Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to provide insights into how dance teachers experience observing their own dance lessons and how this experience is articulated in order to create awareness of the development of dance teachers' own teaching. The interests of this study lie in what the dance teachers are reacting to, what actions they perform as well as how these reactions and actions are manifested in the body. Two dance teachers at the Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences in Stockholm were observed and filmed giving dance lessons to student teachers of Physical Education and Health. Different situations from the lessons were discussed during a re-experiencing conversation. Using a phenomenological methodology for analysis and empirical-data generation, the results are discussed using the kinaesthetic communicative concepts of interaffectivity and interbodily resonance (Fuchs 2016). The results indicate that observing one's own teaching is a valuable tool for dance teachers, as it allows them to reflect upon aspects of their teaching pedagogies and possibilities for their professional development. As well as this, the results show that teachers' teaching goals and objectives are important parameters for what they react to in teaching situations.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna artikel är att skapa kunskap om vad det är danslärare upplever när de observerar (sin egen) dansundervisning och hur detta artikuleras för att skapa medvetenhet och möjlighet för utveckling av sin egen undervisning. Intresset ligger i vad danslärarna reagerar på och vad som ger en aktion och hur dessa reaktioner och handlingar manifesteras i kroppen. Två lärare på Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan (GIH) i Stockholm observerades och filmades under danslektioner med idrottslärarstudenter. Från videoklippen av lektionerna valdes olika situationer och diskuterades under ett så kallat återupplevande samtal. Studien har ett fenomenologiskt perspektiv såväl vad gäller att generera data som en metod för analys och resultaten diskuteras utifrån de kinestetiskt kommunikativa begreppen interaffektivitetoch mellankroppslig resonans (Fuchs 2016). Att observera sin egen undervisning verkar vara ett värdefullt verktyg för lärarna att reflektera över didaktiska överväganden och möjligheter till att utveckla undervisningen. Syfte och mål med undervisningen verkar vara viktiga parametrar för vad danslärarna reagerar på i undervisningssituationen.
