About Dick Stenmark

I am a lecturer in informatics and works as a teacher and researcher at the Department of Applied IT.


The teaching takes place mainly at the Master's level where I have been involved in the IT Management program for many years now, which is now an international program called Digital Leadership. I have been responsible for both method courses, courses in IT infrastructure and the Master's Thesis course. In our Bachelor program Systemvetenskap, I do guest lectures, mainly with regard to research methodology and essay writing.


Research-wise, I am interested in organisational use of social media, primarily regarding information seeking and competence development. Together with one of my PhD students, I'm part of the DigitaL project, which is a collaboration between GU and University West.

Starting 2018, I'm also part of a Forte-funded project that studies the police's use of body worn cameras and what effects this has on their work practices, for example in terms of accountability.

Administrative tasks

I also serve as the Pro Dean of the IT Faculty where I am responsible for education and quality and reporting to the Dean and the Faculty Board. I represent the IT Faculty at the University Board of Education, the Committee for Doctoral Education, and the Co-ordination Board for Teacher Education, and is also a member of the Fubas steering committee.
