    Why should physicians read?: Understanding clinical judgement and its relation to literary experience2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Is literary experience of any practical relevance to the clinician? This is the overall question addressed by this investigation, which starts by tracing the historical roots of scientific medicine. These are found to be intimately linked to a form of rationality associated with the scientific revolution of the 17th century and with “modernity”. Medical practice, however, is dependent also on another form of rationality associated with what Stephen Toulmin calls “the epistemology of the biographical”. The very core of clinical medicine is shown to be the clinical encounter, an interpretive meeting where the illness experience is at the centre of attention. The physician can reach the goals of medicine only by developing clinical judgement. Clinical judgement is subjected to close analysis and is assumed to be intimately connected to the form of knowledge Aristotle called phronesis.

    In order to explore how literature – drama, novels, poetry – may be related to clinical judgement, a view of literature is presented that emphasizes literature as an invitation to the reader, to be met responsibly and responsively. Literature carries a potential for a widened experience, for a more nuanced perception of reality – and this potential is suggested to be ethically relevant to the practice of medicine. The “narrative rationality” of a literary text constitutes a complement to the rationality pervading scientific medicine.

    The final step in my analysis is a closer exploration of the potential of the literary text to contribute to the growth of clinical judgement, in relation to the challenges of everyday clinical work. Some of the conditions that may facilitate such growth are outlined, but it is also shown that full empirical evidence for the beneficial effects of reading on the clinician reader is beyond reach.

    Undervisning i läsförståelsestrategier och genrer i de lägre årskurserna: Hur explicit är och bör den vara?2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master thesis focuses on teaching in reading comprehension strategies and genre knowledge. The study is based on research that shows that education in these areas is important for students' development of reading comprehension. Reading comprehension in itself is the basis for future knowledge acquisition and further studies. The purpose of this study is to investigate how teachers, active in the range from pre-school classes to third grade classes, works explicitly with reading comprehension strategies and genre knowledge. 

    The research is based on a web-questionnaire survey of all teachers for current grades in the subjects Swedish, Mathematics, Social studies and Science/Technology. It is limited to investigating a municipality in southern Sweden. 

    The results are coherent in such a way that the majority of teachers asked consider themselves to educate explicitly in reading comprehension strategies. Slightly fewer participants consider themselves to educate explicitly in genre knowledge. Also, based on the answers given by the participants, it turns out that both reading comprehension strategies and genre skills are less taught in this municipality compare to what is recommended according to science.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate witch knowledge and thoughts children will have about the term of floating and sinking, and witch possibilities there is to make various knowledge visible in preschool physics through playing with water. The study also concern the differences and similarities between two different groups of age who have participated in the study. The study was carried out by an activity with participant observation and feedback interviews afterwards. The result shows that the possibilities to physics are many in preschool. The children expressed new thoughts and ideas who concern other phenomena in physics during the investigation and discussed similar experiments and material to examine. The result shows that the children used previous experience and knowledge to explain and ask hypotheses. They also used their language through interaction with each other to understand, create and recreate knowledge.

    Den fysiska miljöns betydelse för personer med perceptionsstörningar: Verksamhetsnära pedagogers uppfattningar inom LSS-verksamheter2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with the present study is to examine house pedagogues’ perceptions of how physical factors in the common areas of group homes affect people with perception disorders. The questions that the study further answers is whether adaptations in the physical environment have been implemented or need to be carried out based on the individual's needs, and whether the persons living in the group home have been involved in the design of the physical environment in the common areas. The people who is living in the group home have disabilities in the autism spectrum and intellectual disability of varying degrees.  In order to answer these questions, I have conducted a survey with complementary interviews. The house pedagogues who participated in the study all work in group homes, which are governed by decisions under LSS, The Act on Support and Services for Disabled People.   I have analyzed the result with the theoretical starting point KASAM, which is based on Antonovsky's concept of context. Antonovsky believes that the existence is comprehensible, manageable and meaningful when internal and external stimuli come in an orderly, structured and cohesive manner.   The result of the study shows that the perceptions of house pedagogues are that difficulties in dealing with different forms of sensory experiences in the common areas of the group homes affect the people who is living there. The result also shows that adjustments have been made and that further adjustments would have to be made within the activities to meet the needs of people for the environment, and that in some of the activities, individuals have had the opportunity to influence the design of the physical environment in there living environment.   This study can contribute to increased knowledge, through house pedagogues’ perceptions, about difficulties within different forms of sensory experiences for people with perception disturbances and in what areas there is a need for adaptation.

    Alla kan uppnå mästerskap med rätt förutsättningar!: En kvalitativ studie som undersöker vilka faktorer som påverkar två teams prestationsförmåga2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med vår studie är att jämföra och undersöka två team gällande vilka faktorer som kan påverka deras prestationsförmåga i arbetet utifrån fyra centrala områden: kommunikation & konflikter, grupputveckling, ledarskap och motivation. Denna studie undersöker två projektteam med likvärdiga arbetsuppgifter för att beskriva deras upplevelse inom dessa områden. Det teoretiska material som lyfts fram i uppsatsen berör relevanta teorier som utökar kunskapen gällande kommunikation & konflikter, varierade grupputvecklingsteorier, situationsanpassat ledarskap och Self-Determination Theory. Det empiriska materialet består av sex kvalitativa intervjuer med teammedlemmar i två separata projektteam samt en informantintervju med VD:n på ett IT- & konsultföretag i Stockholmsområdet. I studien har vi beskrivit vilka faktorer som leder en hög prestationsförmåga samt presenterat hur väl de två teamen uppfyller Bucholz & Roth (1987) åtta kännetecken för högpresterande team. I resultatet presenteras utifrån de fyra områden vi har undersökt vilka likheter och skillnader som teamen upplever utifrån deras varierande förutsättningar inom områdena. För att sedan utifrån teamens egna upplevelse om att vara högpresterande bekräftas genom att de uppfyller Bucholz & Roth (1987) åtta känntecken för högpresterande team.

    Forskningsförmedling: En humanistisk paradgren2023Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Forskningsförmedling är viktigt för att denkunskap som produceras på lärosätena skakomma samhället till del. Kunskap, innovationer och nytta handlar emellertid om mer änvad som ger omedelbar ekonomisk tillväxt.Genom till exempel publika samtal, populär-vetenskapliga texter och deltagande i media-la sammanhang bidrar forskare till kunskaps-spridning som i sin tur gynnar medborgerligbildning och demokrati. Samtidigt upplevermånga forskare – inte minst inom humaniora– att förutsättningarna för att förmedla sinforskning inte är gynnsamma. Hur kommerdet sig och vad kan göras åt det? Det är kärnfrågorna i den här rapporten.

    Arkivpedagogik på Regionarkivet: En studie om hur Regionarkivet i Västra Götaland och Göteborgs stad arbetarmed utåtriktad och arkivpedagogisk verksamhet2022Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna studie har jag undersökt hur Regionarkivet i Västra Götaland, det vill säga iGöteborg och Vänersborg, har arbetat och arbetar med utåtriktad och arkivpedagogiskverksamhet. För att undersöka detta har jag utfört tre kvalitativa intervjuer med anställdapå Regionarkivet. För att komplettera intervjuerna valde jag även att göra en kvalitativtextanalys av de texter som Regionarkivet har tillgängliga om deras utåtriktade ochpedagogiska verksamhet på nätet och i häften som finns tillgängliga för de anställda påRegionarkivets intranät. Jag har även använt material som publiceras på Regionarkivetssociala medier och böcker som Regionarkivet tidigare publicerat.

    Det visade sig i ett tidigt skede att Regionarkivet har en begränsad verksamhet när detgäller arkivpedagogik riktat till skolan. De arbetar i stället i stor utsträckning medutbildning och rådgivning riktat till myndigheter. Samarbeten med gymnasieskolor,grundskolor och universitet i Göteborg- och Vänersborgsområdet har förekommit menhar blivit allt mindre i och med Covid-19-pandemins början i Mars 2020 och att debehövt lägga ett större fokus på tillsyn och rådgivning till myndigheter. De har dock ettsamarbete med Göteborgs Universitet och deras kurs Arkivvetenskap 60 HP därstudenterna kommer på föreläsningar på arkivet och får en rundtur i magasinen. Undertidigare år, det vill säga mellan 2000 - 2012 arbetade arkivet mer med utåtriktadverksamhet då de bland annan gav ut böcker om Göteborg genom ritningar ochGöteborgs 400-årsjubileum och har deltagit på Bokmässan i Göteborg.

    Den utåtriktade verksamhet som arkivet idag jobbar med är främst fokuserad på Arkivensdag och i sociala medier som Instagram och Youtube. Det material som Regionarkivetvisar upp på arkivens dag varierar beroende på det tema som valts för arkivens dag. 2020visades bilder och handlingar som rörde spanska sjukan och hur samhället hanterade denpandemin. Det material de publicerar i sociala medier varierar men kan vara bilder frånfotosamlingar på Göteborg eller bilder på Regionarkivets verksamhet. Intervjupersonernai studien hoppades att de i framtiden skulle ha möjlighet att arbeta mer med utåtriktadverksamhet i framtiden.

    Grammatikens vara eller icke vara: En undersökning om lärares tolkning av begreppet grammatik och deras genomförande av undervisning i grammatik på lågstadiet.2019Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this survey is to examine the way teachers relate to, define and teach grammar to pupils of the younger grades and the difficulties they encounter in teaching grammar. The research is based on interviews carried out among six licenced teachers, all employed in the same school and of whom one is a special education teacher. They teach classes in pre-school and primary school, grade 1¬3. Complimentary to the interviews, a general analysis of the teaching material used in their teaching, was carried out. Grammar and grammar teaching is a widely discussed topic, even if little is said about grammar teaching in the younger years. Altogether, the results of the study show, that the teachers taking part in the study regard grammar as a vague and unspecific term and the teachers define the concept of grammar differently. Another conclusion was that the attitudes towards grammar among the teachers varied widely. Some consider grammar difficult and boring while others believe it to be meaningful and easy to grasp. On the other hand, the teachers taking part in the survey agreed upon the importance of grammar and grammar teaching in the linguistic development of the pupils. The analysis of the teaching materials showed that some materials cover grammar as an clearly defined topic and formal grammatic terms were consciously used, while in others formal grammar as a topic was less evident.

    Digitala verktyg i svenskundervisningen: En kvalitativ studie om lärares arbete med och förhållningssätt till digitala verktyg i svenskundervisningen2019Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study presents, among other things, which working methods apply to digital tools in Swedish teaching that are most prevalent, what teachers think of that the curriculum was revised and if teachers in today's school have the digital skills needed to integrate digital tools into teaching. In addition, it is reported what advantages and disadvantages there are with using digital tools at the primary school. 

    In order to collect data for my study, I used qualitative interviews where five teachers were interviewed. 

    With the help of the socio-cultural perspective and the pragmatism's approach to learning, my results were analyzed. Results show that the teachers had a positive attitude towards digital tools and all felt that it was necessary to integrate digital tools already at the primary school. It can also be seen from the result that all teachers were in favor of the curriculum being revised and the teachers considered that they had the necessary digital skills. The positive effects that emerged from my results were, among other things, that the students get the habit of using digital tools and that they learn to handle the various tools. The negative effects that emerged from my result were mainly that it takes a long time to use the digital tools.

    Att bygga broar mellan gymnasiesärskola och arbetsliv: Två skolors strategier för elevers övergångsplaner2018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The study is based on a qualitative method, where I, on two schools, made interviews with principals, guidance counselors and teacher for students with learning disability.

    The data was analysed with theorybased qualitative analysis.

     The purpose of the study is to examine the strategies that some schools state that they have with their work about the transition from school to work for students with learning disability.

     The result shows that both of the schools see the importance that the students develop security and become independent. One way is to be prepared on what is expected of them when they enter the working career. To prepare the students for working life, the schools focus on what the students need for working career. One way is to make the teaching environment so similar to the reality that the students will meet later on.

     The students participate in different extent before the placements, but both of the schools sees the importance in listening to the students own expectations. It is also of great importance that there is a close contact between the school and supervisors at the internships.

     One request booth the schools expresses is that they would like to have more time with the students out on the placements

    Saxons Närkesarkiv: Enskilda arkiv är viktiga för kulturarvet2022Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Mitt syfte är att lyfta upp hur enskilda arkiv har ett stort värde för kulturarvet, då de inte är reglerade – och skyddade - på samma sätt som statliga och kommunala handlingar. För att undersökningen ska komma någonstans vart, gör jag en fallstudie där stiftelsen Saxons Närkesarkiv föll på min lott. Jag kommer tala med tre berörda personer, gå igenom stiftelsens handlingar samt litteratur skrivna av insatta personer. Mina huvudsakliga frågor är varför arkivet delades upp, varför Saxonarkivet är värdefullt för oss, varför det har blivit lämnat i det skick som det varit i och slutligen hur många personer i närtid har tagit del av arkivdelen.

    Redaktör Johan Lindström Saxon var en man med stora ambitioner i livet. Trots att han var född sjuklig i en bondefamilj utanför Örebro, lyckades han leverera stort inom tidningsvärlden och gjorde sitt namn känt. Han var både medlem i och skapare av flera föreningar samt utgav många böcker. Detta ledde till att hans inkomster blev stora och därmed hade han inga ekonomiska bekymmer med att börja samla in dokument, böcker, konst, kartor med mera – kravet var att de alla skulle antingen handla om Närke eller vara om eller av en närking. Drygt tio år senare startade han och hans fru upp en stiftelse – Stiftelsen Saxons Närkesarkiv. Med tiden bakade de in i stadgarna vilka som skulle sitta i styrelsen, att närkearkivet skulle övertas av stiftelsen samt 200 000 kronor i både kontanta medel samt aktier för att fortsätta samla in material, utge böcker och göra arkivet tillgängligt för allmänheten.

    Så blev det, till en början. Ju mer tiden gick, ju svårare fick stiftelsen få in engagerade styrelsemedlemmar. Arkivets ordning började bli lidande och slutligen räckte inte pengarna till. År 2007 begärde stiftelsen, med strax över 700 000 kronor på kontot, permutation hos Kammarkollegiet som godkände detta. Örebro kommun fick ta över arkivet som lät det ligga kvar i Örebro stadsbiblioteks lokaler. Bibliotekets anställda hade ansvaret och hade helt naturligt andra kunskaper och prioriteringar; därmed blev arkivdelen nerpackade i trälårar och undanstoppade i olika källarlokaler.

    När Örebro stadsarkiv tog upp frågan om Saxonarkivet med bibliotekets chef, började en lång resa där flyttlåda efter flyttlåda med material levererades till stadsarkivet från och med 2018. En grovsortering har krävt sin beskärda del och än idag är inte dess ordnande och förtecknande över det enskilda arkivbeståndet klart.

    Målet är att i år äntligen få göra arkivhandlingarna tillgängliga för allmänheten igen, så som Johan Lindström Saxons dröm en gång var.

    Förskollärares användande av IKT i förskoleverksamhet: En strukturerad systematisk observationsstudie2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The foundation of the Swedish preschool is based on the curriculum Lpfö98 /10. In these policy documents there are some different goals that the preschool teachers strives to use in the educational work. One of the learning objectives in the technology subject is to encourage pupils to develop through experience and guidance. The curriculum Lpfö98 /10, marks the importance, that the preschool teachers take responsibility for the pupils safety, their development and that every child has a good learning environment (Skolverket, 2010). The purpose with the present study is to examine how teachers use new information and communication technology in their everyday work. A research has been done in four different preschools in Sweden about the use of (ICT). The method used in the research is structured observations. The result of this study presents differences in how pedagogues act and support ICT in preschool, both in frequencies and choice of activity. The most common way of act and support ICT was when pedagogues helped the children in their use of ICT.

    Elever med Aspergers Syndrom: En studie om hur den traditionella skolan, respektive specialskolan arbetar med elever som har Aspergers Syndrom.2013Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the report was to compare the differences between a special needs school and a more traditional school when it comes to working with children with Aspergers syndrome. Furthermore I wanted to find out the differences in resources when it comes to helping these children.

    I used interviews as a method to elucidate how the schools work with children with Asperger syndrome. I interviewed teachers and special educational needs teacher from each of the two schools to understand how they worked in their respective schools.

    I investigated how they used their resources but also what kind of resources they had to work with. When I am talking about resources I am including both the economical resources and physical resources such as books, classrooms and technical equipment. Teaching skills development projects are also included.

    In summation I have concluded that my results points to an enhanced capability to take care of children with Asperger syndrome in the special needs school. They use a more individual based way of teaching and the special needs school is adapted for students with Asperger syndrome. The more traditional school have a tougher economical budget than the special needs school which makes it harder for the traditional school to help and individualize the education.

    Who is really in power here: A critical discourse analysis on the Facebook discussion concerning the media representation of Greekazo in Malou Efter Tio2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to investigate the confrontation of the Facebook group that was developed in response to the interview with the rap artist Greekazo in Malou Efter Tio. The study investigates the research questions: How is the discursive practice of Facebook utilized to challenge a mainstream television production? How are the stereotypes of contemporary marginalized rap artists reproduced in the Swedish news media? Our key interest lies in the moment of conflict between a section of the public and a mainstream media organization where we discuss how the media representation of a Swedish contemporary rap subculture is confronted by a minority of people online. To support the research questions, the study relies on two additional working questions: How do resistance and group formations develop in terms of dynamics within the Facebook comment section of Malou Efter Tio? Why are the stereotypes of contemporary marginalized rap artists reproduced this way in the Swedish news media? The focus is to analyze how the discursive formation of Facebook presents alternative viewpoints to challenge the mainstream media. 

    The theoretical framework of the essay is constituted by the theory of social discourse in which we have embarked on the critical discourse theory (CDA) by Norman Fairclough (1993). This approach uses theories and methods to theoretically problematize and investigate the relationship between the text, the discursive practice, and the sociocultural dimension (Fairclough, 1993; Winther Jørgensen & Phillips, 2000). The notion of media representation has been approached from two perspectives: The Agenda Setting theory and the Framing Theory, here we have particularly emphasized the idea of moral panic in which we have investigated how Malou Efter Tio was speaking about moral panic fears concerning the contemporary rap subculture in Sweden. 

    Previous research includes Djerf-Pierre and Shehata (2017) in which they applied the Agenda Setting theory in a Swedish news media environment, Nilsson (2009) who investigated the media representation in Swedish television, Lindholm (2014) who researched the notion of self-presentation in Swedish rap music, and Johnen, M., Jungblut, M. & Ziegele, M. (2018) who investigated what incites participation in online discussions. 

    In the analysis, we distinguished three prominent themes: social injustice, responsibility, and solidarity. These themes were established from the selection process in which 19 Facebook comments were collected and analyzed through the critical discourse analysis. The study showed how the Facebook discourse was utilized as a space for resistance of which the dispute betokened an abruption in ideology. This abruption was consequently challenged by the Facebook users in which they collectively built authority throughout the affordances of the Facebook discourse. The study will end with a discussion concerning the role of Facebook in a wider context in which the democratic space of the platform is contextualized from a societal and political point of view.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    This study is based on my previous experience from after-school centers, where I had the perception that the after-school centers provides few opportunities for media and IT usage and business thereby loses some children earlier. The purpose of the survey is to find out if there is a link between IT and media use in after-school centers and when children quits at after-school center. The study is based on these three questions: Do the children experience that there are too few opportunities to use IT and media on the after-school centers? If so, are the lack of IT and media on after-school centers a reason to children quitting? How are teachers' views on the after-schools centers IT and media usage? To answer them a survey with students and qualitative interviews with after-school educators, was conducted.

    Today's society has changed a lot in recent years. Digital technologies have a greater importance in children's lives. Very little research in this area is linked to after-school centers, but the use of media and IT can be beneficial for children’s development is a central position in the current discourse on the digitization of school. The results show that the children felt that it was a small media and IT use in after-school and that most would like to have more opportunities to use media and IT. After-schools educators showed an understanding of IT and media possible necessity in school, but it is not highly valued in the after-school center. Finally, the results showed also that the few opportunities for media and ICT use in the after-school center influence in the children's decision to quit the business.

    Lärares genusmedvetenhet: En kvalitativ studie om idrottslärares beaktning av genus i undervisningen2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This is an empirical study based on Physical Education and health (PE) teachers' experiences and builds on, for the study, significant literature. The study is about PE teachers’ consideration of gender in the assessment as well as in the selection of lesson content. Semi-structured interviews were employed as method for the data collecting process. Four teachers were interviewed, teachers of PE in elementary and upper secondary school with varied length of professional experience and ages. The interviews were analyzed by the means of content analysis. The results indicate that teachers are gender-aware in sense that they see the student or individual rather than a group of individuals, assesses students' progression rather than the immediate performance and offer a wide range of lesson content so that it will fit all students. Furthermore, the results indicate that gender-aware teachers reflect on their own gender awareness and on what they can do better. Without a gender thinking in school the teaching quality will suffer.

    In international studies like TIMSS u can see a descending trend in the results from the Swedish students. The purpose of this work is to investigate how teachers in there teaching work to help student with mathematical difficulties. In my attempts to find out how this is done I have interviewed teachers that teach first and second grade. My results show that the most important work isn’t about helping individual students but about changing the teaching for all students. The teaching needs to be less based on the textbook and contain more elements of handling concrete materials, discussion and co-operation between students. For this to happen the teachers need education and time to adapt to the new way of working.

    Collaboration without consensus - Free and Open Source Software as boundary object2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Free and Open Source software (FOSS) has become a popular research object amongst scholars from various disciplines. Within the last decade studies from the humanities critically assessed the social, political, economic and cultural significance of non-proprietary software. By doing so, these studies (just to name a few: Coleman, 2013; Kelty, 2008; Weber, 2004) have a perspective in common that highlights the debates and differences among its participants.

    This contribution adds to the growing body of these critical software studies by focusing on the divergences in FOSS, employing the concept of a boundary object (Star & Griesemer, 1989). Interviews conducted at FOSDEM (Free and Open Source software developer meeting) show that the non-consensual setup of FOSS lets people from different communities of practice use it as a common point of reference (Chrisman, 1999) while allowing different standpoints, opinions, motivations, and values. These differences can be categorised on three levels: The disagreements between advocates of Free and Open Sources software is nothing new. However, the humanities’ focus on peer production, and personae such as the geek, the hacker and the activist have overshadowed that FOSS pairs amateurs and professionals. The growing professionalising of FOSS brings forward the important contributions by entrepreneurs, lawyers, community managers, and – not least - for-profit software companies. Lastly, this analysis concerns the coordination of particular non-proprietary software development projects, exemplifying that participants are granted to leave collaborative projects by copying (forking) the source code, disentangling from a project in order to use the same code as the basis of a new project. By considering these three levels, this paper asks whether FOSS can be conceived as cooperative work that links communities together in collective activities and identities or an alternative set of terms needs to be adapted to capture FOSS and its potential social consequences.

    Pojkars inställning till dans: En studie i Sverige och Sydafrika2009Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This work has been to find out what attitude the boys have towards dancing. To gather material conducted interviews with four boys from Sweden and four boys from South Africa to examine the boy’s attitude towards dancing. I wanted answers if the gender, culture or generation has an effect on the boys' attitude to dance. Two interviews were made with a teacher in Sweden and one in South Africa, which had responsibility for dance lessons at the school. Through these interviews, I wanted to know how they are planning a dance lesson and what role dance have in school in these countries. Of the outcome, I can see a difference between boys' attitude to dance in Sweden and South Africa. Dancing in South Africa is in everyday life and is considered to be part of the culture. They are dancing at leisure and at school. Overall, it seems that the boys who where interviewed in South Africa thought that dancing was fun and something they did often. In Sweden, few of the boys are dancing. Dance, is as a hobby after school, an exercise. The boys who where interviewed in Sweden found that dance was more for girls, while boys in South Africa thought dancing was for all. The school conducted continuous dance lessons in South Africa and the students had theoretical and practical teaching of dance. In Sweden, includes dance instruction in physical education and health. The teacher that was interviewed in Sweden didn’t dance much with the students, perhaps some time per semester. Dances to learn in Sweden are mostly traditional couples dances while the South African students danced the traditional and modern dances from their own and others' cultures. The outcome of the interviews with the boys in Sweden and South Africa and the literature I conclude that boys and girls today are dancing individual and your own dance has become important in comparison with all couple dances in the past. Dance for the boys today is a way to find their identity and discover themselves.

    Grundsärskoleelevers inkludering i grundskolan: Några lärares perspektiv på vad som påverkar grundsärskoleelevers inkludering i grundskolan.2016Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study is to describe the perspectives of some teachers on how students in special schools are affected by being included into regular schools.

    The method used to collect the data has been that of the qualitative research interview. The study is based on seven interviews with teachers at special schools and teachers at regular schools who work with students with intellectual disabilities that are completely or partly included in the regular schools.

    The theoretical basis for the study is Nilholm´s (2007) description of three perspectives on special education, the compensatory perspective, the critical perspective and the dilemma perspective.

    The result of the study shows that there are multiple factors affecting the inclusion of students with intellectual disabilities in the regularly schools. The factors emerged in this study are: the school organization, the impact of teachers, such as their attitudes towards and knowledge of the practice of inclusion, the development of social and cognitive skills of the students, as well as the students’ expressions of affection. The results of the study show both possibilities and obstacles for including students with learning disabilities, but the obstacles are greater.

    The conclusion to be drawn from this study is that there exist great possibilities for the development of inclusion of students with intellectual disabilities in the regular school. The development is necessary on all levels of the school system in order to create the conditions for successful inclusion. In this process there will be a demand for special education teachers who are able to assess the individual needs of these students.

    ROLIGT, GEMENSKAP, VÄLMÅENDE: En intervjustudie av lagidrottare och gymutövares uppfattning av fysisk aktivitet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund Fysisk aktivitet är ett mycket populärt och omtalat begrepp i dagens samhälle. Det finns mängder av positiva effekter av att ha en fysiskt aktiv livsstil. Trots detta så är fortfarande en stor del av befolkningen fysiskt inaktiva, samtidigt som hälso- och träningstrender växer lavinartat. Genom att intervjua fysiskt aktiva personer utifrån andra perspektiv för att förstå varför de är aktiva.

    Syfte Syftet är att undersöka personer som är fysiskt aktiva om deras uppfattningar av fysisk aktivitet. För att göra detta har jag använt mig av begreppet physical literacy.

    Metod Studien är en kvalitativ intervjustudie som genomförts med hjälp av en intervjuguide som baserades på tre dimensioner inom physical literacy. Dessa är motivation, självkänsla samt kunskap och förståelse.

    Resultat Resultatet visar att den vanligaste motivationen för respondenternas fysiska aktivitet är personlig utveckling eller att det är roligt. Nästan alla respondenter upplevde att deras fysiska aktivitet påverkat självkänslan på något sätt. De gjorde även olika saker för att trivas i eller förbättra sin fysiska aktivitet. Inom kunskap och förståelse så hade respondenterna en generell uppfattning om den fysiska livsstilen som mycket betydelsefull, de upplever fördelar från detta i andra aspekter i livet.

    Diskussion Respondenterna uppvisar grunderna för aspekter kring motivation, självkänsla samt kunskap och förståelse inom physical literacy. Möjlighet till fortsatt forskning inom de resterande dimensionerna alternativt andra målgrupper.

    Asians in Sweden, anti-Asian racism and the emergence of a new Swedish racial minority2023Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This presentation consists of a text based study of Asians in Sweden and Swedish anti-Asian racism.The purpose is to account for and examine the incipient emergence of a new Swedish racial minorityin the form of Swedish Asians within the context of how Asians in Sweden are experiencing andresponding to anti-Asian racism as well as how Swedish society at large acknowledges the presence ofAsians in Sweden and the existence of anti-Asian racism within the country and how other minoritiesview and treat Asians.Theoretically, the study conceptualizes the on-going development of the emergence of a Swedish Asianminority as a racial formation and the examined text material is based on published original Swedishlanguage texts in the form of autobiographical books and media articles which Asians in Swedenthemselves have written or which are about the group in the form of for example interviews andreportages. The study argues that it was during the pandemic years of 2020-2021 that the Asians inSweden emerged for the first time as a Swedish racial minority and that this emergence must beunderstood as a result of previous Swedish Asian experiences of and responses to Swedish anti-Asianracism and Asians’ historical and contemporary relations to other minorities.

    Vilka metoder använder   förskolans pedagoger sig av för att främja kvalitetsutveckling?: En undersökning av vilka verktyg som förskolans pedagoger bedömer varamer främjande än andra för förskolans utvecklingsarbete2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    När kommunerna övertog utbildningsansvaret för förskola och skola på 90-talet uppmuntrades också förekomsten av lokal utveckling och mångfald och det var vid denna tidpunkt som ansvaret för kvalitetsutveckling av verksamheterna sköts ännu längre ut till att slutligen landa helt och hållet på rektorer och lärare. I samband med detta ökade krav på förskolans pedagoger och i samband med att förskolan fick en egen läroplan kom pedagogisk dokumentation att bli ett viktigt arbetsredskap för att följa barnens lärande och utveckling. Pedagogisk dokumentation har kommit att bli ett arbetsredskap som de allra flesta förskoleverksamheter använder sig av idag för att möjliggöra att detta krav blir till en realitet. Arbetsredskapet är dock ett väldigt brett begrepp som inbegriper flera olika verktyg som är användbara för att främja kvalitet och utveckling i förskolans verksamhet. Fokus för denna magisteruppsats har varit att undersöka vilka metoder inom pedagogisk dokumentation som förskolans pedagoger använder sig av för att främja kvalitetsutveckling, samt att undersöka om pedagogerna bedömer att några verktyg är mer främjande än andra för förskolans utvecklingsarbete.

    Med hjälp av webbenkäter har ett informationsunderlag kunnat samlas in via yrkesverksamma pedagoger i förskolan. Den insamlade informationen har sedan analyserats med hjälp av statistikprogrammet SPSS. Resultatet i denna studie visar att de verktyg som bedöms som mest främjande för förskolans utvecklingsarbete är förekomsten av olika former av måldokument. Även att kontinuerligt föra anteckningar kring de observationer och iakttagelser pedagogerna gör kring barnens utveckling och lärande är särskilt främjande i denna process. Kollegialt lärande anses också vara ett viktigt och uppskattat verktyg som främjar utveckling.

    Av undersökningens resultat är slutsatsen att de verktyg och metoder som ligger pedagogerna nära till hands också är de som upplevs vara mest främjande för förskolans utveckling.

    This study is about educators ' views on children´s safety in preschool. To produce a result for the study, I have chosen to conduct qualitative interviews. During the interviews, questions were asked about teachers ' views on children's safety in preschool and how they work with children's safety in preschool. The result showed that security is a prerequisite for children to learn in preschool and for them to dare to explore the preschool world. To get the children safe in the preschool, the result shows that it was of great importance that the educators were engaged with the children in order to create relationships with the children. Also respecting the integrity of children was part of the work to create security for children in preschool.

    Abstract [en]

    One of the biggest environmental issue on our planet is waste that have unnaturally ended up in our nature. By giving the younger children a certain understanding of why we need to take care of our planet, a greater commitment tosustainable development can be created. A broader understanding of the worldwe live in can be created by discovering and investigating the phenomenon ofdegradation. The purpose of the study is therefore to increase knowledge aboutchildren's perceptions of the organic and inorganic waste degradation process.Through this study, success factors can be made visible to further develop theindividual's knowledge.

    The data collection of this study uses group interviews with preschool childrenin the age span of 3–5 from two preschools from separate municipalities.

    The results of the study show that children have an understanding on the organic degradation process, while they had difficulty linking this process withinorganic waste. The analysis of the data collection refers to the fact that theresult has been affected by previous experiences of, for instance compost and recycling.

    Being able to present choices that children can make individually at an earlyage through preschool activities is extremely important, and therefor it´s goodto work a lot with for example compost and recycling. On the other hand, itwill also be important that the activities offer a greater understanding of whywe should take care of our planet and give children the opportunity to engagein questions about the environmental issues.
