STINT Teaching Sabbatical 2018


Here you can read some of my thoughts about planning and staying in Singapore during the STINT Teaching Sabbatical 2018.


Here you can browse though some of my current teaching at Umeå University, Edith Cowan University and Nanyang Technological University.


Photos can never truly mirror our experiences, but they can trigger our memories. Here are some snapshots of our time in Singapore.

I'm Thomas Mejtoft, an Associate Professor of Media Technology, appointed Excellent Teacher at Umeå University and, since 2011, acting as the director of the highly rated five-year integrated Master of Science program in Interaction Technology and Design at Umeå University. During fall 2018, I have the honor to be a STINT Teaching Sabbatical Fellow at the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore.

Below are some of my thoughts on the planning and the stay in Singapore.
