Förutsättningar för lärares lärande - en studie om aktiviteter, ledarskap och arbetslagsfunktioner
2004 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this quantitative study is to map out the conditions of teachers’ learning, partly related to the assignment of school development, partly to theories of the impact on the students learning’ environment. 166 teachers from six schools in two municipalities answered a questionnaire with given alternatives. As the sample was not randomly made, no conclusions can be drawn about a larger group. The result of the study shows that activities with the aim of creating conditions for teachers’ learning, to a larger extent, take place outside the teaching situation. Courses and lectures dominate and the main purpose is to acquaint oneself with other people’s ideas. The activities quite often take place together with other teachers but the possibilities of having a dialogue that emanates from any other perspective than that of the “problem-owner”, are limited. The occurrence - and desire – of activities that involve contact with researchers or the examining of one’s own teaching activity, are relatively unusual. Taken together, the conditions of teachers’ learning to a greater extent support competence reinforcement (the teacher gets more skilled in doing what he or she already does) than competence renewal (the teacher develops new ways of thinking and acting). However, a positive correlation between the examination years (irrespective of age) and the interest in learning-activities distinguished by taking place together with other teachers; within the teaching situation; concerning problems and questions that come up during the work with students’ learning, might indicate that the teachers’ attitudes towards their own learning are about to change. The schools in the study differ but the students have, generally spoken, small opportunities to catch sight of their teachers’ learning-activities as these rarely take place in the learning-environment where teachers and students meet.
