Abstract [en]

The aim of this essay is to study the importance of team organisation of teachers’ learning of teaching and learning and to find out different obstacles and possibilities.

I carried out the study at a schooldistrict in a community in the south of Sweden. Data was collected by group interviews and document studies. To get all kinds of teachers, from pre-school to year six, in the groups the sample was made by the headmaster of the schooldistrict. Since it is a case study the findings can not be considered as general, but they can hopefully contribute the pedagogical discussion and future research.

The findings show that there exists a difference between the expectations on policy level on the one hand and on the team level on the other hand. The expectation on the policy level describes a kind of organized learning, which means a collective strategy of evaluating, analyzing and document the work. Although the teachers declared that the team had a major importance, they had not any expectations regarding the collective learning. The learning that they describe cannot be described as organized learning, it was more of an independent type of learning, which is characterised of fragmentation and individualism and goes on spontaneously in the work while teaching the children.

The obstacles found were; unclear teacher identity, complex workday task, the difficult talk, lack of expectations and the hidden place of organized learning.

The possibilities found were; multiplicity, team spirit, reflecting talk and up to date.

For further research I propose a deeper analysis about the nature of both the organized learning as well as the independent type of learning and how the schools use the time, 104 hours, for competence improvement.
