Communication Beyond Words : An ethnographic study on the impact of teachers' actio and non-verbal communication on students' motivation (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med detta examensarbete är att få insikt i hur lärarens ickeverbala kommunikation och actio påverkar elevers motivation. Utifrån en etnografisk arbetsmetod observerades en svensklärare på en gymnasieskola under fyra lektionstimmar för att undersöka hur läraren kommunicerade med sina elever ickeverbalt. Parallellt med observationerna intervjuades både läraren och eleverna som deltog i undersökningen. Undersökningen visade att lärares ickeverbala kommunikation och actio har en stor påverkan på elevernas motivation, att denna påverkan sker omedelbart och att den kan förändras under en pågående lektion.

När en lärare medvetandegör hur hon eller han kommunicerar med sina elever ickeverbalt kan aspekter som oavsiktlig och intuitiv kommunikation få en mindre påverkan på undervisningen. Detta bidrar i sin tur till att utveckla lärarens ickeverbala kompetens och på så sätt sin förmåga att motivera sina elever under hela lektionen.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to examine the influence of a teacher's non-verbal communication and actio on students' motivation. Based on an ethnographic working method, a Swedish-language teacher at a high school was observed during four lessons in order to examine how the teacher communicated non-verbally with the students of the class. In parallel with the observations, interviews were conducted with the teacher and the students who participated in the survey. The survey showed that a teacher's non-verbal communication and actio has very high impact on the motivation of students, that this impact is immediate and that it can change during an on-going lesson.

When a teacher becomes aware of how he or she communicates with students non-verbally, aspects such as non-intentional and intuitive communication have a lesser influence on the tuition. This, in turn, contributes to the development of the teacher's competence and capability to distribute his or her energy, thereby staying motivated and maintaining the ability to motivate students for the full duration of a lesson.
