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

STINT Teaching Sabbatical 2018

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 had the honor to be a STINT Teaching Sabbatical Fellow at the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. The Teaching Sabbatical program is the oldest and most prestigious of the STINT grants. Each year roughly 10-15 teacher in higher education in Sweden have the honor to become STINT Fellows.

During November and December of 2019, the STINT Fellowship adventure got a continuation when I got invited to NTU as a visiting scholar to work with research within the connection between interaction design and AI.

Below are some of my thoughts on the planning, teaching and stay in Singapore as a STINT Teaching Sabbatical Fellow.
