    När folkhögskolan möter högskolan -Erfarenheter från en forskningscirkel om pedagogiska praktiker2006In: Mimer, Brunnsvik, 2006Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Utvecklingen och framväxten av det sk informationssamhället har medfört att det svenska högskolesystemet har byggts ut. Ny grupper av studenter söker sig till högskolan. Från drygt 40.000 studenter i mitten av 60-talet finns idag över 400.000 studenter vid våra högskolor och universitet. Ett vidgat tillträde till högre utbildning ställer flera nya och utmanande frågor. Har så många människor motiv och förmåga att ta sig an högskolestudier? Är utbygnaden motiverad och löner den sig? Hur skall gymnasieskola och vuxenutbildning förbereda de kommande studenterna på ett bra sätt? Behöver så många utbilda sig, eller med andra ord, passar alla dessa nya studenter för högskolans krav? Är högskolan verkligen intresserad av att anpassa sig och ge dessa nya grupper tillträde till den högre utbildningen? Dessa och andra frågor, som utgår från den nya situation som högskolan befinner sig i, diskuterade och bearbetade en grupp lärare från Högskolan Dalarna och fem av Dalarnas folkhögskolor i en forskningscirkel. Syftet med detta paper är att sammanfatta erfarenheterna från forskningscirkeln.

    Att organisera förändring: designperspektiv på organisationsförändringar i tillverkningsindustrin2004Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    The objective of this study is to articulate the particular knowledge that is developed by participants in organizational-change projects. The study is based on the authour´s own experiences as a wage earners´ consultant. The scientific approach has been influenced by neo-pragmatism. The design perspective used is mainly based on Simon´s and Schön´s attempt to develop a general theory of practical knowledge. Organizations are viewed as artifacts and the participants in organizational-change as designers working in co-operation.

    Educating educational leaders in Vietnam2013In: Educational leaders as change agents: meeting an uncertain future, 2013, p. 59-70Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The idea that leadership is a key factor in realizing educational reforms is widely cherished. All over the world educational leaders face new challenges and extended responsibilities. In these new situations a completed teacher-training program is no longer sufficient to become a successful educational leader. There is a growing need for leadership development and there is a need to discuss and compare the content and design of leadership programs in order to gain more experience and knowledge on how to create programs with practical relevance. This paper discusses the design and delivery of a master program in educational leadership and management in a joint venture between two universities in Vietnam and Sweden. Moreover, the paper argues that universities might play a special role in helping educational leaders to strengthen their professional status and to develop their own community of practice through helping them to identify their own solid body of disciplinary knowledge and their own research agenda.

    Expedient forms of assessment in higher education2006In: NFPF/NERA, Örebro, 2006Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Examinations and assessments give lecturers the power to control and direct students´ learning and learning activities. For this reason, many lecturers have tested and developed new forms of assessment that can be used to support students´ personal growth and critical thinking. This paper takes as its point of departure an oral assessment that has been developed in an undergraduate course in business administration. During an hour groups of 8-12 students struggle to perform a reflective dialogue, using the facts and analytical schemes they have studied, in order to inquire into a problematic situation. In this paper, this assessment is seen as an example of a varied and rich assessment practice that has grown out of a desire for purposeful and expedient forms of assessment. In the present situation, with large and heterogeneous groups of students, limited resources and new demands for full comparability of students´ performances throughout the European community, it is important that the appearing assessment practice is reflected upon and made available for critical evaluation, in order to improve the quality in undergraduate education.

    Högskolans behov av pedagogisk förnyelse2005In: Breddad rekrytering - med förhinder? / [ed] Ericson, Björn, Borlänge: Förlags AB Björnen , 2005Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Med anledning av regeringens proposition "Den öppna högskolan" startades ett antal utbildningsprojekt på Högskolan Dalarna för att rekrytera nya grupper och ge dem det stöd och den hjälp de behöver för att de skall bli kvar och fullfölja sina studier. Ett av projekten är Förberedelseåret som genomfördes i samarbete med länets folkhögskolor. Projektets bärande idé var att skapa en reflekterande gemenskap med lärare från högskolan och folkhögskolan.

    Making Higher Education Available to Many More2004In: NFPF/NERA, Reykjavijk, 2004Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to deal successfully with the expansion of higher education, eventually reaching 50% of each new age group, Swedish Universities are taking measures in order to recruit students from groups that normally don´t look for higher education. In this article the arrangement and experience of one action research project is discussed. The project focuses on the meeting between self-cultivation and formal education. Students are recruited from five ”folk high schools” to an academic introduction course that is developed as the course goes along. The students are encouraged to take part in the development work. Teachers from both sides participate in the teaching and in the recruitment and curriculum work. Furthermore, teachers and researchers together form a research circle. With the introduction course as a common reference, this group study relevant litterature and reflect on teaching and working conditions. During the project all participants try to articulate what is important in their own learning and teaching experience. In this article the preliminary results are discussed under four headings: working in projects, testing one´s own and others´ understandings and valuations, working with models and images, reflecting on the leasning process.

    Narrowing the Gap Between the Academy and the Worlds of Work2005In: African Business and Development: Strategies for Economic Growth and Poverty Alleviation / [ed] Ayadi, Felix, Dar-es-Salaam, 2005, Vol. Proceedings 2005, p. 273-280Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a need to improve teaching and learning methods in higher education. Firstly, knowledge is narrative and discoursive and has to be treated as such. Secondly, universities are expected to play a more pronounced role in the economic development of society. The context of this paper is the growing number of students and adult learners in universities who lack the educational training and background that is taken for granted in conventional teaching and learning methods, and, secondly, the ideas and outlines of an action oriented and reflective educational practice that has its roots in American pragmatism.

    Addressing the creativity and enterprise of the poor2006In: IAABD / [ed] Ayadi, Felix, Accra, Ghana, 2006Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sub Saharan African economies are increasingly dependent on small businesses in the informal sector. Subsequently, there are many institutions established with the aim to support small businesses and promote entrepreneurship. There are, we argue, good reasons to rethink the standard way such support and training processes are organized. A co-operative support process would hold several advantages. Practitioners would not be seen as beneficiaries but as co-designers. It would add to their self-esteem, stimulate their visual thinking and activate their entrepreneurial visions. It would bring about a better understanding of what is needed to change the growing number of survivalists into a community of entrepreneurs.

    Translation, Communication and 'Learning': Experiences from teaching a master program in Viet Nam2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Vietnam, as in other Asian countries, co-operation with foreign universities plays an important role for the development of higher education. This paper is based on personal experiences from teaching a Swedish Master Programme in Education Science at Vietnam National University in Hanoi. Using theories developed by Lev Vygotsky and Donald Schon, the programme is explored as an inter-cultural learning process. Three aspects are focused upon. Firstly, the fact that communication between students and teachers is conducted with the help of translators who support both teachers and students in their attempt to understand and make themselves understood. Secondly, the expressed need to connect the ideas and techniques which are studied in the programme to the students´ professional worlds. Thirdly, the need to construct a framework wherein the students can inquire into their own situations and to encourage them to try new and more productive ways to deal with problems they are confronted with.
