Today I talk with Amir Haj-Bolouri, an assistant professor at University West, Trollhättan, Sweden. Doctor Haj-Bolouri research is mainly within the field of Information Systems with a focus on questions and phenomena conerning design, immersive technologies (e.g., Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality), philosophy, and learning.
Amir's research has contributed to the domains of Design Science Research, Action Design Research, E-Learning, theory and theorizing in Information Systems and philosophy in Information Systems. Amir cooperates with leading scholars and has recently published the paper "Revitalizing Thoughts on Theory, Theorizing, and Philosophizing in Information Systems" in the "Advancing Information Systems Theories Rationale and Processes" series edited by Nik Rushdi Hassan and Leslie P. Willcocks, and "Wickedness in Designing IT for Integration Work: A Phenomenological Account" as an upcoming publication in Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems.
Today we explore those thoughts from the perspective of younger scholar and talk about so what and what it adds philosophy to your paper, the importance of iteration , the need to be pragmatical and at the end we talk about the Eastern philosophies. With this I bring you Amir.
