Annika Bergviken Rensfeldt is PhD and Senior Lecturer in Education at the University of Gothenburg and member of LinCS centre, the Linnaeus Centre for Research on Learning, Interaction and Mediated Communication in Contemporary Society as well as the University of Gothenburg’s strategic programme on Learning, the LETStudio. Based in the tradition of Sociology of Education, Annika’s main interests include critical approaches to Educational Technology and education and IT governance. Both these interests were a part of her thesis on the Swedish Distance and Higher Education governance in the 1990s and onwards. Furthermore, aspects of gender and gendered technology use has been a part of her research and she has developed research on the governance and changing disciplinary career orientations for Doctoral Education. Lately, the policy and governance interest has translated into studies on policy network formations, connecting public and commercial interests and actors within IT education policy.
Currently, Annika is member of a three-year research project funded by the Swedish Research Council, investigating how social media mobilizes teachers’ digital labour outside the formal school and workplace. Empirically, the project is based on advanced computational data on the interactions and norms of sharing resources within a large social media group focusing on the Flipped Education Movement.
