Abstract [en]

Implementation of e-Government means cultural changes involving changes of attitudes and competences, apart from technological changes. There is a need for competence development of employees and citizens using relevant educational forms and pedagogical approaches. An interview study of a web-based course for issues related to implementation of e-Government is described and analysed. The course was developed with a study circle pedagogical approach. Interviews were made with eighteen respondents from different authorities, different geographical locations and different professional roles. The respondents were especially positive to the group discussions of the studied course. The discussions were relevant for support of behaviour changes and competence development related to implementation of e-Government. A study circle approach could be relevant in order to encourage development-oriented learning needed for implementation of e-Government. There is also a need for pedagogical learning of producers and organisers of web-based education in public organisation, in order to make them conscious about the importance of different pedagogical approaches for different education objectives.
