Avbrott i nätbaserade studier inom Komvux

Abstract [sv]

Både internationellt och i Sverige forskas det om avbrott inom nätbaserade utbildningar. Forskningen fokuserar oftast på högskolestudier, varför jag ville undersöka avbrottsorsaker inom nätbaserade gymnasial vuxenutbildningen (Komvux). Syftet var att få reda på om det kan ligga andra orsaker bakom de officiella avbrottsorsakerna som syns i statistiken samt vad man som lärare kan göra för att förhindra avbrott. Studien fokuserade på Italienska 1 och jag gjorde kvalitativa intervjuer med åtta elever som avbrutit under 2015. Resultatet visade att det bakom den officiella avbrottsorsaken ibland fanns andra orsaker samt att flera orsaker ofta samverkade. Den aspekt som oftast återkom i intervjuerna var behovet av muntlig kontakt med läraren, både i form av rutinmässiga lärarinitierade telefonsamtal i början av kursen och längre fram, när eleverna började komma efter.

Abstract [en]

Both internationally and in Sweden, research have been carried out about dropouts among dis-tance learning students. This research, however, mainly concerns university students and therefore I wanted to examine dropout reasons among distance learning adults on upper sec-ondary level (Komvux1). The purpose with this article is to find out if there are other reasons for this than the official ones shown by the statistics and what the teacher can do so as to pre-vent students from abandoning their studies. The study focused on Italian 1 (first level) and I did qualitative interviews with 8 students who quitted this course in 2015. The result shows that sometimes behind the official statistics, there were other reasons for the withdrawals and that several reasons often interacted. The result also shows the importance of proactive, teach-er initiated telephone calls to the students, both as routine calls in the beginning of each course and later on, when the students begin to fall behind.
