About Ann-Sofie Hellberg

I am an assistant professor in informatics, employed at the Örebro University School of Business since 2008, with responsibility for the programme of Systems Analysis since 2023. I am passionate about knowledge development, challenging ways of thinking, turning things around to find new angles and new ways of doing things. I am driven by problem-solving, innovation, creative thinking, and making a contribution.

This permeates both my teaching and my research, which by the way are strongly connected as I practice teaching as research. The teaching becomes a research project, in which the goal is to improve the teaching, continuously and regularly, to follow up the results of course development systematically. Planning and development take place before course rounds, the course round provides data for new course development as each opportunity is evaluated and followed up, and so it starts again. Publication in educational journals and conferences is a natural part of this work.

Problem-solving and creativity are important parts of my teaching. As manager for the programme of Systems Analysis, I am responsible for driving the educational issues and ensuring relevant content. Recently, sustainability issues have received a lot of focus as I train systems scientists, a professional group that will play a key role in the transition to a more sustainable society. Technology development is part of this, sustainability is complex and requires systems thinking - which is exactly what our education aims for. The systems analysis program is an education that offers knowledge about people, organizations and how to develop technology to support them.

The use of AI tools is also a hot topic and it is strongly connected to sustainability. The use of AI tools has been portrayed as a disaster for the climate. The energy needed to train and run AI models is enormous. At the same time, AI tools can contribute to increased development, innovation and be part of the transition. Thus, both sustainability and AI use are complex issues, which require innovative thinking, an ability to see different perspectives, to think critically.

IK207G: System development project with Scrum and Extreme Programming, Intermediate course
IK208G: Interaction design, Intermediate course
