The catalyst of movement : a phenomenological study in higher education teacher´s corporality in teaching (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den här masteruppsatsen är en vetenskaplig essä i den praktiska kunskapens teori. Den är ett försök till en fenomenologisk inspirerad studie i högskolelärares kroppslighet i undervisning på lärarutbildning. Mina forskningsfrågor är: På vilka sätt erfar högskoleläraren sin egen kropp och dess rörelser i undervisningssituationer? Vilken roll spelar den egna erfarenheten om sin kroppslighet i förståelsen av sin presentation? I vilken relation står undervisningens innehåll, det som ska undervisas, till högskolelärarens kroppslighet? På vilka sätt skapar högskolelärarens kroppslighet relationer i undervisningen?Undersökningen består av berättelser från min erfarenhet som lärare i dans samt filmade observationer och intervjuer av fyra andra högskolelärare på lärarutbildningen. Studiens metod och teoretiska bakgrund är fenomenologisk och baseras på den franska filosofen Maurice Merleau-Pontys arbete om levd kropp och intersubjektivitet samt dans och rörelse teorier om kropp, rum, tid och kraft av Rudolf Laban.I analysen av det empiriska materialet lyfter jag fram tre dimensioner av kroppslighet, presentation, gestaltning och relation som jag diskuterar i relation till mina valda teorier. Som en fenomenologisk studie beskriver jag först de fyra lärarnas erfarenhet av sin kroppslighet för att sedan reflektera på det som har visat sig. Undersökningens ändamål är inte ett snabbt svar på bästa sättet att undervisa. Istället är mitt intresse att verkligen försöka förstå hur kroppen och dess rörelser kan få en större betydelse inom lärarutbildning.

Abstract [en]

This master thesis has the form of a scientific essay within the theories of practical knowledge. It is an attempt to a phenomenological survey of higher education teacher´s relationship to their own corporality in teaching in a teacher education program. I investigate following question; In what ways do university teachers experience their own body and its movements in teaching? How does the teacher´s own experience of its corporality influence the understanding of the own presentation? What is the relationship between teacher´s corporality and the content of the teaching? In what way does the teacher´s corporality create relationships within the teaching?My investigation contains of narratives from my experience as a teacher in dance. It will also contain filmed observations and interviews with four other teachers in higher education at the teacher education program at the Södertörn university. The methodological and theoretical background of my study is phenomenological, based on the French philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty´ s work on lived body and intersubjectivity and movement and dance theories of Rudolf Laban about body, time, space and effort.Within the analysis of my empirical material I have high lightened three dimension of corporality; presentation, formation (creation) and relation, which I have discussed further in relationship to my theories. As a phenomenological study I have first tried to describe the four teacher´s experience of their own corporality and then reflect on the outcome. It is not my goal to present a quick fix answer to the best way to teach in relationship to the corporality. Instead my interest is to really try to understand how body and it´s movements can be a greater part of the interest and the curriculum of a teacher education program.
