Abstract [en]

Research topic/aim Topic: Work Integrated Learning. Changes are part of our everyday life, so even of working life. There are various incentives for wanting to change something at work. When it comes to public organizations, there is a social responsibility to be organized in order to respond the needs and conditions of the society. Such an awareness, can be expressed in strategic plans in order to lead the organization in a intended direction and towards predetermined goals. The challenge is then to implement this in a complex organization with many areas of expertise. This requires communication between actors, where argumentation, negotiation and meaning-making becomes important. The interaction between the actors will have a crucial role for the interpretation of the goals and concepts. Furthermore the interaction will contribute to the "production of knowledge", therefore, the conditions for this need to be studied. The aim of the study is to describe how different concepts, related to the goals and visions, are interpreted by actors in different parts of the organization and how the knowledge and responsibility is negotiated by these actors in multiple settings. Based on this, I examine the transformation of knowledge, through discussions about the concepts. Theoretical and methodology framework The study has a socio-cultural approach to generate understanding of the interaction between different domains of knowledge. The data consist of observations of inter-professional meetings and related documents. Furthermore, data has been collected in three steps; 1) general goal documents, 2) observation of meetings, and 3) amended documents. Expected findings The discussions that take place in different settings and between different professionals highlights importance of the interaction. It illustrates that expert knowledge is important for the actors as they discuss the practical use of different concepts. The way that various professions contribute to the conversation, with specific examples and arguments, leads to meaning-making and knowledge about shared collective thinking and learning. Relevance to NERA The research highlights particular field of pedagogy, namely Adult learning-at work
