Abstract [sv]

Denna aktionsforskningsstudie tar sin utgångspunkt i rektorers uppdrag som pedagogiska ledare och ansvariga för skolutveckling och dess undervisning. Viss forskning och vissa rapporter visar på ett utvecklingsbehov av att stärka rektorers uppdrag som pedagogiska ledare. I olika roller som verksam i skolan och i samarbeten med rektorer har jag själv upplevt att rektorer inte alltid har haft framgång i sitt pedagogiska ledarskap. Syftet med studien är att bidra med kunskap om det pedagogiska ledarskapet i rektors arbetsvardag. Arbetets utgångspunkt var att synliggöra vilka komponenter i praktiken som rektorers pedagogiska ledarskap består av, samt att identifiera hur rektorerna kan utvecklas för att främja ledarskapets effekter på skolans lärande. Tillsammans med rektorerna ville jag synliggöra rektorspraktiken genom samtal, text och bild. Resultatet visar hur fem komponenter av det pedagogiska ledarskapet kommer till uttryck i relation till rektorernas kontext. Varje komponent fyller en funktion, men även relationerna mellan dem och hur de tillsammans skapar en helhet för det pedagogiska ledarskapet. Implikationer för studien är att; rektorer måste öka sin kunskap gällande analysförmåga, skapande av helhetsidéer och utveckla en skolkultur som gynnar den, hur rektorer leder förbättringsprocesser och utvecklar sin dialogkompetens. Vidare bör kommuners utbildningsverksamhet, med utgångspunkt i skolans lärande, finna en röd tråd i utvecklingsprocesser från förvaltning till elev. Ytterligare en implikation är att ansvariga för lärarprogrammen bör införa moment i lärarstudenters utbildning så de stärks i dialogkompetens och systematiskt kvalitetsarbete, kopplat till skolans lärande. 

Abstract [en]

This action research study focuses on the task of headmasters as educational leaders responsible for the teachings and educations of the school. Some research and some reports indicate a developmental need to strengthen the headmasters task as educational leaders. In various roles working with schools and in collaboration with headmasters, I have experienced that headmasters are not always successful in their educational leadership. The purpose of this study is to contribute with knowledge concerning the educational leadership in the everyday work of headmasters. The starting point of the study was to make visible what practical components are included in the educational leadership of headmasters, as well as identify how the headmasters can develop in order to improve the effects of their leadership on the teachings of the school. Together with the headmasters I wanted to make visible the practices of headmasters through dialogue, text and images. The result shows how five components of educational leadership are expressed in relation to the context of the headmasters. Every component fills a purpose, and so does the relationship between them and how, together, they create a complete picture of educational leadership. Implications for the research is that; headmasters must increase their knowledge concerning analytical abilities, creating complete ideas and developing a school culture that benefits it, as well as how headmasters develop their dialogue skills and how they run improvement processes. Furthermore, the educational practices of municipalities should find a common thread in their developmental processes from administration to student, with a starting point in the teachings of the school. Another implication is that the persons responsible for teacher training should introduce elements in the education of teacher students aimed at strengthening their dialogue skills and their systematic quality work, connected to the teachings of the school.
