree of individual digitalization affects performance and, in turn, actual use.

    DISCUSSION: The study highlights the need to incorporate ICT effectively into CPD and clinical work. Besides formal training and support for specific systems, there is a need to understand the usefulness of digitalization integrated into practice. Moving beyond instrumentalist views of technology, the model in this study includes contextualized dimensions of ICT and learning in health care. Findings confirm that medical communities are influencers of use, which suggests that an emphasis on collegial expectations for digital collaboration will enhance practitioner adaptation.

    Flipped healthcare for better or worse2019In: Health Informatics Journal, ISSN 1460-4582, E-ISSN 1741-2811, Vol. 25, no 3, p. 587-597Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The medical profession is highly specialized, demanding continuous learning, while also undergoing rapid development in the rise of data-driven healthcare. Based on clinical scenarios, this study explores how resident physicians view their roles and practices in relation to informed patients and patient-centric digital technologies. The paper illustrates how the new role of patients alters physicians’ work and use of data to learn and update their professional practice. It suggests new possibilities for developing collegial competence and using patient experiences more systematically. Drawing on the notion of flipped healthcare, we argue that there is a need for new professional competencies in everyday data work, along with a change in attitudes, newly defined roles, and better ways to identify and develop reliable online sources. Finally, the role of patients, not only as consumers but also producers of healthcare, is a rather formidable and complex cultural change to be addressed. © The Author(s) 2019.

    Co-designing a Digital Platform: Towards e-Health and Continuous Learning in General Paediatrics2017In: International Forum on Quality & Safety in Healthcare: 26-28 April 2017 ExCel London Conference Proceedings Igniting Collective Excellence, 2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    The study is part of a paediatric CPD program in Western Sweden, involving researchers and practitioners with expertise in medicine, informatics, and pedagogy. Based on previous experiences, the program provides a strong learning environment with extensive collaboration and networking among participants, while it is hard to maintain the collegial network and continue to share knowledge and experiences. Research has shown that new information technologies have potential to create learning opportunities and support reflection, collaboration and workplace learning. However, due to a history of IT-related problems in healthcare, where (despite documented benefits) many eHealth initiatives have failed in practice, health professionals are often less supportive towards such technologies. The research question is: How can IT be used for continuous learning and what are the implications of participatory design for the introduction of eHealth for workplace learning and use in clinical context?

    Method

    Inspired by participatory action research (PAR), the program is designed to offer a learning environment in which participants develop their paediatric and educational practices, as well as improve IT skills and digital competence needed as per today and in the future. In this new program a digital learning platform is introduced with the intention to contribute to formal course objectives but also to function as support for informal learning, networking and knowledge sharing during and after the CPD program, thus promoting long-term continuity of the educational outcomes. During the two-year course, the participants will develop a digital platform together with a Ph.D. student, for paediatric practice, present, and future learning as well as a web-based learning environment.

    Outcome

    The benefits of this project, where the focus is on eHealth as support for continuous learning, is for healthcare providers and physicians to be able to meet the demands and challenges for the future medical profession. The originality is that the digital platform in use is developed by the participants, integrated into the course and daily work and that the primary focus of the platform is to support continuous learning. This research is still in an initial stage (2016-2018), and findings are tentative. The project is linked to patient benefit, health professionals’ workplace learning, and continuous training. Children, carers or family members are not directly involved in this project, but the CPD program is built up around patient cases and focus on patient outcomes, in terms of improved safety and quality of care of the child.

    Conclusion

    There are potential difficulties recruiting paediatric educators to the program. This is addressed by supporting the participants in their role as educators and experts in outpatient paediatrics as well as regarding how IT could support not only learning a new subject or training skills but also learning how to learn. In summary, this project highlights the importance of interdisciplinary and practice-based research for continuous improvement and quality in healthcare, especially due to new demands following the patient-centric care and new role of patients, and sheds light on both benefits and challenges of integrating IT and learning in daily clinical work

    Abstract [en]

    The digitalization of the workplace and society at large brings new challenges for the field of Information Systems. A better understanding of how we learn with digital artifacts in our daily routines is needed. This paper is a literature review of how workplace learning has been addressed within the field, bringing together workplace learning and IS. The aim is to provide an alternative perspective to further IFIP 8.6 as a working group, where the suggestion is to re-image the group towards learning with digital artifacts. IS should be the leading field addressing digitalization of society. However, so far learning theorists has not been fully utilized within IS in fostering our understanding of how digitalization affects society. We argue that there is a need to explicitly talk about learning in IS and suggest IFIP 8.6 to be that place, which could contribute to advancements in our IS field in general.

    Sociotechnical Co-design with General Pediatricians: Ripple Effects through Collaboration in Action2020In: AMCIS 2020 PROCEEDINGS, Association for Information Systems, 2020, p. 1-10Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The embedding of digital platforms into professional practice has changed how people collaborate, learn and share knowledge at work. The healthcare sector provides an illustrative case for developments in this area. Through the introduction of a virtual collaboration platform in a continuing professional development program for pediatricians, this interdisciplinary research aims to promote continuity of the educational outcomes along with a better understanding of the usefulness of virtual collaboration and knowledge sharing at work. The research question is: How do pediatricians co-design and use a virtual collaboration platform for knowledge sharing and learning in action? The method is participatory action research, in which participants were co-designers of the content that was developed. The paper outlines some of the benefits and challenges currently emerging from the integration and use of virtual collaborations in clinical practice and provides design considerations on how to co-design content to use in virtual collaboration.

    Reconfiguring professionalism in digital work2021In: Systems, Signs & Actions: An International Journal on Information Technology, Action, Communication and Workpractices, E-ISSN 1652-8719, Vol. 12, p. 1-17Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Information Systems (IS) research and practice face ever more complex challenges as Information Technology (IT) for work expands beyond organizations and merges into everyday life. The COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 has amplified the need to understand digital work and its implications for professionalism. This study addresses that gap in the literature. The focus is on blended IT, referring to the fact that professionals today use personal and organizational IT interchangeably for work, while they also face a new situation of increased citizen involvement in their institutions through IT. This paper draws from three empirical public sector cases with the aim to contribute a deeper understanding of what digital work entails and how public sector professionalism is reconfigured by blended IT.

    The research question is: how is public sector professionalism reconfigured in digital work? Our findings illustrate this reconfiguration in three main ways: a) the personal and professional uses of IT merge,influencing professional autonomy; b) the incursion of patient and citizen IT into the scope of work challenges established views on knowledge and expertise; and c) altogether, balancing the streams of blended IT impinges on the core value of the common good that is characteristic of public sector professionalism. These three processes of reconfiguration outline professionalism in digital work.

    Tuning professionalism in the public sector2018In: AIS SIGPRAG Pre-ICIS Workshop 2018: "Practice-based Design and Innovation of Digital Artifacts", 2018, p. -3Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The digitalization in the public sector poses challenges for the professionals that have previously not been using digital tools as a part of their everyday practice. Building on three qualitative research projects this study shed light on contradictions and tussles, as well as possibilities re-lated to professionalism in the public sector. The three cases involve different professionals: cancer rehabilitation nurses, municipality communicators, and resident physicians. The paper aims to gain a better understanding of the impact of digitalization efforts on everyday work practices, and the emerging opportunities and challenges of using digital artifacts as a part of professional work. Our findings show how the transition toward digital work practices is pushing the professional boundaries of rooted professionalism in the public sector. The meaning of work and what it means to be a professional profoundly changes. The process of tuning professionalism in the public sector is not straight forward.

    The Fly in the Soup: A Critical Realism Perspective on the Role of the Engaged Researcher2021In: Socio-Technical Perspective in IS Development 2021: Proceedings of the 7th International Workshop on Socio-Technical Perspective in IS Development (STPIS 2021)Virtual conference in Trento, Italy, October 11-12, 2021. / [ed] Peter Bednar, Alexander Nolte, Mikko Rajanen, Anna Sigridur Islind, Helena Vallo Hult, Fatema Zaghloul, Aurelio Ravarini, Alessio Maria Braccini, 2021, p. 178-188Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Information Systems (IS) research and practice are constantly facing increasingly complex challenges through the design and development of new technology. The new technology is being researched through continuous engagement. This accentuates the importance of sociotechnical, engaged research through a critical view. However, the role of the researcher, and the engagement in research projects, is less researched. Taking a 'critical' view means to study the underlying mechanisms behind the observable, to understand change, and in this paper, we apply such a view to studying the changes in the researchers' role. This paper is based on the experience from four qualitative research projects, where we have studied four different public organizations and the technology-induced change of the professionals in these organizations.The four cases are conducted in Sweden and based on engaged research methods; an approach that draws on the perspectives of key stakeholders in a real-world problem situation to develop knowledge that might help address it. The underlying knowledge interest in this paper is understanding the driving forces behind engaged research, such as action research, how such research really is conducted and what the action entails and to shed light on some of the difficulties of engaged research while also discussing the complexity of the role. The research question is: what does the role of researchers in engaged research include over time? The main contribution is outlined in an in-depth understanding of the role of an engaged researcher whichis illustrated through four main 'trade offs' within the role.

    Decreased Memory Bias via a Mobile Application: A Symptom Tracker to Monitor Children's Periodic Fever.2022In: Studies in Health Technology and Informatics, ISSN 0926-9630, E-ISSN 1879-8365, Vol. 294, p. 915-919Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Memory bias, the tendency to rely on certain events over others, can become an issue in chronic illnesses, especially when symptoms are reported retrospectively. This paper examines a case where continuous symptom registration can be facilitated, memory supported, and memory bias reduced by introducing a mobile application. The aim of the paper is to report on the design of an app for collecting subjective data over an extended period to continuously follow children with periodic fever. The research approach is qualitative, building on interview data. The design method is co-design, a collaborative and participatory approach involving researchers, physicians and other key stakeholders, with focus on the views of the parents. We argue that collecting data continuously through an app moves the discussion from memory to the specific data points, which is illustrated through trends shown in the visualizations of the data. Moreover, we highlight the importance of systematically collecting data over an extended period through a data-driven approach to both forward clinical practice and research on complex, often chronic topics such as periodic fever, which is genuinely under-researched to date.

    The Intersection Between Information Systems and Workplace Learning: A Systematic Review and Research Agenda2022In: Proceedings of the 55th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences / [ed] Tung X. Bui, IEEE Computer Society , 2022, p. 5396-5405Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Information Systems (IS) research has extensively studied change in relation to digitalization. However, less attention has been paid to both individual and organizational change from a learning perspective. There is a need for a deeper understanding of how changes are fostered and how and why learning in the circumstances of digital practices occurs. This interdisciplinary systematic review shows how workplace learning has been addressed within IS, bringing together workplace learning theories and the field of IS. The results show that research on the role of knowledge in IS tends to rely on established and conventional theories without explicitly articulating the learning aspects. We call for more IS research that explicitly addresses digital change as learning. This paper provides a research agenda via three research directions for IS researchers interested in work and learning, aiming for a theoretical discussion to advance our field. © 2022 IEEE Computer Society.

    Towards Design Principles for the Three Phases of Physicians' Information Seeking Activities2021In: Lecture Notes in Computer Science, ISSN 0302-9743, E-ISSN 1611-3349, Vol. 12807 LNCS, p. 65-70Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Healthcare settings involve complex sociotechnical challenges, accentuated by rapidly expanding medical knowledge and technological developments. This entails a need for the professionals to continually seek information to update their skills and knowledge to solve problems in daily clinical practice while at the same time facing an increasingly fragmented health information environment. This research in progress paper addresses the real-life problem of physicians’ information seeking activities before, during and after a patient visit. The anticipated contribution is a set of design principles that a system for information seeking through these three phases should support.

    Why and When Physicians Google: Resident Physicians' Information-Seeking Strategies During Patient Consultations2023In: Studies in Health Technology and Informatics, ISSN 0926-9630, E-ISSN 1879-8365, Vol. 305, p. 580-583Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Physicians depend on access to accurate, up-to-date information and knowledge to make decisions and carry out their work. Today, access to online medical information has become easier than ever before. There is a stream of research interested in understanding how online health information intervenes and influences the patient-physician relationship. While many studies have focused on patients' online health information seeking, fewer studies have addressed how physicians seek and use online medical information. In this qualitative study, focus groups using clinical scenarios were conducted to examine why and when resident physicians turn to search engines like Google for medical information seeking at the point of care. The paper provides insights in physicians' perceptions and experiences of using digital tools for information seeking during patient consultations. Specifically, we identify and discuss information-seeking strategies of physicians during the patient consultation, contributing crucial knowledge for improving the quality of healthcare and patient outcomes.

    Designing for digital transformation of residency education: a post-pandemic pedagogical response2023In: BMC Medical Education, E-ISSN 1472-6920, Vol. 23, no 1, p. 1-10, article id 421Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: The forced transition to emergency remote teaching (ERT) during the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted health professions education worldwide. In Sweden, the need for alternative solutions for the training of junior doctors became urgent, as many of the mandatory onsite courses required for residents to qualify as specialists were canceled. The purpose of this study was to understand course leaders' perceptions and experiences of using digital technologies, such as video conferencing, to teach medical residents (ST) during the pandemic and beyond.

    METHODS: A qualitative study using semi-structured interviews was conducted with seven course leaders responsible for residency courses during the first year of the pandemic to capture their perceptions and experiences. The interviews were transcribed verbatim and analyzed using thematic analysis, drawing on the technology affordances and constraints theory (TACT) as a framework to explore pedagogical strategies and new teaching practices emerging from the forced use of digital technologies for remote teaching.

    RESULTS: The data analysis revealed affordances of, as well as constraints to, teaching specialist medical training during the pandemic. The findings show that the use of digital conference technologies for ERT can both enable and inhibit social interactions, the interactive learning environment and the utilization of technological features, depending on the individual course leaders' goals of using the technology and the situated context of the teaching.

    CONCLUSIONS: The study reflects the course leaders' pedagogical response to the pandemic, as remote teaching became the only way to provide residency education. Initially, the sudden shift was perceived as constraining, but over time they found new affordances through the enforced use of digital technology that helped them not only to cope with the transition but also to innovate their pedagogical methods. After a rapid, forced shift from on-site to digital courses, it is crucial to utilize experiences to create better preconditions for digital technology to facilitate learning in the future.

    Information Integrity and Human Infrastructure in Digital Health Care2019In: AMCIS 2019 PROCEEDINGS, Association for Information Systems, 2019, p. 1-10Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Healthcare informatics is undergoing major changes due to new infrastructures like social media that allow patients to proactively bring information to the physician consultation. We use the concept of infrastructuring to describe these changes, referring to the social practice of adapting human infrastructure for specific contexts. This poses informational and social challenges to providers, as they negotiate new boundaries with patients. Information integrity is essential because of risks to both parties. Infrastructuring in this case is the maintenance of information privacy and accuracy, or information integrity. The tasks of vetting information integrity and managing patient expectations add complexity to provider work even as physicians are positive about patients taking responsibility for their own health. The paper addresses infrastructure transformations, the process of infrastructuring, and a concept of information integrity. Using qualitative data from a medical setting, the study illustrates the contradictions physicians face in accommodating social media to their practice.

    Challenges of adopting blockchain technology in Higher Education Institutions2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Blockchain is a technology that faces challenges and needs to be stated to improve its adoption in organizations. Higher Education Institutions (HEI) are an industry where blockchain technology is not widely adopted. This study goes through the challenges of adopting blockchain technology in HEI. The methodology is based on a second study where challenges are found and a primarily qualitative study where interviews are conducted with Ph.D. students, lectures, teachers, and administrative staff from different countries to get additional information to be able to classify the current challenges in blockchain adoption in HEI. Challenges to blockchain adoption in HEI are classified following the Technological, Organization, and Environmental techniques: technology immaturity, limited interoperability, poor usability, complexity of integration, lack of scalability, privacy, security, data immutability, unavailability, lack of adequate skills, financial barriers, lack of management commitment and support, legal issues and lack of regulatory compliance, the market and ecosystem readiness, sustainability and ethical concern.

    Protocol for a randomised controlled trial to study cryoprevention of chemotherapy-induced oral mucositis after autologous stem cell transplantation.2018In: BMJ Open, E-ISSN 2044-6055, Vol. 8, no 10, article id e021993Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    INTRODUCTION: A majority of patients who receive myeloablative therapy prior to hematopoetic stem cell transplantation develop oral mucositis (OM). This adverse cytotoxic effect manifests as oral mucosal erythema and ulcerations and frequently necessitates high doses of morphine for pain alleviation. OM may also interfere with food intake and result in parenteral nutrition, weight loss and impaired quality of life. To date, there have been a few studies of evidence-based interventions for prevention of OM. Cooling the oral mucosa using ice chips in conjunction with chemotherapy is known to reduce the severity of OM although clinical application is still limited due to several disadvantages. The primary endpoint of this study is therefore to evaluate the efficacy of an innovative intraoral cooling device (Cooral) compared with ice cooling in reducing the degree of OM, in patients with myeloma or lymphoma.

    METHOD AND ANALYSIS: A total of 180 patients from four different university hospitals in Sweden will be randomised to ice or Cooral in a proportion of 1:1. The degree of OM will be assessed at eight intraoral locations, in accordance with the Oral Mucositis Assessment Scale and WHO scale. Patients will be registered beginning at admission and will continue until discharge or until day +28. The primary variable is analysed in a multiple linear regression model. The significance level used is 5%.

    ETHICS AND DISSEMINATION: The study protocol, questionnaire, diaries and letter of invitation to participants have been reviewed by the local ethical board in Göteborg. The trial results will be published in a peer-reviewed journal and disseminated to participants.

    Sagovärlden på Instagram: Vilken roll spelar användandet av Instagram hos yngre kvinnor när det kommer till social jämförelse och deras självkänsla2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Social media has grown and become part of many people's everyday lives. Instagram is a popular application due to its various functions where users can follow people and share their everyday life in the form of photos and videos. Previous research shows that the use of social media can contribute to reduced self-esteem and social comparison in younger women. This study has examined how younger women born in the 90s use Instagram.

    The purpose of this study was to investigate whether there is any connection between young women's self-esteem, social comparison and the use of social media with a focus on Instagram. The question has therefore been formulated in the following way "How is young women's self-esteem affected by the use of Instagram?".

    The study's approach to investigating this has been seven semi-structured interviews with women born in the 90s and are daily users of Instagram.

    The results showed that their self-esteem has at some point been affected by the content available on Instagram, but there is no indication that it is the way they use Instagram that affects their self-esteem. The respondents have experienced social comparison on Instagram which has contributed to both positive and negative effects on their well-being. According to the respondents, comparison on Instagram is something that happens consciously and unconsciously. Where part of the comparison can contribute to inspiration and motivation in the respondents, but it can also contribute to them feeling worse than other users because much of what is on Instagram is posted in a way where everything looks perfect.

    Abstract [en]

    Publishing information about children online has received attention and been discussed in recent years and has been given the name sharenting. There is no generally accepted definition of sharenting, it is seen as a term that includes the publication, transmission, storage or various different types of processing of private information concerning children via digital channels by a parent or any other individual responsible for the child in question. The purpose of our study is to create an in-depth understanding of parent’spossible motives for publishing posts on their children online and clarifying parents’ attitudes regarding sharing and their attitudes on social media. To gather the results qualitative interviews was held via zoom with ten respondents between the ages of 26-55 years with children 12 years and younger. Our study is based on four theories: Uses and gratifications theory which is based on explaining and understanding motives behind media use in the form of needs, identity theory which examines psychological needs to create one's own identity, privacy theory which is about building and expressing identity through users' security settings on social media and social penetration theory which explains why individuals choose to show openness or restraint.

    Abstract [en]

    In today's society it is important for a company to have a website that ends up being among the top results of a search engine, and it should have a good usability so that the user will visit their site instead of the competitors. The purpose of this study has been to investigate the reasons why a user visits a specific website when using a search engine. To find out, we have conducted a qualitative study where a few users have had to answer questions in a semi-structured interview about their search-behaviors and what is important to them when visiting a website. The results of the study have shown, among other things, the importance of ending up being among the top results of a search engine. However, it does not have to be the absolute top result that the user chooses to visit. It also turned out that the user quickly left a website with poor usability and that it is important to have a distinct navigation. Also, being able to quickly find what you were looking for is a very important part from the user's perspective. The conclusion based on this study is that the user values websites of the first result page more highly, but the usability also plays a major role in the final choice.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter addresses the questions of how to explore the knowledge and skills teachers need for effectively integrating technology in their teaching in an international study. It begins by underlining the importance of including technology-related knowledge in an assessment of teachers’ pedagogical knowledge for teaching in the 21st century. Then, it outlines the type of knowledge and skills teachers need for effectively integrating technology in their teaching and how these can be measured across countries. Drawing on previous research, different measurement approaches will be discussed. Despite a focus on teacher knowledge, the chapter includes suggestions for exploring teacher knowledge in the broader context of teachers' overall conditions, attitudes, and application of technology in teaching practice.

    Understanding the Meaning of Digitally Competent Leadership in Schools: a Review of Research2021In: INTED2021 Proceedings: 15th International Technology, Education and Development ConferenceOnline Conference. 8-9 March, 2021 / [ed] L. Gómez Chova, A. López Martínez, I. Candel Torres, IATED , 2021, p. 3095-3103Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The digitalization of schools is a multi-dimensional process, spanning many different areas from infrastructure and administrative routines to pedagogical issues, competence development, and student learning. Recently, digital leadership has been emphasized as crucial to reaching a fruitful digitalization in schools [1, 2]. However, there is a lack of systematic knowledge of what competencies are needed to lead such strategic work [3]. This study is a systematic review of research about digital leadership in schools in studies published from 2009 to 2019. The search was conducted using three databases to cover a board spectrum of relevant publication outlets including; ‘Education Resources Information Center’ (ERIC), Academic Search Premier, and Business Source Premier. Broad search terms were used to get a comprehensive search result, focused on locating results from different perspectives in the educational research field. The findings stress the importance of concretizing policies, having a coherent educational vision, and organizing for school development as key factors for cultivating the digitalization of schools. However, research that addresses what competence school leaders need to lead this strategic work remains limited. The contribution of the paper includes theorization about the meaning of digitally competent leadership in a school context, and future directions for research are discussed.

    Surviving or thriving?: Exploring school leaders’ perception of initiated digital transformation2023In: School Leadership and Management, ISSN 1363-2434, E-ISSN 1364-2626, p. 1-23Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The global pandemic, COVID-19 shattered everyday life as we know it and disrupted education globally. In this study, we explore an initiated digital transformation accelerated by the pandemic from school leaders’ perspectives in the context of Swedish high schools. The data consists of a questionnaire with 105 school leaders containing both fixed and open-ended response types. The results reveal significant differences in school leaders’ views on how the transition has worked, whether they and their staff have developed their digital competence, and, how it will affect the school onwards. Contributions include theorising about school leaders’ experiences of navigating an accelerated digital transformation prompted by the pandemic. We introduce four school leader profiles: (a) the enthusiast, (b) the affirmative (c) the skeptical, and (d) the hesitant. These profiles serve to encapsulate the nuanced perspectives of school leaders, thereby enriching our comprehension of their diverse requirements and priorities.

    Exploring technostress in disruptive teaching practices2023In: International Journal of Workplace Health Management, ISSN 1753-8351, E-ISSN 1753-836X, Vol. 16, no 4, p. 328-343Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – In this study, the authors explore teachers’ experiences of work during the pandemic using the analytic lens of technostress. More specifically, the authors investigate how the sudden transition to distance education induces technostress among teachers in relation to their teaching practice.

    Design/methodology/approach – The data gathering method constitutes a questionnaire that exploreshow teachers’ work situation was affected by shifting to distance education. 286 Swedish teachers answered the open-ended questionnaire.

    Findings – The results demonstrate how technostress creators, technostress strains and teachers’ coping strategies are expressed in teaching practice during an extreme case of digitalization.

    Originality/value – The authors contribute to the work on technostress by suggesting the theoretical concept of “technorest” to shed light on alternative effects of the digitalization of work practice. Furthermore, the authors give examples of technorest creators which the authors term “techno-shields” and “techno-security”.

    The results could be interesting to enhance the understanding of the digitalization of work practices and cultivate a more favorable work situation

    Adopting to the virtual workplace: identifying leadership affordances in virtual schools2023In: Journal of Workplace Learning, ISSN 1366-5626, E-ISSN 1758-7859, no 9, p. 22-37Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This study aims to explore virtual leadership work within educational settings in the light of social disruption. In 2020, a global pandemic changed the way we work. For school leaders, that involved running a virtual school overnight. Although there is a stream of research that explores leadership in solely virtual communities, there is a gap in the literature regarding practices that transition from analog to virtual practices and the changes in leadership in those types of work practices.

    Design/methodology/approach – The data gathering method constitutes a questionnaire to explore school leaders’ experiences of virtual work and virtual leadership in light of social disruption. One hundred and five Swedish school leaders answered the questionnaire covering both fixed and open questions.

    Findings – The results show that school leaders’ general experiences of transition to virtual school have worked relatively well. We show how the work changes and shift the focus in the virtual workplace.

    Originality/value – The author’s contributions include theorizing about leadership affordances in virtual schools and providing implications for practice. The authors summarize our main contribution in five affordances that characterize virtual leadership, including a focus on core activities, trust-based government, 1:1 communication with staff, structure and clarity and active outreach activities. The results could be interesting for understanding the radical digitalization of leadership in the digital workplace.

    Choice architecture, friend, or foe? Future designers’ perspective on the ethics of digital nudges2022In: 13th Scandinavian conference on information systems. 4, AIS Electronic Library (AISeL) , 2022, p. 1-12Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We make an abundance of choices daily and an increasing proportion of those choices are in an online context. Digital nudges refer to the use of design elements that guide the decision-making process towards a predefined goal. An important consideration when designing digital nudges is the ethical implications. In this study, we examine how future designers perceive ethics and the use of digital nudges as design elements in interaction design. We conducted a case study with 72 design students at two Nordic universities with a focus on the future designers’ perception of ethics and the use of digital nudges as design elements. We show that ethics and reflection on responsibility are highly important aspects of choice architecture design and future designers understand ethics as crucial for design work, yet few reflect on whether a specific design or a nudge is ethical or not. Moreover, when it comes to nudging as a design element, both positive and ambivalent attitudes are common. Our main contribution consists of an in-depth understanding of future designers’ perspectives on nudging, and we forward four fundamental questions which have implications for teaching the ethics of choice architecture to future designers.

    Challenges of Achieving ICT Competent Teachers through Continuing Professional Development: Teachers' perspectives2013In: Proceedings IRIS36: August 11-14 2013 at Gran, Norway, University of Oslo, department of informatics / [ed] Tone Bratteteig, Margunn Aanestad & Espen Skorve, Oslo: Akademika forlag, 2013, no 4, p. 103-117Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the problem of how to reach an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) competent teaching faculty in Swedish compulsory school.  Continuing professional development (CPD) is often used as a mean to increase competence in general among teachers, and is used for ICT initiatives as well. However, numerous studies have shown that previous ICT initiatives have not achieved sustainable change in teaching practices to the extend desired by policymakers. This study addresses the problem by investigating how such change initiatives can affect teachers in their every-day work. Therefore, we explore challenges and experiences, as perceived by teachers, related to CPD as a mean to achieve ICT competence into their profession. 17 teachers have been interviewed. The interviews were recorded, transcribed, and analysed by learning theories suitable for professional practices. Teachers’ expressed needs were well aligned with CPD methods advocated in research literature, but less aligned with previous CPD initiatives. Their expressed needs were diverse, reflecting their individual competence, length of teaching experience, personal motivation and learning preferences.

    Progression in Practice: Development of TPACK in didactical designs2015In: Proceedings of Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2015 / [ed] D. Slykhuis & G. Marks, Chesapeake, VA:, 2015, p. 79-86Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We report results from a three-year School Development Project in which digital technology supports cross-border collaboration and innovative models for teaching in virtual classrooms are designed. The study involved 22 teachers and 600 students in elementary school. The development and implementation of didactical designs were examined by using the TPACK model as an analytic lens. An in-depth analysis of 14 didactical designs, i.e., pre-planned sequences of lessons with specified learning objectives, in mathematics were conducted. We show how the TPACK model can be used to identify progression in practice, when didactical designs are studied in detail. We have been able to track progression in the didactical designs, where the TPACK components are becoming more integrated and balanced over time. We have seen examples of organizational development, in which teacher teams together with researchers built a productive community of practice around developing TPACK-based competence.

    Didactical designs in use: exploring technological, pedagogical and content knowledge2016In: Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Designs for Learning / [ed] Nortvig, A-M., Sørensen, B. H., Misfeldt, M., Ørngreen, R., Allsopp, B. B., Henningsen, B., & Hautopp, H., Aalborg: Aalborg Universitetsforlag, 2016, p. 253-268Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we operationalize the Technological Pedagogical And Content Knowledge (TPACK) model as an analytic lens to trace progression in teaching practice. We explore teacher development by studying didactical designs. Didactical design refers to the design of teaching sequences within a particular subject, and includes a pre-planned sequence of lessons, with a detailed teaching plan of how to implement the task in the classrooms. We report from a three-year school development project which involved 48 teachers and over 1000 students in elementary school. An in-depth analysis of 14 didactical designs in the subject of mathematics respectively 13 didactical designs in mother tongue was conducted. The analysis was based on classroom observations, video recordings, chat logs, online forums, interviews and participation in teachers'daily work. Our position is that our approach can serve as an effective way to categorize, analyzeand evaluate didactical designs

    Artifacts at Work: Internship, Learning and Technology2014In: International Journal of Sociotechnology and Knowledge Development (IJSKD), ISSN 1941-6253, E-ISSN 1941-6261, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 53-66Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on nursing students' internships and how the students are handling the tension created by expectations and dilemmas when using medical records (MRs) in practice. The overall aim of this study is to develop knowledge about what is required by nursing students in order to coordinate and sustain knowledge through the use of MRs. The theoretical approach to learning that has been adopted implies that learning takes place in social activities, and empirically this means that the study of learning and professional knowledge is a matter of studying activities where, for example, technologies are put into practical use, where experience and knowledge are brought to life. The data consists of observations of five nursing students during their second year in nursing school, interviews and ten video-recordings from shift reports. The result shows that nursing students regularly use MRs as a source of information and that they are struggling with transforming that information into action-oriented knowledge. The conclusion is that information systems such as MRs need to be understood and defined by teachers as materials and devices created or adapted to solving practical problems, and should be treated thereafter. Providers of education need to take into account the different types of intellectual or practical knowledge that professionals like nurses are expected to have, where the use of technology cannot be separated from, but need to be integrated into other aspects of knowledge.

    Framtidens lärmiljö2016In: ViLär 2016, konferens 8-9 december 2016, Vänersborg / [ed] Kristina Johansson, Trollhättan: Högskolan Väst , 2016, p. 2-2Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Dagens samhälle kännetecknas av social differentiering och globalisering och digitalisering, vilket på olika sätt utmanar traditionella sätt att organisera högre utbildning. För att möta dessa utmaningar arbeta vi i ett projekt att utveckla en såväl fysisk som kulturell miljö som är inkluderande, stödjande samt stimulerar lärande och delaktighet. Det involverar den fysiska miljön såsom möbler, ljud och ljus, teknisk infrastruktur men också social miljö, pedagogik och organisering av högre studier. Men vad innebär det att studera på högskola eller universitet? Studenters lärarledda studietid varierar självklart men enligt Högskoleverket (2010:20) har var tionde student som studerar på heltid högst fyra timmar lärarledd undervisning i veckan och knappt 40 procent av samtliga heltidsstudenter anger att de har nio timmar eller mindre lärarledd undervisning. Det innebär att studenternas vardag domineras av själv-­‐ eller gruppstudier. Detta ställer krav på hela studiemiljöns utformning och vi behöver t.ex. fundera över de gemensamma ytornas utformning så att de stöder både lärande och social samvaro för en differentierad studentgrupps olika behov. Vi menar att medan flera projekt och satsningar i Europa har haft studenten eller tekniken i fokus så är lärande utgångspunkten i vårt projekt, där teknik, infrastruktur och fysisk och virtuell miljö, relaterar till pedagogiska processer och aktiviteter som involverar flera olika aktörer. Lärandet omfattar olika aktörer såsom lärare, studenter, forskare och administrativ personal. I projektet utvecklar en inkluderande lärmiljö som stöder ett flexibelt lärande där olika deltagare möts och utvecklas och där mötena och lärandemålen avgör vilka resurser som behövs. Resurserna kan vara materiella såsom t.ex. digitala redskap eller fysisk miljö samt intellektuella såsom kunskaper eller relationer. Men vi tror att det är viktigt att flytta fokus till lärandet och den lärande, och att studera hur och i vilka sammanhang t.ex. de digitala möjligheterna kommer bäst till nytta. Vi ser teknik, ljussättning, möblering i lärosalar och gemensamhetsutrymmen som viktiga delar i utvecklingen av en inkluderande lärmiljö som utgår från ett emancipatoriskt förhållande där uppgiften är att stödja studenternas förflyttning till ett mer centralt och aktivt deltagande i samhällslivet. Frågorna får både pedagogiska och didaktiska konsekvenser och visar på områdets komplexitet, där vi kan utvecklas tillsammans och lärmiljön blir utifrån det perspektivet någonting mer än bara undervisningens innehåll. Vi tar därför avstamp i skolans vardag och de pedagogisk utmaningar och möjligheter som finns.

Gómez Chova, A. López Martínez, I. Candel Torres, IATED Academy , 2016, p. 6923-6923Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In contemporary society, questions are often raised about the relation between education and integration of immigrants and people with a foreign background. In that context, pedagogical efforts have been made to combine educational and social interventions, emphasizing issues of inclusion, mobilization and learning processes. The overall aim in this study is to identify and explain how pedagogical strategies with respect to inclusion processes has evolved at a school for adult Roma students. Such pedagogical strategies are seen as crucial for improving immigrant conditions and opportunities and the data collection took place at a school with an outspoken Roma-profile in Sweden. In all, eight teachers and one principal were interviewed and the following research questions are addressed: What are the relevant aspects of social pedagogy in inclusion processes? How are these social pedagogical strategies distributed individually and jointly in a school context? The results show how the historical roots and theoretical foundations of pedagogical thinking and action take place as a "facilitator" and guides the teachers actions. To recognize the students cultural belonging and having a dialogical approach works as cultural bridging which actually to some extent transformed the teachers daily work from teaching to also embrace cultural broking-strategies to enforce learning processes.

    Varför köper spelare mikrotransaktioner i datorspel?: En studie om kontexter som påverkar köpbeslut2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Over the past decade, the gaming industry has evolved and found new ways to make money. Today, they increasingly use the popular Freemium model, where the games themselves are free, but where there may be small purchases in the games that enable players to buy various items in the games for real money, so-called microtransactions. These microtransactions have today become a very large and important source of income for the game companies. The aim of this research is to create an understanding of why players choose and are motivated to buy these microtransactions and how it can affect their gaming experience. The study is based on eleven semi-structured interviews conducted remotely via the Discord platform. The result of our analysis shows, among other things, 4 main factors why players choose to buy microtransactions and these are Cosmetics & Skins, Crowdfunding, Pay to win, and Gambling. All of the respondents in this study had a positive attitude towards microtransactions overall but felt that pay to win should be removed from modern games today as they felt that it more spoils their gaming experience than adds anything.

    “Ja, det är väl just därför man delar”: En kvalitativ studie om Quantified-selfers uppfattning och erfarenheter om delning av aktivitetsdata i Runkeeper2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The study's purpose was to get an insight into what it is that determines the Quantified-selfers to choose to share their activity or not. Using interviews as a method i interviewed users of the app Runkeeper to find out their experiences and opinions about sharing. Depending on whether they where sharing or not, the questions were costumized and based on it to get the right information from the right person.

    I also made a content analysis from a facebook group for Runkeeper users so i actually could see what information they choose to share. The survey showed that depending if they shared or not, there were clear differences regarding what opinions they had regarding sharing, especially of sharing, especially on social media.

    Those who shared, saw the process more like sharing with others to provide motivition, but also to take part of other training.

    Those who didn´t share saw their training as something private and kept it for themselves. At the same time they were more willing to take part of training information others shared in runkepper/social media.

    Platforms and the public sphere2020In: 26th Americas Conference on Information Systems, AMCIS 2020, 2020Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Internet-based platforms present new opportunities for theory and design in Information Systems. The social implications of technological change have always been important, but new platforms, with their changes in negotiated social order and contending opportunities for freedom and control, require an explicitly critical perspective. If democratization is to be a feature of platforms, we need adequate distinctions for the design of these social/organizational spaces. Critical theory provides such a framework, and a way to sort out the disconnects between intent and implementation. Habermas’s concepts of the system, public sphere, and lifeworld provide a social philosophy that can directly influence IS research and design. Using health care trends that bring patient lifeworld and hospital system into closer contact, we illustrate a gap in conventions that arises, and recommend this gap be formatted as a public sphere.
