Abstract [en]

Education programs with internship components have been around for hundreds of years and are expected to provide knowledge and skills that students need for their future profession and future requirements in a changing environment and market, to move from being peripheral to being a master. The expectation that an internship can bridge different forms of knowledge systems, and thus, contribute to synthesizing knowledge, can easily be taken for granted. However, we need more knowledge about how the relationship between different forms of work and knowledge domains can be understood. The aim of the study is to develop knowledge about the relationship between various models of work and    knowledge domains. We examined the organization and implementation of  internships in two programs at a university in Sweden, which have internships and state that they see workplace setting as a point of departure to reflect and synthesize knowledge in science and theory. The data consists of policy   documents, curricula, and student assessment work and written reflections on internships. The results show the programs have somewhat different conceptions of scientific knowledge, practice, knowledge, and the relationship between. Documents from one program are based on theoretical perspectives, but those from the other program have a practical perspective. In some texts, an internship is viewed as a means of developing professional skills and in others, as a means of theoretically analyzing practice. These differences have implications for   pedagogical design, and how students understand and make meaning and what knowledge is developed. We conclude that ambiguity and the formulation of different perspectives may confuse students. To further develop internships  pedagogically, increased clarity and transparency are needed at ontological and epistemological starting points and perspectives.
