Adapting standardised teaching material to suitlocal learning conditions
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Standards have become generic elements in welfare practices and are expected to facilitate procedures and secure a uniform service to all citizens. This study investigates the knowledge involved in making practical use of a standardized teaching material to meet a diversity of knowledge needs in an integration activity aiming to support newly arrived immigrants' participation in society.Through video observations, interviews and document studies, the sequential structuring of information is reorganized into narrative patterns that presuppose knowledge about how different pieces of information relate to one another, andhow they work together in relation to different cultural expressions. It is argued that the procedural knowledge and scope of action intrinsic in bridging between different boundaries is decisive for understanding the basic conditions necessary for how a standardized teaching material can support processes of meaning making in integration work.
