I'm project leader for CeTUSS and a senior lecturer in Computer Systems. My special areas of responsibility are arranging workshops and be the driving force behind creating a community interested in the issues addressed by CeTUSS. Furthermore, I run a special project concerning internationalization of the course IT in Society.

My special interest is research concerning furthering of engineering education, especially the computing area. The main area is methods of education building on open ended group projects (OEGP) and how they can be done in an international setting (OEIGP). This research is to a large extent based on work within the Runestone Project, which was initially a three year project (1997-2000) funded by the Swedish national council of the renewal of higher education, and still running.

Anders is a lecturer at the Department of Information Technology in the area of Computer Systems and Computing Education Research at Uppsala University.

In CeTUSS my special interest is the dissemination of research results from Engineering Education Research.
My research centers on: students' learning of computer science. The ultimate aim of both activities is to offer tools to improve teaching in Computing and Engineering.

My role in CeTUSS builds on a long standing interest in improving teaching practice.
Facilitating successful learning depends on many factors, not least the sophistication of the conceptions of teaching and learning held by teachers and students. In Engineering Education there is a need for practical pedagogy as a means for contextualising more general research in teaching and learning in higher education. Contexualisation of teaching and learning theories within disciplinary specific subject matter helps to ease adoption of new teaching and learning methods.

In service staff development with a focus on engineering pedagogy is a major part of my CeTUSS activities. I have also developed a practical framework for studying the outcomes of teaching innovation. The framework is a part of a larger project to provide support for the development of a scholarly approach to learning and teaching in engineering higher education programmes.
