    VET teachers’ continuing professional development for industry currency in the initial occupations2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish VET was included in extensive school reforms in the early 2010s. However, VET teachers were not particularly involved in these reforms. They have also been relatively invisible in initiatives concerning teachers’ continuing professional development (CPD). Therefore, a project was initiated to explore teachers’ CPD concerning vocational knowledge and industry currency of competence from their initial occupations. The project applied a situated perspective on learning, identity, and boundary relations and processes. There were three parts: Analyses of participation in a national initiative, to let teachers up-date their vocational knowledge, e.g. through practicum in a workplace; a survey, with responses from 886 teachers concerning CPD activities related to their initial occupations; and interviews with 30 teachers.

     

    10% of all VET teachers participated in the national initiative during its two first years. The most common activities identified in the survey were reading vocation-related texts, study visits in workplaces, and work with students’ workplace learning. The survey also showed what values these activities created in terms of teachers’ vocational knowledge, networks, and development of teaching. The interviews showed the value of varying school-workplace boundary processes. Work with workplace learning, study visits, skills competitions, and other industry arrangements, created CPD opportunities and networks.

    VET Teachers’ Continuing Professional Development: participation, momentum and perceived results2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study concerns the continuing professional development (CPD) of vocational teachers and recognizes the dual professionalism of vocational teachers as having a particular focus on the professional development related to the teachers’ vocational subject areas. The study takes place in Sweden, in VET on upper secondary level. Swedish vocational teachers normally work full-time and spend most of their days at school, and how they meet the demands of contemporary vocational competence differ. They have varying opportunities and options for CPD, and this study explores to what extent and how the vocational teachers cross boundaries between school and other communities of practice to take part in various types of CPD. The vocational teachers’ perceived results of the CPD, as well as momentum for participation are also investigated. The analysis is based on survey data on vocational teachers’ participation in CPD activities and draws on a socio-cultural perspective on practices, identity and learning, and theory concerning adults’ participation in education and barriers towards this.

    Vocational teachers’ continuing professional development: a survey study2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Teachers’ subject knowledge is crucial for the quality of education. Contemporary work life changes rapidly, which challenges vocational education and training (VET) and teachers who need up-to-date vocational competence. This paper concerns VET teachers’ continuing professional development (CPD) related to vocational subjects and basic vocations in which they teach. The aim is to analyse teachers’ participation in varying types of CPD activities. The study draws on a socio-cultural perspective on practice, identity, and learning. Furthermore, the analysis is related to theory concerning adults’ participation in education, which shows how different factors influence participation in CPD. A survey was distributed to 2,000 Swedish VET teachers. The analyses are based on data on participation in different activities, barriers/drivers for participation in these activities, and perceived effects in terms of professional development.

    Results show similar patterns of participation between vocational areas, but with some significant differences between the areas. The variation in vocational areas does not have that much influence on participation. Reading vocational texts is the most common activity among those covered in the study. To read, and to work in the teacher’s basic vocation, are the two activities where variation in doing them could be explained to the highest degree.

    Editorial: The first issue of NJVET in a new shape2016In: Nordic Journal of Vocational Education and Training, ISSN 2242-458X, E-ISSN 2242-458X, Vol. 6, no 1, p. i-iiArticle in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Welcome to the Nordic Journal of Vocational Education and Training (NJVET). With this journal, we want to create a forum for research on vocational and professional education and training, with a particular focus on issues at stake for vocational education and training (VET) in the Nordic countries. The journal is published online and open access, and there are no submission or article processing charges.

    This is the first issue of NJVET in its new shape. We have put effort into the renewal of our website, submission and publishing system, guidelines for contributions etc. Altogether we hope that this will contribute to strengthening the quality of our journal, and also of Nordic VET research in general.

    In this first issue we can present contributions from four Nordic countries – Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. Nevertheless, relevant contributions from outside the Nordic countries are most welcome! We encourage publication of articles in English, which makes the audience of our research results much broader, but we also offer the opportunity to publish in the Nordic languages. In this issue, articles are published in English, Danish, and Norwegian. You should also note that we make a difference between research articles, which have undergone a double-blind peer-review by at least two anonym viewers, and magazine articles that contain other types of materials, discussions, minor studies of VET etc. The magazine articles are not subject to double-blind peer review, but are reviewed by the editors. We also welcome relevant book reviews. However, this issue does not include any book review.

    Qualification paths of adult educators in Sweden and Denmark2013In: Studies in Continuing Education, ISSN 0158-037X, E-ISSN 1470-126X, Vol. 35, no 1, p. 102-118Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The qualification of adult educators is a central aspect of the quality of adult education. However, within current policy discourses and adult education research on the professional development of prospective adult educators, little attention is paid to teacher qualification when compared to other fields of education and training. In this study, we analyse the qualification paths, or learning trajectories, of prospective adult educators in Sweden and Denmark. The analysis is based on narrative interviews with 29 students in training to become adult educators. The career paths of adult educators are often long and winding roads. Becoming an adult educator could be their primary desire, but it could also be their ‘Plan B’, a second choice. Individual motives and external demands interact in the professionalisation process. A shift in focus from teaching subject and methods to teaching context and the relation to the learners is part of the professional development. Finally, we argue that both academic studies and hands-on work in the adult education community are crucial parts of the adult educator’s qualification path.

    Marketization of Vocational Adult Education in Sweden2019In: Pedagogical concerns and market demands in VET.: Proceedings of the 3rd Crossing Boundaries in VET conference, Vocational Education and Training Network (VETNET) / [ed] F. Marhuenda & MJ. Chisvert-Tarazona, Valencia: European Research Network of Vocational Education and Training (VETNET) , 2019, p. 153-157Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The focus of this paper is the organisation of vocational adult education on upper secondary level in Sweden, and specifically the process of marketization that has taken place here since the late 1990s. Swedish adult education on this level, including vocational as well as theoretical courses, is organised by the local municipality, but with national governing policies including a national curriculum. However, the courses and programmes per se are not necessarily organised by the municipality itself. There is a widespread system of procurement, which means that courses could also be organized by varying other providers, typically private training companies. That is, there are both private and public providers, but the training is paid for by the municipality, which also decides who will be admitted to different courses and has a responsibility for the quality assurance.

    The difference between actual skills and formal qualifications: Potential for recognition of prior learning (RPL), or need for recurrent education?2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Our level of skills is associated with our educational level. However, even if there is correlation between actual skills level and educational level, the skills level varies also within a group with the same educational level. Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is a tool in adult and higher education, particularly aiming at giving recognition to actual skills and competencies not reflected in formal qualifications. RPL has been questioned, described as a measure mainly promoted in policy but with a comparably low demand in practice. This paper aims at analysing the potential for RPL, through identifying differences between groups with varying literacy and numeracy skills levels, but with same or similar educational level/formal qualifications. This analysis will identify this potential for RPL in the group with higher skills level than expected, ‘overachievers’, but also the need for recurrent education among those with lower skills levels than expected, the ‘underachievers’.

     

    The analysis employs data from the PIAAC study (the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies) in Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. The skills measure was constructed as an overall index of individual’s combined literacy and numeracy. It was extracted using the PIAAC data of the four countries together. Variables such as age, gender, social background, attitudes towards learning, and reported skills use at work and at home, were used to characterize the different groups of over- and underachievers. Binary logistic analyses were performed to identify variables which are significantly related with overachievement, contrasted with the ‘normal’ achievement.  The analyses were carried out independently for each educational subgroup and for employed and unemployed as well (because unemployed people had no data on the otherwise important job-related variables).

     

    The results show the influence of background, attitudes, and skills use, on the measured skills level as compared to formal educational level. For example, concerning cultural capital (number of books at home/parents’ educational level), it is shown that the higher the capital, the better are chances of being an overachiever (vice versa for underachieving). Further, more use of numeracy skills at home means better chances for overachieving (vice versa for underachieving). The use of numeracy skills was throughout the analyses more powerful ‘predictor’ than the use of reading, writing, or ICT skills. For the employed respondents, the results show that learning at work had a systematically negative effect on overachieving. The outcomes are further discussed in terms of if and in what groups there is potential for RPL, or need for recurrent education, in the Nordic countries.

    Vad betyder det att inte känna sig hemma där man är född och uppvuxen?: om mellanförskap i dagens Sverige2012In: Om ras och vithet i det samtida Sverige / [ed] Tobias Hübinette, Helena Hörnfeldt, Fataneh Farahani, & René León Rosales, Tumba/Botkyrka: Mångkulturellt Centrum , 2012, p. 37-42Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det finns rasistiska strukturer i dagens Sverige- Men flertalet av oss blundar gärna för både vithetens privilegier och den diskriminering som icke-vita svenskar utsätts för. Vår fysiska kropp påverkar hur vi blir bemötta, betraktade och behandlade. Därför måste vi börja tala om ras. Först då kan vi förstå de samhällsproblem som handlar om vardagsrasism, segregation och diskriminering.

    Med inspiration från kritisk ras- och vithetsforskning skärskådar tolv forskare med varierande akademisk bakgrund dagens Sverige.

    Dessutom berättar medlemmar i Mellanförskapet, författare, journalister och andra om sina erfarenheter av att leva som icke-vita svenskar i dagens Sverige.

    Ways of understanding evidence-based practice in social work: A qualitative study2014In: British Journal of Social Work, ISSN 0045-3102, E-ISSN 1468-263X, Vol. 44, no 6, p. 1366-1383Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This qualitative, empirical study explores and describes the variation in how evidence-based practice (EBP) is understood in social work. A phenomenographic approach to design and analysis was applied. Fourteen semi-structured interviews were conducted with politicians, managers and executive staff in three social welfare offices in Sweden. The main findings suggest that there are qualitatively different ways in which EBP is understood, described in five categories: (i) fragmented; (ii) discursive; (iii) instrumental; (iv) multifaceted; and (v) critical. The outcome space is hierarchically structured with a logical relationship between the categories. However, the informants found it difficult to account for EBP, depending on what was expressed as deficient knowledge of EBP in the organisation, as well as ability to provide a seemly context for EBP. The results highlight the importance of acknowledging these differences in the organisation to compose a supportive atmosphere for EBP to thrive rather than merely assume the case of evidence-based social work. The categories can be utilised as stimuli for reflection in social work practice, and thereby provide the possibility to promote knowledge use and learning in the evolving evidence-based social work.

    Swedish Folk High Schools and Inclusive Education2017In: Nordic Studies in Education, ISSN 1891-5914, E-ISSN 1891-5949, Vol. 37, no 2, p. 87-102Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on Swedish folk high schools’ participants with disabilities, and their learning environment within adult education. Facilitating factors are presented and discussed, as well as developmental factors regarding the adjustment of the learning environment. The basis for this empirical study is data from Statistics Sweden and a self-designed online questionnaire with respondents representing the folk high schools (N=212). Theoretical reference is given to concepts such as adult education and inclusive education. The results show there are an increased number of participants with disabilities in Swedish folk high schools. Furthermore, the study emphasizes the meaning of pedagogics with a personalized, individualized approach, and highlights a need for further education of adult educators about disability. The conclusion is that a stronger inclusive-education perspective with focus on learners’ diversity reflects only one side of practice, as this practice is also challenged by welfare system-steered processes that may conflict with an ideal of adult education as empowerment.

    Learning contexts available for Japanese teachers in a top tier public high school: encompassing a demanding work environment with adult education needs.2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Japanese high school teachers are extremely busy. They are covering a myriad of duties in exceedingly long shifts when compared to their colleagues from across the world. The tasks that teachers have to undergo on a daily basis could vary greatly every semester and so does their need for interaction with peers, superiors, society, parents and students. This puts them at the forefront of a wide array of ever changing learning contexts while perhaps also compromising their needs for personal and professional development. Nevertheless, the degree of sophistication and variety of learning settings available to teachers, quite often, mirrors their work commitment and obligations.     Teachers are also aware of additional threats hampering their performance and aims for empowering their students with holistic education. The aim of this research is to identify the strategies that teachers use for satisfying their own adult learning interests and professional development while highlighting the biggest impediments to their learning goals. This study pretends to be a snapshot of the current state of affairs of high school English teachers in Japan as well as a reflection of the resilience of other English teachers across Japan.    I have used a qualitative approach using theme analysis in the interpretation of semi-structured interviews.

    Materialities and Virtualities of Online Teaching: A Practice Theory Perspective2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Various kinds of information and communication technologies (ICT) are common elements for educational purposes in higher education. Researchers have found that educational issues have been put in the background in favor of technology when it comes to teaching with ICT. Investments and efforts have been prioritised concerning hardware and software, and teachers' skills development have been focused on learning how to use specific software programs technically. However, teachers are also asking for skills development concerning pedagogical issues in relation to ICT. Mishra and Koehler (2006) argue that one of the reasons pedagogy has not been given more space is lack of theories that can help us understand the integration of technology in education.

    In order to use ICT teachers have to step into them to show presence and to conduct their teaching. Research has emphasised that presence is important in online learning and thus it becomes an issue of pedagogical interest. Embodiment as a way of showing presence has not been highlighted as other aspects of presence has been. Therefore this study sets out to study teachers' embodiments online. The study has an online ethnographical approach where the analysis is based on data from two case studies where different ICT are used; It's learning and Second Life. Each focuses on a course at university level that is held entirely online. Practice theory (Schatzki, 2002; Schatzki, 1996) and concepts of being a body, having a body and instrumental body have been used for analysing how teachers are stepping into embodied presence.

    Bodily presence implies choices where personalisation of teacher embodiment is afforded by the systems but not demanded. The embodiment is ranging from a default to a personalised one. This study shows that it is possible to customise the embodiment which happens but not always. Further, both the online and offline body is actualised in the online setting. What happens in the practice online is not cut off from what happens offline. Teaching in a virtual world is a matter of managing several bodies that overlaps to a more or lesser degree. There is a need to consider that being a body includes several bodies, not just one. To teach in a virtual world comprises knowledge and skills of manoeuvring the bodies and of teaching subject matter, with both of them in the foreground from time to time. Teachers' bodies online could be understood as instrumental, used for doing teaching in the online setting. The border between the bodies and the ICT is blurred and it is difficult to discern where one ends and the other begins.

    Online teaching practices: Sociomaterial matters in higher education settings2015Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to describe and analyse online teaching practices in the Swedish higher education context. The study had an online ethnographic approach and was based on empirical data on the teaching in two university courses. The study rested primarily on observational data but interviews and available documents also formed the basis for analysis. Empirical data were analysed with a perspective of practice theory – a perspective within a sociomaterial account. The results showed that online teaching was characterised by an embodied sociomaterial practice. The teacher’s body could be understood as both multiple and closely interwoven with technology. Furthermore, the teacher’s body was used in the teaching situation to reduce technological complexity but also, along with other forms of materiality, to prefigure what kind of teaching would take place. Teacher interventions in online environments could furthermore be understood as relational to both technology (that is the virtual material arrangement) and teachers’ doings and sayings (that is the teaching practice). Teacher interventions were aimed at making the arrangement intelligible for the students. The study showed that teacher interventions arranged both students and information and communication technology (ICT) in order to make them work as a teaching practice. The teaching practice that emerged was characterised as an interplay between virtual materiality and social practice, where asymmetricrelations between teachers and the ICT prevailed.

    Teacher interventions in online teaching practicesManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses teacher interventions in online teaching practices through the lens of practice theory. The analysis has its point of departure in an online ethnographic study comprising two settings, each focusing on a university course carried out entirely online. In this article, it is argued that the mode of teacher interventions is relational to the particular ICT that was used in each course. Furthermore, teacher interventions arranged both human and non-human entities to work as an interrelated teaching practice. This structuring of the teaching practice could be seen as a complex interplay of pedagogy, technology and the coconstitution of these. Teachers’ actions were organised by teleoaffective structures producing a calm and safe climate. Teachers fostered students’ learning by forcing the technology into the background so that students could focus on subject matter.

    Teachers' embodied presence in online teaching practices2016In: Studies in Continuing Education, ISSN 0158-037X, E-ISSN 1470-126X, Vol. 38, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to examine teachers’ embodiments online. The analysis is based ononline ethnographic data from two online courses in higher education settings usingdifferent information and communication technologies. The perspective of practicetheory and the concepts of being a body, having a body and the instrumental body wereused to analyse how teachers step into an embodied presence. The embodied presencedepends on both teacher judgements and what the technology offers. The finding addsto the understanding of the concept of teacher presence online, in showing that teacherembodiment occurs online and furthermore that the body could be understood asmultiple. The result also shows how online and offline bodies hang together,actualising the offline body in the online setting, which in turn raises questions onthe dualism of online and offline. Teachers also deliberately used their embodimentsand bodily traces online in order to sustain presence and to bring about certain teachingpractices. Their bodily positioning signalled what kind of teaching that would takeplace. A deliberate positioning of the online body in a virtual world also helped toreduce the complexity of the arrangements for the students.

    Teaching practices in Second Life: Sociomaterial mattersManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, technology use in a higher education setting online are analysed with a sociomaterial approach. The overarching aim with the study reported is to analyse the relation between teaching practice and technology in online pedagogy and the paper seeks to answer the question on how the online setting studied becomes intelligible as a teaching practice. A single subject university course in spoken language carried out online in the virtual world of Second Life® constitutes the setting. An online ethnographic approach with a major focus on participant observation of the teaching in the course has been used. Theoretical concepts on practice based on Schatzki are used in the analysis. The result shows that teaching practices in online settings are made intelligible through intentional, causal, spatial and prefigurative relations between teaching practices and material arrangements. The intelligibility of a setting is not created in advance, but is emergent and multifaceted.

    The emergence of online teaching practices: A sociomaterial analysis2016In: Learning, Media & Technology, ISSN 1743-9884, E-ISSN 1743-9892, Vol. 41, no 3, p. 444-462Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article was to analyse relations between online teaching practices and their virtual material arrangements. Two higher education online settings were studied using an online ethnographic approach in which observation of the teaching process was of central importance. The first setting was a course in education carried out on itslearning© (a learning management system) and the second setting was a language course in Second Life® (a virtual world). A sociomaterial perspective based on practice theory was used in the analysis, and the focal point was the co-constitutive relation between teaching practices and material arrangements in online settings. A number of relations between practice and arrangement were identified and analysed in the results section. It is argued that the relation between online arrangements and practice is not fixed and determined beforehand, but emerges and alters as the teaching unfolds.

    Learning through observation2019In: Interprofessional Simulation in Health Care: Materiality, Embodiment, Interaction / [ed] Madeleine Abrandt Dahlgren, Hans Rystedt, Li Felländer-Tsai & Sofia Nyström, Cham: Springer, 2019, p. 115-137Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter has a particular focus on the observers’ role in simulation-based learning activities. Simulation-based learning is often organised so that participants rotates between active participation in the scenario and participation as observers. The research examples provided show that the conditions for learning are related to the locations where and the ways the observers are situated, and to how the instructions to the observers are formulated. Arguments are put forward that the observers’ role in simulation has unexploited potential for developing skills of noticing.

    Constructing a professional: gendered knowledge in the (self-)positioning of skin and spa therapy students2017In: Gender and Education, ISSN 0954-0253, E-ISSN 1360-0516, Vol. 29, no 7, p. 890-906Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study outlines the self-positioning of skin and spa therapy students. More specifically, it focuses how they position themselves as professionals in terms of knowledge, and how gender is at play throughout this process. Drawing on a poststructural approach, inspired by Foucault and feminist theory, regularities of description and self-description were analysed. This approach provides analytical tools for analysing how people engage with discourse in this micro-context of education and training, and feminist theory enables an understanding of how gender relations of power emerge. The material consists of interview transcripts derived from interviews with 20 skin and spa therapy students. The study shows how a scientific and caring professional emerges, producing gender relations as effects of power. Furthermore, a caring discourse is ultimately mobilised and a stereotyped image of the beauty industry is shown to govern students self-positioning, reproducing norms of gender and consumption.

    Shaped for beauty: Vocational and gendered subjectivities in private education for the beauty industry2018Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis was to answer the question: How are vocational, gendered subjectivities produced in vocational education for the beauty industry? Drawing on Foucault and poststructural feminist theory, this question is answered in four papers, in which the material consists of beauty-school recruitment and marketing material, interviews with skin and spa therapy students and observations of practical skin and spa therapy training. These are educational arrangements that are closely bound to the economic sector of the beauty industry, and they have remained remarkably unexplored. Various aspects of subjectivity production are explored throughout these papers: Paper I shows how the potential beauty student is shaped through processes of responsibilising and individualising in recruitment; Paper II shows how a scientific and caring professional emerges; Paper III shows how students learn to adopt a critical gaze towards bodies; and Paper IV shows how students are produced as emotional workers and learners, taking Hochschild’s term “emotional labour” as a point of departure. The results show how (medical) scientific knowledge becomes a resource in the production of the skin and spa therapy professional, mobilising gender relations of power, and neglecting other types of skills and knowledge. However, relational and caring aspects of work and learning emerge in the study through the way in which wider discourses of femininity inform the ways in which students are produced as professionals.

    Shaping the female student: an analysis of Swedish beauty school recruitment texts2016In: Studies in Continuing Education, ISSN 0158-037X, E-ISSN 1470-126X, Vol. 38, no 2, p. 243-258Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on the recruitment of adults to the beauty industry in Sweden. It is concerned with a move in (beauty) education away from state and towards private provision in a wider context where education is becoming more heavily marketised. Drawing on a poststructural approach inspired by the work of Foucault and feminist theory, the shaping of student subjectivity in recruitment material for private beauty schools is analysed. A poststructural approach provides analytical tools that make visible the process of how power shapes subjectivities, and the use of feminist theory gives special focus to the gendered aspects of this process. The study includes a textual analysis of website homepages of beauty schools, beauty schools’ Facebook pages and web pages that provide compiled information on educational programs and courses connected to the beauty industry. The analysis shows how consumption is constituted and feminised through specific marketing strategies and thereby becomes both a starting point and a resource for the shaping of student subjectivity. Thus, a particular form of gendered entrepreneurial self is shaped in this femininised educational context, and this study therefore highlights the importance of vocational research that takes into account the shaping of student subjectivity.

    TEACHERS IN THE ERA OF ACCELERATION: How the acceleration of ICT developments influences the ICT use by teachers at school2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the effort to examine the factors that impact the use of ICT by teachers, research has up until now neglected the acceleration of ICT developments as a factor that affects the successful integration of ICT in education. The technological acceleration in general has triggered significant changes at the social level, such as the acceleration of social change and the acceleration of the pace of life. This is why the study of the acceleration of ICT provides for a good theoretical framework to study the teachers and their interaction with ICT in a broader context, one that engages the environment in which a teacher functions as a teacher and a learner. This study explores the role of the acceleration of ICT as a factor that affects the use of ICT by teachers in Cyprus secondary schools. The Social Acceleration (SA) theory is used to interpret the whole situation. After examining how teachers perceive the ICT acceleration, how it affects them at school and personally as lifelong learners the results showed that ICT acceleration is not a significant factor in the use of ICT by teachers at schools in Cyprus but it still affects teachers indirectly as lifelong learners. I argue that the teachers have established a superficial relation to technology that has to do with a short-sighted vision of ICT integration which also the Ministry of Education shares. I propose that serious decisions should be made at a policy level in order to make a conscious adoption of technology, not necessarily running behind the accelerated ICT developments but exploiting the potential of ICT according to the needs of the educational system.

    Being and Becoming a Teacher in Initial Literacy and Second Language Education for Adults2018Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the thesis is to explore what being and becoming a teacher of Literacy Education and Second Language Learning for Adults (LESLLA) mean. The study, which applies situated learning theory combined with some Bourdieuan concepts as thinking tools, seeks to depict how the professional identity of LESLLA teachers can be understood from their memberships in different communities of practice. The empirical study is based on observational data and on semi-structured interviews, which have been analysed thematically. The results show that the LESLLA teachers construct professional identity in regard to the particular nature of the learners, i.e. that the learners are simultaneously adult emergent readers and second language learners establishing themselves in a new society. This is, for example, seen in the teachers’ teaching actions and in how they respond to learning opportunities and changes. Likewise, the results illustrate that becoming a LESLLA teacher is an ongoing process in which some periods are particularly critical for learning. It takes place in a number of different communities of which the teaching practices are the most crucial. When it comes to the other communities to which the teachers belong, their significance differs from teacher to teacher. Moreover, power plays a central role in the identity formation. Societal forces, and the position and trajectory of the teacher in different communities in the landscapes of LESLLA teaching and Swedish for Immigrants (SFI) contribute to it.

    Being transformed and transforming oneself in a time of change: A study of teacher identity in second language education for adults2019In: Studies in the Education of Adults, ISSN 0266-0830, E-ISSN 1478-9833Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    This paper takes a perspective on professional identity in times of change to explore what societal changes of significance for second language education for adults mean for the teacher’s professional identity. It differs, thus, from many other studies on teacher identity, which concentrate on one educational reform. The study, which applies situated learning theory, is built on semi-structured interviews with 13 teachers in this sector. The results show that migration, marketization and streamlining, and digitalisation imply changes, which have a profound effect on the teachers. Whereas some changes mean that the teachers can develop their teaching or strengthen their position in work-related communities, other changes restrict them. Moreover, the response of the teachers depends on their judgement about what the changes mean for their teaching and the learners. Teachers position themselves by, for example, claiming to possess the competence they see as essential to meet the learners’ needs.

    Actions and Conceptions: Exploring Initial Literacy Teaching Practice for Adults2018In: Journal of Language, Identity & Education, ISSN 1534-8458, E-ISSN 1532-7701, Vol. 17, no 5, p. 306-319Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Given that it is a delicate task to meet the educational needs of adult emergent readers in a second language setting, this study serves to explore the teaching practice of teachers working with Low Educated Second Language and Literacy Acquisition learners. Based on a situated learning perspective, data from 16 lesson observations of nine teachers is analysed. The findings show that teachers initiate and negotiate learning activities, strive to get the students to understand words and other symbols, facilitate participation within and outside the classroom and negotiate the acceptable student behaviour. These findings suggest that LESLLA teaching and learning is a particular practice, where the teachers actions are intertwined with those of the learners and with the teachers’ conceptions of the learners. In that way, the teachers’ actions do not only speak of the learners, but also on their own professional identity.

    Building bridges and strengthening positions: Exploring the identity construction of immigrant bilingual teachers2017In: International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, ISSN 1367-0050, E-ISSN 1747-7522Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores how bilingual teachers with an immigrant background construct professional identity in the context of initial literacy and second language teaching of adults. Specifically, the study seeks to understand what the teachers’ membership of different work-related communities means for their professional identity and what capital the teachers use, negotiate and acquire to strengthen their positions in this professional field. The study is based on interviews with seven bilingual teachers. The data has been analysed from the perspective of situated learning theory and by employing some complementing concepts of Bourdieu used as thinking tools. The findings illustrate how the teachers construct their professional identity in relation to their students and by positioning themselves in different teacher communities. Moreover, the findings stress how the local school community plays a crucial part in determining the position the teachers obtain in the field. But in spite of being acknowledged as professionals, the teachers still need to negotiate their position by acquiring new capital and stressing the capital they already have.

    Family makeover: Coaching, confession and parental responsibilisation2014In: Pedagogy, Culture & Society, ISSN 1468-1366, E-ISSN 1747-5104, Vol. 22, no 2, p. 169-188Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, there is a widespread idea that parents need to learn how to carry out their roles as parents. Practices of parental learning operate throughout society. This article deals with one particular practice of parental learning, namely nanny TV, and the way in which ideal parents are constructed through such programmes. The point of departure is SOS family, a series broadcast on Swedish television in 2008. Proceeding from the theorising of governmentality developed in the wake of the work of Michel Foucault, we analyse the parental ideals conveyed in the series, as an example of the way parents are constituted as subjects in the ‘advanced liberal society’ of today. The ideal parent is a subject who, guided by the coach, is constantly endeavouring to achieve a makeover. The objective of this endeavour, however, is self-control, whereby the parents will in the end become their own coaches.

    Fostering entrepreneurial citizens2019In: Neoliberalism and market forces in education: Lessons from Sweden / [ed] Magnus Dahlstedt & Andreas Fejes, Routledge, 2019, 1, p. 107-122Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The focus of this chapter is the discourse of entrepreneurship education in Sweden. Drawing on a genealogical approach, the analysis draws attention to how this discourse is shaped in the curriculum today and how it has come to emerge. Focusing on two key events that constitute this discourse, responsibility and problem-solving, and tracing these events back in time, the analysis illustrates how the discourse on entrepreneurship education today shapes a specific kind of citizen, one who is responsible for themselves and who has developed a constant will and desire for learning, thus being able to adapt to the constant changing future. Such a citizen is distinctly different from the one emerging in the 1960s and 1980s, where a citizen who shows solidarity with others, and especially the weak, and who develops problem-solving skills in order to actively engage in the development of society, emerges. These results can be related to wider trends in education policy, where neoliberal rationalities have become more central, in Sweden as well as in other countries, where there has been a shift of focus, from an understanding of education as a common good, to an understanding of education as a private good.

    Fritidsgården och utanförskapets kraft – viljan att förebilda2018In: Förortsdrömmar: Ungdomar, utanförskap och viljan till inkludering / [ed] Magnus Dahlstedt, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press, 2018, p. 127-138Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Som vi kunde se i föregående kapitel så utgör idrotten en av de domäner där unga kan utöva meningsfull fritidsaktivitet. Vi ska i detta kapitel rikta intresse mot en annan domän där unga kan utöva meningsfull fritidsaktivitet, nämligen fritidsgården. För båda dessa domäner finns sedan länge en stark tilltro till deras potential när det gäller att med den meningsfulla fritidens positiva kraft som medel åstadkomma förändring och inkludering, inte minst av unga i utanförskapets områden (Lindgren & Lundström 2008).

    Liksom i föregående kapitel belyser vi här hur exkluderingens olika risker i arbetet med att åstadkomma inkludering inte enbart utgör utmaningar och begränsningar, något ont som med olika medel ska överkommas. Exkluderingens risker kan även utgöra något produktivt – de möjliggör inte minst tillblivelsen av förebilden. Det är nämligen just till stor del tack vare fritidsledarnas förmåga att utgöra goda förebilder för de unga, som inkludering blir möjlig. Ovan finner vi en sekvens hämtad från ett reportage i Göteborgs-Posten. I reportaget iscensätts den unga förortstjejen Joan Amangs resa från utanför till innanför, från Göteborgsförorten Bergsjöns ”svåra hemförhållanden” till ”högskolan i Växjö”. I berättelsen gestaltas en förebildande praktik, där förortstjejens resa beskrivs som möjliggjord av de ”positiva förebilder” hon inspirerats av och följt – inte minst i egenskap av de fritidsledare som hon mötte under sin uppväxt.

    Futures in line?: Occupational choice among migrant adult students in Sweden2019In: International Journal of Lifelong Education, ISSN 0260-1370, E-ISSN 1464-519X, Vol. 38, no 1, p. 76-87Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to analyse the ways in which migration plays outin adult students’ narratives about their occupational choice and future,focusing on three individual narratives of adult students with variousexperiences of migration to Sweden. Drawing on Sara Ahmed’s conceptionof orientation, our results show how the adult students’ narrativeson their future occupations are formed on the basis of migration, pertainingto their particular experiences of being recognised as migrantOthers. Among the three students, similar challenges emerge in terms oftheir claims for belonging. One the one hand, the students do claimbelonging to the Swedish social community. On the other hand, theyare – as ‘migrants’ – repeatedly reminded of their non-belonging to thiscommunity. In various ways, they feel out of place. Although migration,in the narratives, is not played out one and the same way, but in variousways, engagement in adult education as a means of finding a job appearas the main orientation guiding the futures of the adult students, asbeing an important way of finding a future and claim one’s belonging tothe Swedish social community.

    In the Name of Freedom: Governmentality, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and the Will to Activate2015In: Rights of children in the Nordic welfare states: Conceptual and empirical enquiries / [ed] Gro Hellesdatter Jacobsen, Copenhagen: NSU Press, 2015, 1, p. 51-71Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The focus of this chapter is on education as a social right and particularly the formation of ‘active citizens’ through cognitive behavioural techniques adopted by schools across Sweden. On the basis of interviews with staff from two different schools, as well as manuals, the analysis focuses on two therapeutic programmes. The theoretical point of departure is the theorization of governmentality developed in the wake of the work of Michel Foucault. The various techniques initiated within these programmes make a certain kind of governing possible – ‘governing in the name of freedom’. Overall, the teaching within these programmes can be viewed as expressing an advanced liberal governance, which involves educating children into active citizens, with the responsibility for developing their own future and both willing and able to take responsibility for their actions, rather than into passive bearers of rights.

    Market forces in Swedish education2019In: Neoliberalism and market forces in education: Lessons from Sweden / [ed] Magnus Dahlstedt & Andreas Fejes, Routledge, 2019, 1, p. 1-12Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The shift towards neoliberalism in education in Sweden connects up with wider agendas promoted by influential transnational actors such as the OECD and the EU. Sweden has been quite involved in OECD activities and is part of the major assessment programme, and even though the EU does not have any mandate in terms of educational policies, its agenda on lifelong learning has been picked up and mobilised in a Swedish context. Such a lifelong learning agenda is shaped within a wider neoliberal notion of governing. Here education is seen as an investment whose rewards can be evaluated in terms of increased growth and international competitiveness. As such, the focus of education has been directed towards employability. Competitiveness thus emerges as the more or less overall objective of education to strive for. The meaning and role of education thereby changes, from being seen as a fundamental social right to being seen as a commodity, a product on the market offered to individuals in their search for skills and competences considered necessary. Such changing views of education also change the way the role of public institutions is seen – from one of planning, organising and delivering services, to one that follows up and evaluates the services provided. How did Sweden end up here? What made such developments possible? This chapter begins to answer those questions, which are then further elaborated on in the following chapters in the book.

    Neoliberalism and market forces in education: Lessons from Sweden2019Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Neoliberalism and Market Forces in Education provides a wide perspective onvthe dramatic transformation of education policy in Sweden that has taken place during the last 30 years, with a specific focus on marketization. The marketization of education in Sweden is set in the wider international context of changes in education systems. With contributions from researchers across a wide range of scientific disciplines, the book provides examples of the consequences of market orientation in education in terms of increase in inequality as well as in terms of what the market orientation means for principals, teachers and students. It considers how Sweden has developed one of the most marketized education systems in the world and the possible consequences of such processes, as identified by research. Neoliberalism and Market Forces in Education will be of great interest to educational practitioners, politicians, scholars in the field, and postgraduate and research students in education.
