Marcelo Milrad is a Full Professor of Media Technology at the Department of Computer Science, School of Computer Science, Physics and Mathematics, at Linnaeus University (LNU) in Sweden. He is also the director of the Center for Learning and Knowledge Technologies (CeLeKT). His current research interests include the design of learning environments to support learning about complex domains, collaborative discovery learning and the development of mobile and wireless applications to support collaborative learning. Professor Milrad teaches undergraduate courses in media technology and computer science with a special focus on XML, web 2.0 and mobile technologies. He teaches also at the international master program on Social Media and Web technologies at LNU. In addition, Professor Milrad is actively involved in doctoral courses in the field of Technology Enhanced Learning.
Professor Milrad has published over 150 articles in international journals, refereed conferences, books and technical reports. He has also been presenting and giving lectures about his work in more than 40 countries worldwide. During the last years he has been serving as a program committee member in a number of international scientific conferences such as CSCL, ICALT, WMUTE, ICCE and mLearn. He is also an editorial board member in several scientific journals in the field of Technology Enhanced Learning. Professor Milrad has acted as an executive member of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Learning Technology (LTTC) and he is one of the initiators of the IEEE International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Technologies in Education (WMTE). During 2007, he was one of the steering committee members of the Mobile Learning SIG, a research activity that was part of the European Network of Excellence on Technology Enhanced Learning Kaleidoscope.
Prior to entering LNU, Professor Milrad has been working at Växjö University, the Research Corporation for Media and Communication Technologies, the Institute for Media Technology (IMT), the Center for Human-Computer Studies (CMD) at Uppsala University, Sweden and the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel. During the last 15 years, Professor Milrad has been directly involved in the design and development of multimedia based learning environments both in schools, universities and in industrial settings.
