Elevers beskrivningar av fenomenet pedagogik: En etnografisk studie
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
”Pedagogiska kvarten” is a project at Örebro University. It is a study that deals with the teachers’ perspective of pedagogics. When I came in touch with “Pedagogiska kvarten” I found it interesting to find out more about pupils’ perspective of pedagogics, since the teachers’ perspective already had been noticed. This study is inspired of “Pedagogiska kvarten”, hence the perspective of the pupils are what this essay will inquire into. However, unlike “Pedagogiska kvarten” this study uses an ethnographic approach. What create the base for this essay are materials found at a Swedish high school with a class of nearly 30 pupils. More specifically, observations and notes followed by interviews and recordings of pupils’ descriptions of “pedagogics”. The aim was to examine and investigate what the pupils’ perspective of pedagogics is and what meanings emerge in their descriptions. The research question therefore became “What meanings of the phenomena pedagogics appear in pupils’ descriptions of “pedagogics”?” This essay shows that the pupils’ descriptions of pedagogics can be divided into three categories. These categories are: Pedagogics is an encounter with the teacher, lessons structure and pupils’ participation. The conclusion is that the pupils’ meanings of pedagogics are associated with the teacher. Hence the role of the teachers becomes important.
