Akademisk forsking må føregå utan tidsfrist og utan krav om profitt. Eg skjøttar mi rolle som professor ved Universitetet i Bergen slik at eg står mest mogeleg fritt overfor dei rådande meiningsregima. Eg vil ikkje verta forhåndsinkludert i nokon etablerte posisjonar, og dette er eit akademisk privilegium som eg tek på høgste alvor.

Arbeidet mitt er avgrensa til fire tema. (Lenkene i overskriftene tek deg til rett seksjon på mi norske nettside larsnyre.no).

Teknologi. Media inneber alltid teknologi, men likevel er det uklart kva teknologi er. Den heng fast i materialar, og er samtidig også formbar for menneska. Eg studerer samverknaden mellom teknologi og samfunn, og fordjuper meg i teknologifilosofi og andre faglege tilnæringar til kva teknologi er. Sjå eit intervju med meg om teknologisk determinisme, og undervisninga i kurset MEVI224

Mediedesign. Teknologiar endrar seg historisk, og det går an å endre, vidareutvikle og finne opp noko nytt. Det er viktig at forskarar også bidreg til utviklinga ved å laga konkret løysingar. Dette kan vere informasjonssystem, interaksjonsdesign og innhaldsproduksjon. Slike prototypar kan testast og forbetrast før dei til slutt vert presentert for offentlegheita. Sjå bloggen i Bergens Tidende og undervisninga eg gjer INFOMEVI173 og INFOMEVI270.

Persepsjon. Medier dreier seg alltid om at menneske opplever noko, til dømes å lese, lytte, sjå, eller å filme, skrive, spele inn. Mi forsking er basert på kvalitative intervju med vanlege folk. Viss eg ikkje snakkar med folk vil forskinga mi på persepsjon til slutt bli utdatert.

Kritikk. Universitetsintitusjonen tillet meg å sjå bort frå kortsiktige mål om popularitet, publikasjonspoeng eller profitt. Ein ekte akademikar er kritisk til alle hierarki, også dei i eins eigen institusjon. Eg skriv kritiske analysar av medieutviklinga i Norge, og i tillegg skriv eg bokmeldingar for Norsk medietidsskrift, New Media & Society og andre internasjonale tidsskrift.

Eg har valgt ein posisjon som er sosialdemokratisk, og basert på eit ideal om (delvis) sjølvberging, lokal innovasjonsevne og berekraftig teknologiutvikling. Dei siste tiåra har mediene i Noreg vore sterkt prega av ein marknadslogikk som set desse verdiane under press.

I have been a lecturer at the University of Bergen since 1997. I am responsible for three courses at the Infomedia Department, and they are presented in detail here. At the bottom you will find a CV of my teaching activities from 1997.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Infomevi173: Journalistic mobile applications

This 10 point course is based on innovation pedagogics, and the students are expected to be collaborate in groups of three to four. They are challenged to make a prototype medium with original content. The course is held in Norwegian.

2016: I år handla kurset om kameradroner. Studentane laga pitchvideoar til prosjekta sine, og dei er som følgjer:

dRIg: Prototype på en automatisert drone for journalister som drar ut på reportasje alene.

3Drone: Prototype på en automatisert 3D-modellering av drone.

SyncD: Prototype på et system for synkronisering av lyd og bilde for dronevideo.
 

2016: Oppslag på UiB sine nettsider om infomevi173.

2015: Video. Pitch video for ein smartklokke-app kalla "Hørbart", som informerer om aktuelle konsertar i Bergen med musikk og intervju.

2014: Oppslag på UiB sine nettsider om infomevi173.

Infomevi 270: Bachelor thesis in new media

This is the final semester for the new media students, and they have to make a big production during a 30 point full semester. Groups of students have internships in Bergen-based media companies, and are challenged to develop a media prototype that is useful to the company. They also write a 6000 word bachelor thesis. The course is held in Norwegian.

2014: Video frå Caroline Ordaz, student utplassert i Mobiletech.

2014: Oppslag frå NCE Media i Bergen om infomevi270.

The CRIStin list of publications is rather confusing, with no thematic organization. Here is therefore a digested CV of my academic writings as a single author and as part of co-authoring teams from my debut in 1997.

This list gathers my work into four main topics.
