    Work-integrated-learning: So what?: A framework for describing the level of integration between work and learning2017In: ICERI2017 Proceedings, 2017, p. 443-451Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The knowledge society of today is characterized by a continuously ongoing technological development and digitalization that steadily calls for new competencies and transforms existing professions. For being able to provide up-to-date competence in a fast-changing labor market there is, perhaps more than ever, a need for extensive cooperation between Universities and surrounding society. A number of different models supporting the civic university has been established, e.g. “entrepreneurial university”, the triple-helix model and the increasingly popular adoption of “work-integrated learning” (WIL). 

    Work-integrated learning offer students authentic learning experiences and create synergy between theory and practice, e.g. by cooperative educational programs, internship, sandwich programs and case based teaching. Beyond the pedagogical benefits with experiential learning, WIL also supports the transfer between higher education and work, i.e. increases readiness, employability and also encourage a more agentic engagement. Furthermore, research results show that WIL-students have career benefits regarding salary in early career and job advancement. Even though, WIL and similar strategies for combining theory and practice seems to have promising pedagogical and career advantages, the theoretical underpinning is still underdeveloped. For instance, the methodology for how learning is promoted and which role external partners could play is vague. 

    At University West with more than 25 years’ experience of WIL a holistic approach to WIL have been adopted and WIL permeates all the Universities activities: education, research and extensive collaboration with the surrounding society. Over the years our efforts have been formalized and a taxonomy for will-activities have been developed. In sum, we know that WIL have promising potential, and we know what to do. But, in a recently performed study at this University, based on focus groups interviews and consolidation of our experiences we identified that even if the question “what?” is responded to, there is an important sub-question to be addressed, namely: “so what?”. When adopting different WIL activities, both small and large scale activities, e.g. a guest lecture or an internship, it is reasonable to reflect on whether these activities are used in an optimal way? What kind of impact does the WIL-activity imply? What could be achieved by successful integration between theory and practice? Could it be visualized?

    Inspired by models used for integrating technique in education (RAT, SAMR and TPCK-models), we have developed a framework for the progression of work-integrated learning in education. The framework is in a sense a model for “Wil-value”. This framework could be used on different levels and in different context: in a single course, educational program, in research projects, cooperation with surrounding society, mentorship and on partner workplaces.

    Work Integrated Learning: a Marriage Between Academia and Working Life2015In: Journal of Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics, ISSN 1690-4524, E-ISSN 1690-4524, Vol. 13, no 6, p. 38-46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a demand for increased cooperation between higher education institutes and surrounding society, and different frameworks for such cooperation have been developed. University West in Sweden has a profile calledwork-integrated learning which could be regarded as a systematical approach for combining theory and practice.Actually work-integrated learning has become an ideologyfor the University which permeates all activities, i.e. education, research and cooperation with surrounding society. This article is a review, explaining and exemplifying our approach. We will also discuss strategies and challenges for bringing the relationship between theory and practice into a prospering marriage.

    Designing a Web-Based Education Platform for Swedish Civic Orientation2014In: Proceedings of the 37th Information Systems Research Seminar in Scandinavia (IRIS 37), Ringsted, Denmark, 10-13 August. / [ed] Ahmad Ghazawneh, Jacob Nørbjerg and Jan Pries-Heje, Ringsted, 2014, p. 1-13Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Newcomers in Sweden face a problem of learning the Swedish society with respect to laws, culture, democratic values, education system, labor market and aspects of taking the role as a parent. The municipality of Gothenburg and the county administrative board in Västra Götaland are appointed by the Swedish government to educate newcomers in civic orientation. This paper describes some problems in providing distance education for Swedish civic orientation in forms of advanced learning modules (ALM). Requirements for implications for design were gathered through several conducted workshops together with relevant stakeholders through a participatory design approach. We concluded that our design for implications can be processed for future research and used together with a system solution.

    Theory, practice and synthesized knowledge: Students' learning  and reflections during internship-periods2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Courses with elements of internship are expected to bridge between different forms of knowledge domains and thereby contribute to synthesizing knowledge can easily be taken for granted. This requires a clear and systematic integration of theory and empirical knowledge, which can be seen as complementary opportunities. However, we still need more knowledge about how the relationship between different forms of work and knowledge domains can be understood. We have scrutinized the organisations, aims and approaches to knowledge and learning on internship­‐periods at two programs at a university where they outspokenly says that they see workplace settlement as a point of departure to reflect and synthesise knowledge in science and theory. The data consists of policy documents, curricula, student assessment work and written reflections of internship periods. Our results show that there are somewhat different conceptions of scientific knowledge, practice, knowledge, and the relationship between them. While some documents are based on theoretical perspectives other emanate from practical perspectives. In some texts internship is viewed as means to develop professional skills and other focuses theoretical analysis of practice, which have implications for pedagogical design. Ambiguous agendas are also reflected in students' assessments work where perspectives, focuses and reflections in and about situations differ depending on how students have perceived the aim with internship. Our conclusions are that ambiguity and different perspectives formulations may confuse students. To further develop internships pedagogically, an increased clarity and transparency is needed on both ontological and epistemological starting points and perspectives

    E-quality in infrastructures for learning in higher education2017In: ICERI2017 Proceedings, Sevilla, 2017, p. 408-413Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Higher Education has through the last decades been increasingly dependent on digital infrastructures (e.g. Svensson, 2002a; Guribye, 2005). The first generations of learning management systems (LMS) was originally designed to support distance education but quickly became the de-facto standard for supporting and developing also the practices of campus-based higher education. In this development we have noticed a tension between the desire to design closed LMS's that aims at providing "all-inclusive-support" for university education and more open and flexible solutions that support open infrastructures for personal learning. Consequently, it is time to re-visit the questions on what constitute the central values of a contemporary LMS seamlessly integrated with open digital infrastructures for learning. In an exploratory study in a Scandinavian University, a series of workshops and focus-group interviews with central informants from faculty as well as representatives from administrative support has addressed the issue of "E-Quality" in higher education. The result indicate that a set of inter-related core values should be stressed. These are briefly outlined below as principles for a framework of e-quality in higher education. (i) The principle of open participationAn LMS should support flexible integration of Open Educational resources (OERs) provided by an open community. Furthermore, the system should invite open access for participants from the surrounding society (i.e. practitioners, students from other universities, and relevant special interest groups) (Berhardsson et al., 2017)(ii) The principle of collaborative creation An LMS should embrace the notion of students as co-producers of instruction, content and learning outcomes. In particular, it should support collaborative authoring and peer-to-peer sharing.(iii) The principle of data-driven developmentA central aspect is the ability to personalize the support for each individual participant, which could be addresses quantitatively through learning analytics (Vallo Hult et al., 2017) and qualitatively through the use of e-portfolios and study diaries.(iv) The principle of work-integrated learningFinally, all priciples should be aligned to support an overarching goal of reducing the borders between studies in higher education, the introduction to a professional career, and the lifelong learning required to develop professionally (Svensson 2004).Further research will shed further light on the validity and the reliability of these principles, and set the path towards a nascent design theory for E-Quality in Digital Infrastructures for learning in Higher Education.

    Dimensions and perspectives of quality in integration work2016Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Social work organizations are faced with rapid changes that increase demands on quality and quality assessment. Before deciding how to assess quality, it is necessary to define what quality means with regard to a specific activity.Defining what is meant by quality is especially important before assessing the quality of integration activities developed for new immigrants. To address these issues, this study focuses on the concept of quality with respect to the efforts made to support immigrant integration in Sweden, through an activity called civic orientation. The data consist of interviews, observations, and video recordings of personnel working in an integration office. The results show how quality is manifested: firstly, in organizational structures for supporting and developing practitioners' knowledge; secondly, in standardized methods and material, and thirdly, in recognizing and attending to individual differences andthe sense of cultural belonging in daily interactions. One conclusion is that the knowledge of the integration workers – seeing and understanding the heterogeneity of immigrants' cultural backgrounds and bridging boundaries – isvital to the quality of civic orientation. That knowledge is central to the future organization of integration work, but could become invisible with a one-sided emphasis on standardization in quality work.

    Knowing in practice: the use of dialogue as a pedagogical method in integration work2015In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, ISSN 1799-649X, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 5, no 4, p. 168-176Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyses dialogue as an aspect of professional knowledge when integration workers are orienting newly arrived immigrants about Swedish society and everyday life in an integration activity called civic orientation. The data consists of interviews with integration workers and observations of classes in Sweden. The results show that using dialogue involves knowing how to mobilise a contextual foundation for mediating between different experience-based meanings and how to re-contextualise information, which requires skilful handling of various knowledge sources. To bridge between standardised information and contextually relevant meanings is central in integration processes and here, dialogue could support future integration work.

    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on nursing students' internships and how the students are handling the tension created by expectations and dilemmas when using medical records (MRs) in practice. The overall aim of this study is to develop knowledge about what is required by nursing students in order to coordinate and sustain knowledge through the use of MRs. The theoretical approach to learning that has been adopted implies that learning takes place in social activities, and empirically this means that the study of learning and professional knowledge is a matter of studying activities where, for example, technologies are put into practical use, where experience and knowledge are brought to life. The data consists of observations of five nursing students during their second year in nursing school, interviews and ten video-recordings from shift reports. The result shows that nursing students regularly use MRs as a source of information and that they are struggling with transforming that information into action-oriented knowledge. The conclusion is that information systems such as MRs need to be understood and defined by teachers as materials and devices created or adapted to solving practical problems, and should be treated thereafter. Providers of education need to take into account the different types of intellectual or practical knowledge that professionals like nurses are expected to have, where the use of technology cannot be separated from, but need to be integrated into other aspects of knowledge.

    Framtidens lärmiljö2016In: ViLär 2016, konferens 8-9 december 2016, Vänersborg / [ed] Kristina Johansson, Trollhättan: Högskolan Väst , 2016, p. 2-2Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Dagens samhälle kännetecknas av social differentiering och globalisering och digitalisering, vilket på olika sätt utmanar traditionella sätt att organisera högre utbildning. För att möta dessa utmaningar arbeta vi i ett projekt att utveckla en såväl fysisk som kulturell miljö som är inkluderande, stödjande samt stimulerar lärande och delaktighet. Det involverar den fysiska miljön såsom möbler, ljud och ljus, teknisk infrastruktur men också social miljö, pedagogik och organisering av högre studier. Men vad innebär det att studera på högskola eller universitet? Studenters lärarledda studietid varierar självklart men enligt Högskoleverket (2010:20) har var tionde student som studerar på heltid högst fyra timmar lärarledd undervisning i veckan och knappt 40 procent av samtliga heltidsstudenter anger att de har nio timmar eller mindre lärarledd undervisning. Det innebär att studenternas vardag domineras av själv-­‐ eller gruppstudier. Detta ställer krav på hela studiemiljöns utformning och vi behöver t.ex. fundera över de gemensamma ytornas utformning så att de stöder både lärande och social samvaro för en differentierad studentgrupps olika behov. Vi menar att medan flera projekt och satsningar i Europa har haft studenten eller tekniken i fokus så är lärande utgångspunkten i vårt projekt, där teknik, infrastruktur och fysisk och virtuell miljö, relaterar till pedagogiska processer och aktiviteter som involverar flera olika aktörer. Lärandet omfattar olika aktörer såsom lärare, studenter, forskare och administrativ personal. I projektet utvecklar en inkluderande lärmiljö som stöder ett flexibelt lärande där olika deltagare möts och utvecklas och där mötena och lärandemålen avgör vilka resurser som behövs. Resurserna kan vara materiella såsom t.ex. digitala redskap eller fysisk miljö samt intellektuella såsom kunskaper eller relationer. Men vi tror att det är viktigt att flytta fokus till lärandet och den lärande, och att studera hur och i vilka sammanhang t.ex. de digitala möjligheterna kommer bäst till nytta. Vi ser teknik, ljussättning, möblering i lärosalar och gemensamhetsutrymmen som viktiga delar i utvecklingen av en inkluderande lärmiljö som utgår från ett emancipatoriskt förhållande där uppgiften är att stödja studenternas förflyttning till ett mer centralt och aktivt deltagande i samhällslivet. Frågorna får både pedagogiska och didaktiska konsekvenser och visar på områdets komplexitet, där vi kan utvecklas tillsammans och lärmiljön blir utifrån det perspektivet någonting mer än bara undervisningens innehåll. Vi tar därför avstamp i skolans vardag och de pedagogisk utmaningar och möjligheter som finns.

    Learning integration-work through transnational digitalized courses2017In: INTED2017 Proceedings, 2017, p. 8018-8018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In both political discussions and integration assessments questions are often raised about social services role in inclusion for people of foreign descent. Such questions are highly relevant in a contemporary society that is characterized by growing social and cultural differentiation. The overall aim of this presentation is to contribute to our understanding of how knowledge about integration work is developed by students who takes part in a webbased, transnational course where they use digital learning platforms for communication, coordination and organisation of learning activities. Analytically, such a focus is pursued employing a socio-cultural perspective on learning where practical actions and the design of the course have been scrutinized. The motive for introducing a webbased transnational course in the area of integration was that there were an increasing amount of refugees migrating to Europe. Integration became a part of everyday work for a lot of professions, teachers, nurses and more. However, working with integration was not something that their professional education supported but they all expressed a need for more knowledge. But integration workers are assumed to have specific knowledge that is necessary to realize their work tasks. In the work with creating an integration-course one conclusion was that all welfare work is generic, which means we cannot only look at the content of the work, instead one must put it into more multifaceted perspective that includes several professionals knowledge domains, service-organization assignment, legislations and cultures related. Simultaneously, another university had the same ideas, which resulted in a transnational webbased course with students from different professional fields. All students, as well as the teachers, where interviewed in the beginning and in the end of the course about their expectations about the content and the form. The results demonstrate that using learning platforms to make sense in transnational education settings presupposes extensive knowledge of the indexicality of categories and concepts, something that could be assumed if the participants' had a shared professional history. Instead, as the students have different backgrounds the teachers have to account for the local hermeneutics needed, and for the knowledge embedded in information and categories. It is in the process of reliving, creating and exposing the meaning of information, that students and teachers actually bring information in education to life. In further development of transnational webbased courses it is important to not see this development as solely technical or organizational questions. To develop courses that increase the possibilities for students in different faculties with different routines etc. to make sense of information may be a much more demanding task than it seems to be. Such boundary-crossing teaching are nevertheless of great importance for the development of integration work as well as pedagogical competence in higher education.

    Abstract [sv]

    Utbildningar med inslag av verksamhetsförlagda utbildningsmoment har funnits under lång tid och de förväntas ge kunskaper och färdigheter och brygga mellan olika kunskapsformer och därmed bidra till en syntetisering av kunskap. Syftet med studien är att bidra till kunskap om hur lärandemål i verksamhetsförlagda kurser kommer till uttryck i studenters examinationsuppgifter. Resultatet bygger på analyser av styrdokument och kursplaner samt 26 studenters examinationsarbeten från deras verksamhetsförlagda kurser, från två olika utbildningsprogram. Resultaten visar att utbildningsanordnare har delvis olika föreställningar om vetenskaplig kunskap, praxiskunskap samt relationen dem emellan. Medan vissa dokument utgår från teoretiska perspektiv i sina definitioner så utgår andra från mer praktiska perspektiv på vad kunskap är och var den finns. Verksamhetsförlagd utbildning ses i ett program som ett medel för att utveckla yrkesspecifika kunskaper och i det andra programmet fokuseras teoretiska analyser av praxis. Dessa olikheter får konsekvenser för både utformning av uppgifter och för hur studenterna förstår och skapar mening men också för vilka kunskaper som utvecklas.

    Transforming information into practical actions: A study of professional knowledge in the use of electronic patient records2012Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, technologies are being introduced into historically established settings, which change the conditions for work as well as for work-integrated learning. In health care, electronic patient records (EPRs) has been implemented during the last decades to serve as a tool for planning, decision making and evaluation of care work. The overall aim of the research presented in this thesis is to analyse the complex actions and interactions that occur when EPRs are used in health care practice. Analytically, such an interest is pursued employing a socio-cultural perspective on workplace studies, where the use of technology is studied in action. Through three separate studies, practical actions and practical use of EPRs have been examined and the empirical data draws on observations, video-recordings, audio-recordings and documents from a hospital ward in Sweden. The result shows that technologies such as EPRs both offer and presuppose standardization of terminologies and information structures. This, however, does not mean that EPRs completely format and structure information, or that it is driven by its own logic. When staffs comply with a set of standards, transformations of those standards will gradually occur. Those transformations are collective achievements and since each professional involved act in a conscious and active manner, this affects the use of standards as well as the development of collective proficiency. The results also demonstrate that meaning making in(through) the use of EPRs presupposes extensive knowledge of the indexicality of categories, something that originates in the participants‘ shared institutional history. It is in the process of reliving, creating and exposing the meaning of information, that health care professionals actually bring information in EPRs to life. In further development of EPRs that exceeds institutional and even national boundaries it is important to see this development not as solely technical or organizational questions. To develop systems that enhance the possibilities for professionals in different institutions with different professional domains to make sense of standardized information may be a much more  demanding task than it seems to be. Such boundary-crossing systems are nevertheless of great importance for the further development of health care practice.

    Electronic patient records in action: Transforming information into professionally relevant knowledge2011In: Health Informatics Journal, ISSN 1460-4582, Vol. 17, no 1, p. 51-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The implementation of generic models for organizing information in complex institutions like those in healthcare creates a gap between standardization and the need for locally relevant knowledge. The present study addresses how this gap can be bridged by focusing on the practical work of healthcare staff in transforming information in EPRs into knowledge that is useful for everyday work. Video recording of shift handovers on a rehabilitation ward serves as the empirical case. The results show how extensive selections and reorganizations of information in EPRs are carried out in order to transform information into professionally relevant accounts. We argue that knowledge about the institutional obligations and professional ways of construing information are fundamental for these transitions. The findings point to the need to consider the role of professional knowledge inherent in unpacking information in efforts to develop information systems intended to bridge between institutional and professional boundaries in healthcare.

    Electronic patient records in interprofessional decision making: Standardized categories and local use2012In: Human Technology, ISSN 1795-6889, E-ISSN 1795-6889, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 46-64Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Electronic patient records (EPRs) are a constitutive element of medical practice and are expected to improve interprofessional communication and support decision making. The aim of the current study is to explore the ways in which access to structured information from multiple professions within EPRs enters into the phases involved in arriving at final agreements about patients' future care. The results show that decision making in interprofessional team rounds involves a prestructuring of a pathological reality. Further, the results demonstrate how information in EPRs is deconstructed and recast into patterns that presuppose knowledge about the EPR's structural organization. This means that EPRs are highly flexible technologies and that their design does not determine their usefulness. A major conclusion is that the members' knowledge on how to bridge between standardized categories in EPRs and their local meanings is decisive for understanding the basic conditions necessary for how EPRs could support interprofessional collaboration.

    The development of mobilizing pedagogical strategies2016In: ICERI2016 Proceedings: 9th annual International Conference of Education, Research and InnovationSeville, Spain. 14-16 November, 2016. / [ed] L. Gómez Chova, A. López Martínez, I. Candel Torres, IATED Academy , 2016, p. 6923-6923Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In contemporary society, questions are often raised about the relation between education and integration of immigrants and people with a foreign background. In that context, pedagogical efforts have been made to combine educational and social interventions, emphasizing issues of inclusion, mobilization and learning processes. The overall aim in this study is to identify and explain how pedagogical strategies with respect to inclusion processes has evolved at a school for adult Roma students. Such pedagogical strategies are seen as crucial for improving immigrant conditions and opportunities and the data collection took place at a school with an outspoken Roma-profile in Sweden. In all, eight teachers and one principal were interviewed and the following research questions are addressed: What are the relevant aspects of social pedagogy in inclusion processes? How are these social pedagogical strategies distributed individually and jointly in a school context? The results show how the historical roots and theoretical foundations of pedagogical thinking and action take place as a "facilitator" and guides the teachers actions. To recognize the students cultural belonging and having a dialogical approach works as cultural bridging which actually to some extent transformed the teachers daily work from teaching to also embrace cultural broking-strategies to enforce learning processes.

    Local knowing and the use of electronic patientrecords: categories and continuity of health care2012In: Health and technology, ISSN 2190-7196, Vol. 2, no 3, p. 185-196Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The electronic patient record (EPR) is a constitutive element of medical practice and can be conceived of as a multi-purpose tool that is intended to support a range of activities such as planning, decision-making and evaluation. Each of these activities is quite complex in its own right. The aim of the present study is to explore how the standardized format of EPRs intervenes in the work of sustaining continuity in patients ' care. In doing this we analyse ow this standardized format contributes to structure the production and use of information concerning patients' mundane problems in the context of rehabilitation. Data consists of observations, informal interviews and video-recordings from a ward for patients affected by stroke. The results show that there is a tension between the highly uniform structures and standards for documentation in EPRs, on the one hand, and, on the other, how information is designed and put into use by care providers. When staff members use EPRs, they constantly have to contextualize what is written in relation to what they know about patients and/or the current situation. On the local level, the increasing standardization that follows the introduction of EPRs will make it even more necessary for professionals to engage in such interpretative work to close the gap between the standardized categories of the EPR and contextually relevant health care interventions. In spite of requests for increasing standardization there will always be a need to adapt to specific needs for more flexible information structures. Otherwise, there may be the risk that non-standard features the initial standardization was intended to reduce may be re-introduced.
