Academic outputs:

I mainly publish in Information Systems outlets. As I have been working on developing a sociological perspective on technostress, I have also sent pieces to the European Sociology of Emotions conference. This allowed me to get in touch to that academic community and receive feedback and advice for further developing my research within Information Systems.

Students’ feedback:

For employment purpose, I can provide more detailed feedback reports. Here are a few snippets:

  • “I really appreciated Raluca’s lectures which brought in fresh wind”
  • “New ways of teaching – modigt. Jeg elsker Mentimeter og det blev anvendt godt (brave. I love Mentimeter, and it was used well) “
  • Velvagt præsentationsteknik. Bruger alternative metoder til plenumdiskussion, hvilket øger involveringen – også fra de mere stille på holdet. (Well-chosen presentation technique. Uses alternative methods for plenary discussion, which increases involvement – also from the quieter members of the team)
  • Underspillet humor og stort engagement, god ide at bruge et digitalt værktøj til fælles brainstorm og kommentarer (Subtle humor and big engagement, good idea to use a digital tool for plenary brainstom and discussion)

Below, you can watch a conversation piece about using Mentimeter, as a digital teaching activity for  large classes.

This is a podcast recorded at the IT University of Copenhagen, and a discussion with Assistant Prof. Martin Aumuller.
