Learning Study in the Community School of Arts? : Skills Development in the Own Practice (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

In this study Learning study has been carried out as a model for skills development focusing teaching and learning processes for music teachers within the Community School of Arts. The model rests on variation theory to improve teaching and learning. The design of a Learning study consists of three video filmed lessons interwoven with continious monitoring and planning through collagiate dialogues. Work with Learning study starts from the choice of a certain aspect of knowledge, the learning object, and the identification of several critical aspects based on the pupil's current level of understanding. In the teaching situation, the teacher provides variation patterns to support the pupil’s learning.. The design of the model in this study is modified with a view to a better fit with the subject of music, and the context of teaching in the School of Arts.

Starting from the cultural-psychological perspective on learning and a phenomenographic inspired method, this study aims to describe the participating teachers’ learning through their Learning study. The teachers have experienced a development of knowledge in themselves as well as in their pupils. They have assimilated a language for reflecting on the process of teaching. Reflected experience has made the didactic interaction in the teaching process visible. The collegiate dialogue has contributed to the development of more variation in the tools used for teaching. Learning study is therefore found be a useful tool in the development of music teaching in the context of Community School of Arts when enough time, continuity and a qualified coach are provided.
