    ”Det är en kulturell tradition att hålla på med friluftsliv”: En studie om hur universitetslärare anser att kulturtraditioner påverkar friluftsundervisningens innehåll i ämnet idrott och hälsa2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study is to examine how representatives in the form of teachers at physical education teaching schools look at Sweden's cultural traditions and its impact in relation to outdoor activities in the education. The study is based on a qualitative methodology based on semi-structured interviews with seven university professors from different schools. The study results have been analyzed from “Nyinstitutionell” organizational theory and concepts such as regulative-, normative- and cultural conditions as well as isomorphism.

    The results reveal that the respondents have a similar picture of the content and the cultural traditions that should be addressed in outdoor education. The results also suggest that this consensus is based on Sweden's strong cultural traditions in outdoor activities, which have a strong foothold in the specific institutions. Furthermore, the respondents believe that the cultural traditions that exist in Sweden, promote the training and education that is carried out. Cultural traditions are seen as the core in Swedish outdoor activities, both from a social perspective and teaching perspective.

    The respondents also believe that the outdoor activities education that is conducted in today's primary and secondary schools are of varying quality, but that the physical education teachers should concentrate on outdoor activities in the local community, with a focus on “allemansrätten” (the right of public access), a basic outdoor life and create opportunities for students to feel safe in outdoor environments. The respondents also reveal that outdoor education is suffering from various organizational factors due to the element of outdoor activities being considered time consuming.

    Friluftsliv i idrott och hälsa: En kvalitativ studie av friluftsliv i gymnasieskolan och hur undervisningen sker, samt vad som bedöms och betygsätts2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study is focused on creating a deeper understanding for how physical education teachers educate, assess and grade students for outdoor living “friluftsliv” within high schools’ physical education program. The individual teacher’s definition of the concept outdoor living “friluftsliv” and how teachers in schools today define outdoor living within the physical education curriculum is also presented.

    The underlying method for the study is qualitative. The research was performed through interviews with physical education teachers at six different schools in neighboring districts.

    The results show that there is ambiguity in the curriculum creating significant opportunities for interpretation by the individual teacher. This result, however, is considered positive by the majority of teachers, as it allows them to dictate a large portion of the curriculum content. The results also show that almost all teachers feel there are significant differences in the content of the education and, as a consequence, evaluation and grading can lead to unfair grades.

    The study also shows that all teachers stress the importance of maintaining the culture and tradition of outdoor living that Sweden has.

    Lokala historiska besöksmål: En kvalitativ studie om hur dagens historielärare på gymnasiet brukar den "praktiska undervisningen"2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this report is to investigate and analyse whether active teachers are using local historical points of interests in their teaching of history, as well as the benefits and disadvantages the teachers consider themselves to find in regards to this method of teaching. Furthermore, local historical points of interests and their ability in order to affect the historical consciousness as well as the use of history among the students, will be reported. The method that has been used for the purpose of this study, is a qualitative investigation, of which eight teachers in history have been interviewed at schools in the municipalities of Växjö and Karlskrona. The findings of the study indicates, that the teachers as a matter of fact use local historical points of interest on a regular basis in their teaching of history, with city tours and museum visits being used as the foremost methods. Several teachers find the use of local historical points of interest as positive, as well as the value of a varied education in a new environment.

    However, the teachers consider the disadvantages regarding this method of teaching to be the short matter of time alongside with the coast of travel. Above all, educational methods such as museum visits often have a tendency to take longer time due to the aspects of both planning and implementation, causing difficulties in the schools at the present time. Moreover, a result regarding students' conditions with reference to their development in history consciousnesses as well as use of history is reported. The teachers do consider the use of local historical points of interest to be useful in order to encourage the students' use of history and history consciousness.
