Abstract [en]

In 2014, a newly formed group of teachers graduated from Swedish universities. In addition to their qualification as leisure-time pedagogues, their degree includes teaching practical/aesthetical subjects in compulsory school. This group of teachers thus has to relate to dual professional identities and to maintain a balance between the socially oriented leisure-time centres and a goal- and results-driven school. In this article we describe their first two years after graduation, trying to get hold of their negotiation of professional identities and orientation in the professional landscape. Results shows that the graduates try to balance own ideals and hybrid professional intentions against traditional professional identities and labour market conditions and that position in a liminal phase might be crucial for the outcome.

Abstract [en]

Far from all who complete teacher education end up working as teachers throughout their entire career. At first sight the value of teacher education, in terms of efficiency, seems to be a failure. In the present article we argue that teacher attrition, when defined as whether one is working as teacher or not, is a too blunt measure to gauge whether teacher education has been valuable. With a unique dataset, where we have detailed information on 87 Swedish teacher graduates’ working life across 23 years, we can consider whether activities and/or experiences point to an apparent use of teacher education. In conclusion, we find that in order to get informative estimates of its value it is important to consider it from different perspectives and to consider attrition related to the total working time spent in educational settings across a career rather than percentage leaving teaching after a set of years.

Abstract [en]

In this article, some initial findings from a research project where the practice/theory relationship and collaboration between schools and universities in teacher education are studied. The purpose of the study is to highlight possible effects of a work-integrated teacher education. The empirical base are eight interviews where university teachers describe how the increased time spent in schools might influence student teachers´ performances in university courses. Are any dimensions of teacher competence developed? The answers from the university teachers are first categorized into three themes, namely knowledge of subject didactics, connections theory/practice and practice/practice and finally in relation to the student teachers as legitimate participants. The themes are thereafter related to the concepts of spectator-knowledge and participant-knowledge and to Biestas (2012) concepts: qualification, subjectification and socialization. In conclusion, findings indicate that the “work integrated profile” have potential to balance these purposes of education.

Abstract [en]

The present case study is part of a larger project where the overall ambition is to understand how an organization, through its way of arguing for the failures in student teaching, at the same time constitutes what is accepted as sufficient teacher quality. The article examines the students short comings from the supervisors and teacher educators perspectives. The analysis shows that the indicators of failure include passivity and rigidity, lack of posture, social timing and selfawareness. The indicators can be categorized into two groups of failures, "those that are of too light weight" and "those carrying some weight". Critical for the categorization was the time for the discovery of the short comings as well as the assessors' experiences of hope for development. The result is then set in relation to the on-going discussion in Sweden about the possibility of introducing an aptitude test before admission to teacher education.
