Biography

This paragraph is not available in English, therefore the Swedish version is shown.

Dr. Eckerdal received her MSc and PhD from Uppsala University, Sweden. Eckerdal's research has focused on how programming students learn concepts and practical skills in the lab, but include research e.g. on threshold concepts in computer science, how academics and students perceive MOOCs, and how students learn software design.

Eckerdal has received research grants from The Swedish Research Council and ACM SIGCSE and is currently leading a research project on learning and brain, collaborating with researchers in neuro science. She is active in the international research community, serving on the programme and organising committees of several major conferences, initiating long standing research collaborations Sweden Group, and has invited a number of international known researchers to UpCERG. Eckerdal has more than 50 publications.

Eckerdal has served on the IT department board, as member of the Uppsala University Academic Senate, and Uppsala University's strategic e-learning group.
