About Thomas Hillman

Thomas Hillman conducts research and educates in the area of Educational Informatics and is Associate Professor at the Department of Applied Information Technology, University of Gothenburg. His work crosses the boundaries between the fields of Learning Sciences, Human-Computer Interaction and Science and Technology Studies. In his research, Thomas examines the ways that different technologies shape learning as an individual, social and cultural process. This work is relevant for understanding how we come to know in relation to technologies, how we might best design or adapt technologies to support learning, and how we might work with technologies as part of teaching and learning practices.

Thomas studied industrial design and practiced for several years as an industrial, interaction, and exhibtion designer before continuing his education in the social sciences and gaining a PhD in Education from the University of Ottawa. He recieved docenture (habilitation) from the Faculty of Education at the University of Gothenburg and has been a Visiting Fellow at Oxford Internet Institute at the University of Oxford. In 2018, Thomas joined the Department of Applied Information Technology. He tweets at @th0masi11lman.

Thomas Hillman's research relies on extensive use of digital records of the ways people interact with technologies and Thomas works to adapt and develop methods and tools for gaining access to and making sense of these activities. You can read more about his methods development work here.
