Abstract [en]

The aim of the pilot study is to generate knowledge about how to support preschool teacher students' abilities to communicate the results of the Degree Project related to previous research and teaching as profession. More specifically, we aim to investigate into what aspects are discerned and noticeable and come into foreground. Relation to previous work on the learning process (Marton, 2015) and teachers-students' global competencies (Tarrant, Rubin & Stoner, 2013). The theoretical base of the study is variation theory (Marton, 2015) and its theoretical concepts of variation and discernment. Video-observation is used for capturing verbal expression. The participating students gave informed consents to the video recording and how it will be used. Recordings are stored in accordance with rules and guidelines of Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet, 2011). The global/Nordic classroom seems to help students catch sight of the similarities and differences in a metaperspective, in relation to the Degree project, but also to the profession. Preliminary results show that student seem to make independent judgments and commute between the scientific and professional. Findings support further tests of the possibility to let students write their Degree project in a specific field such as Early Literacy and implement ''webinars'' in the global/Nordic classroom.
