Biosketch: Assoc. prof. Mona Lundin

Mona Lundin (former Nilsen) is a senior lecturer at University of Gothenburg and a guest lecturer and researcher at University West (2015-). Her general research focus is communication, learning and technologies in professional work contexts such as for instance food production industry, health care as well as education sector. Her research takes its point of departure in sociocultural and dialogical perspectives and the more specific interests concerns what happens when technologies are introduced to or put to use in professional contexts and hence, the consequences for how work is carried out and coordinated in everyday work settings. In her PhD work (2009) her interest was in professionals' engagement in and uses of web based educational environments in various forms of in-service training and further education. The major focus was to analyse the learning activities and conversational cultures that evolve in such contexts for learning. This work was carried out through the study of people working in food production industry and funded by LearnIT in cooperation with the Knowledge Foundation.

Current research activities

  • Flipped Education Movement (funded by Swedish Science Council 2015-2017) http://letstudio.gu.se/studio-3/flipped-education-movement
    This project aims to scrutinize the growing phenomenon of teachers’ engagement in professional development on IT outside the traditional structures of schooling as an institution. By adopting an innovative research focus to analyze teachers’ professional development, the project will contribute to both IT and school development. The project focuses on the example of a rapidly growing instructional practice that is centred on the use of digital technologies known as ‘the flipped classroom’.
  • Exploring the use of technologies in medical communication: the case of high blood pressure follow-up appointments (post doc funded by the Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research, finished March 2014)
    In her post doc the general interest is to explore the transformative role of technology in medical communication and the manners in which technology potentially can alter the social organization of communication and the relationships between health care providers and patients. Her post doc was also partially funded by and conducted as part of the University of Gothenburg strength area of learning research (LETStudio).

The above research work is also realized through her affiliation to University West and two research groups:

  • Lärande i en digitaliserad region
  • Learning In and For the New Working Life (LINA)
