PH D Course on IT Design theory and research
This course was formally hosted by Blekinge Institute of Technology, but is a cooperative acheivement by informatics researchers at a number of different universities in Sweden who are cooperating within the D-Ringen project. The course was offered as a distance course in Informatics based on a series of combined lectures and seminars being broadcast via a video conferencing system (Marratech) to the participating universities during November 2006 - March 2007.
The aim of the course is to explore a number of different theoretical approaches and corresponding research practices relating to IT design and to support students in articulating and positioning their own research work within this field. The course can be taken as a master's level course or as a Ph D course. Design Theory course
The course seminars will be recorded and made available for course participants on-line on the course website within short.

Ph d course on accountability and it design
This Ph D course was run as part of the interdisciplinary research cooperation within the TANGO e-government arena. The seminars were open for both Ph D students and senior researchers. The course was jointly run by Yvonne Dittrich and Sara Eriksén during the spring of 2002, and resulted in a number of conference papers and journal articles by various participants exploring accountability as an issue for IT design.
