Klas Karlgren's ongoing research: Medical interaction design studio (MINT)

Klas Karlgren

MINT - the Medical Interaction Design Studio - has a common interest in both analyzing interactions and work practices in medicine and healthcare as well as designing technology to support these.

The research can be described as 'design science research' and has a particular focus on technologies that can be used to support or analyze learning.

Our work can often be labelled as belonging to disciplines and topics such as interaction design, human-machine interaction, medical education, medical informatics, computer-supported collaborative learning, simulation training, debriefing, technology-enhanced learning, e-learning, mobile learning, learning analytics, contextual activity sampling, life-logging, interprofessional learning, team-training, critical care, collaborative knowledge-creation.

Through MINT, Karolinska Institutet is a partner of the European project Promoting Knowledge Work Practices in Education (KNORK).

In the project, KI is the leader of the project's research on developing collaborative knowledge work practices and technology in education.
