Lysing: Utvida samandrag
UDIT (Utdanning og Didaktikk i IT-faga) går av stabelen 27.-30. november 2023. Fristen for bidrag med full artikkel gjekk ut 1. september. No inviterer me til bidrag utan fagfellevurdering. Desse vert administrativt vurderte basert på
(utvida) samandrag. Utan fagfellevurdering gjev dei sjølvsagt ikkje publikasjonspoeng, men me trur at dei kan bidra minst like mykje til ein god fagdiskusjon på konferansen.
Samandrag aksepterte i år er særleg velkomne som fulle fagartiklar til neste år.
UDIT (Utdanning og Didaktikk i IT-faga) er nasjonal møteplass for vitskapleg publisering, diskusjon og utveksling av røynsler knytt til undervising og læring i IKT i høgare utdanning. Me ynskjer bidrag på eitkvart tema knytt til utdanning, læring, didaktikk, og bruk av IKT i læring. Om du har fått ny innsikt eller gode idéar gjennom utvikling av undervising og læremateriell, so er UDIT en arena for deg.
Konferansen skal vera fagleg og akademisk, men perspektivet er frå praksis og ikkje frå fagpedagogisk forsking.

- Artificial Intelligence Against Fake News: Workshop on Advances in Disinformation Detection (WADD)
- Disinformation in its many forms is an increasingly problematic threat to society. Automated detection of disinformation both online and offline have been widely studied with different approaches. Recently, advances in artificial intelligence have lead to more effective ways of building disinformation detection and prevention systems. This workshop aims at bringing together Norwegian researchers studying all aspects of disinformation in order to create a research community. It also targets the general audience who would like to gain more knowledge about the advances in automated disinformation detection. Considering the threats posed by disinformation, organization of this workshop offers a timely intervention that will lead to novel insights into the national disinformation detection research space.
- SecUre aNd Resilient digItal tranSformation of healthcarE (SUNRISE)
- Digital transformation in healthcare is the leveraging of advanced technologies to improving the delivery of care to patients and to coping with new requirements of such delivery, most notably the shift from hospital care to home care. While patient-needs-centric, it also necessarily requires changes and improvements of healthcare-related processes. Whereas various benefits of this transformation are broadly acknowledged, the increased connectivity; the huge volume of -sensitive- health information; and the lack of sufficient cybersecurity awareness and culture among both healthcare professionals and patients result in increased cybersecurity risk and make digital healthcare attractive to cyber criminals and prone to cybersecurity attacks such as phishing, ransomware, distributed denial-of-service attacks, and malware. The increasing connection of medical devices to the Internet, hospital networks and other medical devices expands the attack surface making the patient safety risks higher. The recent COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the interdependence and co-evolutionary dynamic of the cybersecurity and privacy risks in healthcare. All these have raised the need to develop new solutions to increase the cybersecurity and resilience of the healthcare sector and its supply chain.
- How to include sustainability and digitalization in teaching and learning
- Candidates from higher IT education will have an important role in solving the great societal challenges of the future. For this, the candidates need relevant competence on sustainability and digitalization. Higher education institutions in Norway are currently working to find the best ways to ensure that students in IT programs develop this competence. To facilitate these efforts, there is a significant need for teaching staff and study programme leaders to exchange experiences and build shared knowledge about good practice and useful resources related to sustainability and digitalization.

Associate Professor at Høgskulen på Vestlandet
From research to reality: Practical use of Generative AI
The talk dives into the evolving realm of generative AI, focusing on the impact and applications of Large Language Models (LLMs) like GPT.
Shifting from an era of intensive research to an age of practical deployment, LLMs have transitioned from “research mode” to “release mode”, providing powerful tools with significant real-world utility in scenarios ranging from customer service and education to research and development. We aim to highlight how organizations employ these tools to boost productivity, develop new solutions, and create competitive advantages, redefining the landscape of organizational IT usage.
We will also explore the frontier of generative AI, shedding light on some emerging trends shaping the field.
My teaching and research activities are motivated by two questions: “How do you turn machine learning models into machine learning solutions” (machine learning engineering) and “What’s the role of artificial intelligence in medicine and healthcare, now and in the future?” (medical AI).
At HVL, I’m part of the Artificial Intelligence Engineering group. I have a part-time position as a Senior Data Scientist at Haukeland University Hospital, where I lead the Medical AI activities at the Mohn Medical Imaging and Visualization Center. As a Partner in AkademiX, I collaborate with industry trying to bring research into practice.

Professor at University of Agder
Technology-based innovation for societal resilience
With society today being exposed to a complex set of risk and threat scenarios resulting from both natural and man-made hazards, technology is becoming increasingly important for supporting crisis preparedness, response, and recovery. Information systems are vital for continuous monitoring of evolving crisis scenarios, and for supporting coordination and decision-making among different organisations and agencies involved in joint operations. While progress is being made, research in this domain is still somewhat fragmented across different communities.
The talk will bring together some of the current research on technology-supported crisis management, providing examples and pointing to areas in need of further work. The focus will be on the use of technology for supporting collaboration and information sharing among stakeholders involved in crisis preparedness and response.
Bjørn Erik Munkvold is professor in information systems at the University of Agder and adjunct professor at Kristiania University College. He is Director of the Centre for Integrated Emergency Management (CIEM) at University of Agder, which conducts interdisciplinary research on technology-based innovation for societal resilience. Professor Munkvold has thirty years of experience on research related to implementation of ICT in different organizational contexts, with particular emphasis on collaborative technologies. He has conducted in-depth studies of implementation and use of technological solutions supporting enterprise collaboration and content management, virtual projects, knowledge management, enterprise resource planning systems and building information modelling, with an overall focus on contributing to effective deployment and use of the technologies. His current research focus is on how ICT can support collaborative work practices in the domain of crisis management and societal resilience.

How to grow a positive teaching culture through collegiality and SoTL
In order to create a coordinated educational development – not only for individual teachers and in individual subjects, but also across programs, professional environments and institutions – a collegial culture is required that goes beyond the individual, where teachers have a research-based and scientific approach to teaching and learning. In other words, they should have a Scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) approach. Many strengths of the research culture can also be adopted in the teaching culture, which benefit from being evidence-based, hypothesis-driven, and peer-reviewed. A key feature of SoTL is that university teachers approach their teaching much in the same way as they approach their research (Boyer 1990).
This presentation will show how a collegial and scientific teacher culture – a SoTL culture – can be developed both at department and institutional level with examples from Lund University, Faculty of Engineering (LTH) and the Centre for Excellence in Biology Education (bioCEED) at University of Bergen.
Roy Andersson works both as an Academic Developer and as a Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor in Computer Science at the Faculty of Engineering (Swedish acronym LTH) at Lund University. He has been working as an Academic Developer since 1998 and his main interest is in supporting academics to investigate their practice in a scholarly way, in other words supporting Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). He is the director for the Centre for Engineering Education at LTH including responsibility for the program of pedagogical courses for university teachers at LTH and he teaches in several courses himself. He is a member of the Pedagogical Academy at LTH since 2002. Since 2015 he also holds a part-time position as Senior Guest Lecturer/Associate Guest Professor at the Centre for Excellence in Biology Education (bioCEED) at the University of Bergen.
