What goes wrong when students reflect on their research methods

In 2017 Elena and I ran the IT3010 course at NTNU on the topic of qualitative research methods in computer science. This was the first time we had the course run as a realistic run-up to a research conference with papers presented by students. The last deliverable in the course was a reflection report where each student was asked to reflect on the who process. Here I want to summarize some tips to students after having graded this last deliverable.

My lecture on assistive IT for NEET youth

Today I had the pleasure to hold a ten minutes talk at NTNU medicine library’s welfare technology seminar. My slides are on SlideShare. The topic of the talk was how to use IT to help NEET youth back to work or education. NEET is for “Not in Employment, Education or Training”, and denotes a group of youth who have fallen out of school. Our initiative Yoin at SINTEF tries to build a consortium to work with this topic and this user group. Contact me if you are interested in the topic!
