    "200 meter, varav 50 meter i ryggläge": – En studie om utvalda skolors simkunnighet i årskurs 62014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte

    Mitt övergripande syfte med uppsatsen är att jämföra hur simkunnigheten ser ut i årskurs 6 utifrån hur lärarna arbetar med simundervisning i två olika skolor.

    Frågeställningar

    – Hur organiserar och arbetar idrottslärarna med simning i skolan?

    – Hur ser simkunnigheten ut bland elever i årskurs 6?

    Metod

    En kvalitativ och en kvantitativ metod i form av enkäter och intervjuer har använts för att få frågeställningarna besvarade. De som deltog i enkätundersökningen var elever i årskurs 6 från en skola i Stockholmsstad och en annan skola på Lidingöstad. Eleverna fick besvara frågor om hur deras simkunnighet ser ut idag och vart de lärt sig simma. De som intervjuades var tre lärare i idrott och hälsa, en från skolan på Lidingö stad och två från skolan i Stockholms stad. Frågor som besvarades handlade om hur de bearbetar och organiserade simning i sin skola.

    Resultat

    Intervjuresultatet från lärarna visar att båda skolorna har samma upplägg. Eleverna får lära sig simma i lågstadiet och sedan, när de blir äldre och ska få betyg, har skolorna simtest, vilket innebär att eleverna får simma 200 meter varav 50 meter i ryggläge. Klarar eleverna testet får de godkänt i simmomentet. Simtestet visar att 78 % och 73 % av eleverna i skolorna får godkänt i simtestet. 7% och 12 % av eleverna klarar inte simtestet och får då betyget F i idrott och hälsa. 15 % av eleverna i vardera skola är frånvarande under simtestet. Vidare anser lärarna att det i första hand är föräldrarnas ansvar att lära barnen simma men i och med att det finns som ett kunskapskrav i läroplanen så är det nu också lärarnas ansvar.

    Slutsats

    Resultatet visar att båda skolorna arbetar likartat och har samma problem, vilket är att få tillgång till simhallen. Detta kan kopplas till ramfaktorsteorin som säger att om det finns ett krav i läroplanen ska det finnas möjlighet till att uppfylla kraven, som i detta fall tillgång till simhallar. Utifrån transformeringsarenan i läroplansteorin kan läroplanen tolkas olika av lärarna. Även här diskuteras hur man ska tolka simningskravet. Kan man simma 150 meter hundsim och 50 meter flytandes på rygg med bensprattel?

    Engströms praktiker i praktiken: en studie om gymnasieelevers praktiktillhörighet utifrån Lars-Magnus Engströms teorier.2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aim

    The purpose of this study is to research and map Swedish secondary school students’ taste for sports (practice belonging) based on Lars-Magnus Engström’s practice division. The purpose is also to explore how gender, participation in organized sports and socioeconomic capital might be related to practice belonging. The study will also explore what type of learning the different practices contributes to. – How is the practice belonging among Swedish secondary school students? – Is there a relationship between practice belonging and learning?

    Method

    A survey was conducted on 270 Swedish secondary school students. The students went to three different schools, all located in the Stockholm suburbs. The results were analyzed in SPSS and significance levels were tried through Pearson’s Chi-Square test. The study’s theoretical base consisted of Bourdieu’s concept of habitus, Vygotsky’s sociocultural learning theory as well as Hirdman’s and Fagrell’s rendering of the gender system. 

    Results

    Challenge, physical training as well as competition and ranking were practices who most felt a strong belonging to. Skill training was a practice that boys to a larger extent than girls belonged to and movement to music was a practice that girls in a larger extent than boys belonged to. The students who had a higher grade in PE felt a strong practice belonging to all practices but movement to music as well as interaction with animals. There were no significant results between economic capital and practice belonging. Those with a high or semi-high educational capital felt a strong practice belonging for all practices but movement to music, interaction with animals and competition and ranking. The students who were participating in organized sports felt a stronger belonging to all performance practices as well as physical training and skill training than those who weren’t participating in organized sports. The results in the comparison between practice belonging and learning showed that those with strong practice belonging to a greater extent agreed with the assertions connected to the practice’s learning.

    Conclusions

    There seems to be differences in practice belonging depending on which gender one belongs to. One’s practice belonging can also differ depending on educational capital and participation in organized sports. It seems to be some practices that to a greater extent lead to a higher grade in PE. The results also indicate that there is learning within each practice.

    Att lära sig vara hälsosam: en fallstudie om arbetet i en hälsoprofilerad skola2011Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    Aim

    The aim of this study has been to investigate how a health-profiled school works with its’ health promotion and if the studied school fulfils the stipulated criterias for a health-promoting school.. The more specific issues are:

    1. What are the chareteristic of the school's health promotion?
    2. How does the designated key persons describe their work and responsibilities in the school's health promotion?
    3. What results of the school's health promotive actions are visible?

     

    Method

    A case study method was used to collect data for the study. This case study includes both qualitative interviews and a textual content analysis of related documents (evaluated reports, the school’s business plan and text from the school’s website). The selected school has been based on a strategic sample of schools. Five persons have been interviewed. As a theoretical frame work a sociocultural perspective on learning has been used.

    Results

    The school’s healthpromotion has a structure, announced in their business-plan, with a so called Health Team in the lead. Besides that, the school has been certified by Korpen’s health diploma. The school’s Health Team is the main hub of the school's health promotion and consists of the principal, the physical education (PE) teacher, the health educators, the school nurse, and the school restaurant manager. The principal sees himself as the overall responsible for the school's health promoting. The PE-teacher, the health educator, and the school nurse find it natural to work with health promotion within their profession. The restaurant manager, sees his primarily responsibility as to ensure that there is a nutritionally balanced diet offered in the school restaurant. The respondents stated the importance of their role as role models. Communication and engagement are key components in their health promotion. Regarding  aspects of the departure points for the learning of health, it reveals that the Health Team sees the interaction between the individual and context as essential components for their work. It comes foreward that the result of the school’s health promotion work is difficult to assess, or make visible. There have been attempts to measure the impact of the health promotion, but the respondents note that ensuring out comes of health promotion is a long-term goal.

    Conclusion

    The conclusion of the study is that the studied school fulfil the existing criteria for a health profiled school. The school has a structure, an organization and a distinct approach to learning about health. From a sociocultural perspective on learning, the school’s health promotion is characterized by an approach to learning as a social, situated and distributed. The key persons’ (the Health team) goal of theír health promoting is to let the students embrace tools and acquire different patterns of health promoting behaviors and actions. The effect or rather the results from their health promoting appear to be difficult to measure and therefore it is important to see the important to see health promotion from a long term perspective.

    Tillsammans får idrotten ett lyft: idrottslärarens och idrottsledarens inställning till samverkan inom Idrottslyftet2011Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte och frågeställningar: Syftet med den här studien var att i ett mångkulturellt område undersöka idrottslärarens och idrottsledarens inställning till samverkan inom Idrottslyftet. Frågeställningar var följande:

    1. Vilka hinder respektive möjligheter upplever idrottsläraren med samverkan?
    2. Vilka hinder respektive möjligheter upplever idrottsledaren med samverkan?

     Metod: Undersökningens underlag bestod av intervjuer vilka har studerats med en kvalitativ metod. Urvalet utgjordes av tre idrottslärare och tre idrottsledare verksamma i mångkulturella områden. Materialet transkriberades och analyserades utifrån ad hoc-metoden.

    Resultat: Idrottslärarna ser samverkan som ett sätt att ge elever möjlighet att komma i kontakt med föreningsidrotten. Svårigheter som idrottslärarna upplevde där brister finns berör ledarbiten.

    Idrottsledarna ser samverkan som en möjlighet att möta och rekrytera barn i deras föreningsverksamhet. De ser samverkan som ett sätt för barnen att komma i kontakt med idrotten. Svårigheter som idrottsledarna nämnde gällde sådant som berör planering och tidsramar.

    Slutsats: Både idrottslärarna och idrottsledarna är generellt positiva till samverkan. Samverkan fyller en funktion och anses ha ett stort värde för de barn som inte har habitus att vara fysiskt aktiva på fritiden och/eller som har svårt att få kontakt med idrottsföreningarna. Samverkan fyller dessutom en funktion hos idrottsföreningar eftersom detta leder till nyrekryteringar i deras verksamhet. Eleverna och idrottsföreningarna vinner alltså på samverkan vilket blir ett lyft för idrotten. Men både idrottslärarna och idrottsledarna anser att det finns brister med systemet. Brister som är kopplade till de tidsramar som tillåts inom samverkan.

    On practising in physical education: outline for a pedagogical model.2018In: Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, ISSN 1740-8989, E-ISSN 1742-5786, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 197-208Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Models-based approaches to physical education have in recent years developed as a way for teachers and students to concentrate on a manageable number of learning objectives, and align pedagogical approaches with learning subject matter and context. This paper draws on Hannah Arendt’s account ofvita activato map existing approaches to physical education as oriented towards: (a) health and exercise, (b) sport and games, and (c) experience and exploration.

    Purpose: The aim of the paper is to outline a new pedagogical model for physical education:a practising model. We argue that the form of human activity related to practising is not well represented in existing orientations and models. To sustain this argument, we highlight the most central aspects of practising, and at the same time describe central features of the model.

    Relevance and implications: The paper addresses pedagogical implications the practising model has for physical education teachers. Central learning outcomes and teaching strategies related to four essential and ‘non-negotiable’ features of the practising model are discussed. These strategies are: (1) acknowledging subjectivity and providing meaningful challenges, (2) focusing on content and the aims of practising, (3) specifying and negotiating standards of excellence and (4) providing adequate time to practising.

    Conclusion: The practising model has the potential to inform new perspectives on pedagogical approaches, and renew and improve working methods and learning practices, in physical education.

    Tränare och Riksidrottsförbundets policydokument, Idrotten vill: en studie med fokus på barnfotbollstränare utifrån ett Idrotten vill perspektiv2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning

    Uppsatsen handlar om fotbollstränare för barn inom föreningsidrotten och då främst om att synliggöra den verksamhet som tränarna bedriver ur ett Idrotten vill perspektiv.

    Syfte och frågeställningar

    Studiens syfte är att undersöka om fotbollstränare i sin verksamhet för barn och ungdom i storklubbar använder och bryr sig om Riksidrottsförbundets policydokument Idrotten vill.

    Frågorna som vi utgick ifrån var:

    • Arbetar tränarna (medvetet eller omedvetet) efter de riktlinjer som Riksidrottsförbundet (RF:s) policydokument föreskriver.

    • Om inte dokumentet (Idrotten vill) är utgångspunkten för verksamheten, vad används istället.

    • Vilken betydelse får det för verksamheten om inte dokumentet ligger till grund för tränaren?

    Metod

    För att få en uppfattning om fotbollstränares kunskap om och praktiska tillämpning av policydokumentet för barn och ungdomar i storklubbar valde vi att intervjua fem barn- och ungdomstränare. Fyra av tränarna kom från storklubbar i storstadsregionen. Med storklubb menar vi klubbar som har sin verksamhet i större städer. Den femte tränaren var från en storklubb utanför storstadsregionen. Alla tränarna var män.

    Resultat

    Resultatet visar att RF:s policydokument, Idrotten vill inte har implementerats i föreningarnas verksamhet. Riktlinjerna för barnidrott följs inte av de intervjuade tränarna från storstadsregionen.

    Slutsats

    Idrotten vill dokumentet har till synes liten inverkan på tränarnas verksamhet för 10 -åringarna i storstadsregionen. Tränaren utanför storstadsregionen följer noga sin förenings policydokument vilket inte verkar vara fallet i storstadsregionen. Av svaren kan vi dra slutsatsen att tävling och rangordning prioriteras före allsidig utveckling i barnens fotbollsverksamhet. Uttagning till utvecklingslag sker ibland före 10 års ålder vilket går stick i stäv med Idrotten vills riktlinjer. Alla fotbollstränarna från storstadsregionen använder sig oftast av sin egen fotbollserfarenhet vid planering av barnidrottsverksamheten. Fotbolltränarnas egen erfarenhet kan innehålla Svenska fotbollsförbundets basutbildning och mångårig erfarenhet av eget spel. Man kan fundera över om Svenska Fotbollförbundets utbildningar och egen erfarenhet från träning och spel avspeglar de värderingar kring barnidrott som skrivs fram i Idrotten vill.

    ”Kan jag verkligen simma?”: en jämförelse mellan skattad och faktiskt simförmåga bland elever i årskurs 62015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aim

    The purpose of this study is to examine swimming ability for students in grades 6 and to compare pupils’ estimated and actual swimming ability based on knowledge requirement for swimming in Lgr11.

    1. What percentage of the pupils estimate themselves as swimmers?

    2. What percentage of the pupils are swimmers according to the observation?

    3. Are the pupils’ estimated swimming ability in line with their actual ability to swim?

    Method

    The study intended to investigate both estimated and actual swimming ability. Therefore, two different methods were used, a survey and an observation of a swimming test. The survey and observation were carried out at one time, and were based on the knowledge requirement for swimming in the Swedish curriculum Lgr11. The survey measured the pupils’ estimated swimming ability and the test measured the pupils’ actual ability to swim. The comparison between estimated and actual swum distance was conducted with a paired t-test and the comparison between estimated and actual swimming ability was conducted with a Chi2 test. The sample consisted of 102 students in elementary schools 6th grade from two schools in Stockholm County.

    Results

    All participants stated that they can swim.

    89.6% of the students could be considered as swimmers based on the estimation and 97% of the students could be considered as swimmers based on the swimming test.

    There was no significant difference between the pupils estimated and their actually completed distance.

    There was no significant difference between the pupils estimated and their actual swimming ability, however, there was a tendency that the pupils underestimated their ability.

    Conclusions

    The conclusions are that the survey results for the proportion of swimmers students (97%) agree well with the results from the Skolverkets (2014) recent report (95.4%), and that students tend to underestimate their swimming ability.

    Simundervisning, på lika villkor?: En undersökning av hur lärare i Stockholms län bedriver sin simundervisning2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte och frågeställning:

    Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur grundskolelärare i idrott och hälsa, verksamma i Stockholms län, bedriver sin undervisning mot simkunnighet. Detta syfte besvaras med hjälp av följande frågeställningar:

    • Hur definierar lärare i idrott och hälsa begreppet simkunnighet?
    • Hur arbetar lärare i idrott och hälsa för att uppnå simkunnighet hos eleverna?
    • Vilka faktorer anser lärare i idrott och hälsa påverkar simundervisningen?

    Metod:

    För att besvara studiens syfte och frågeställningar genomfördes fyra kvalitativa intervjuer med grundskolelärare i idrott och hälsa, verksamma i Stockholms län. Urvalet baserades på två parametrar, avstånd till simhall och ekonomi.

    Resultat:

    Resultatet visar att lärarna bedömer elevernas simkunnighet utifrån definitionen i Lgr11, men att de använder sig av den nordiska definitionen vid simtester. Samtliga lärare arbetar för att eleverna ska nå simkunnighet genom att bedriva olika former av simskola och simträning. Gemensamt mål med all undervisning i simning är att eleverna ska nå kunskapskravet, ’’eleven kan även simma 200 meter varav 50 meter i ryggläge’’ (Skolverket 2011, s. 58-61). En av faktorerna som styr hur simundervisningen bedrivs är just lärarnas mål med undervisningen, att eleverna ska nå kunskapskravet. Övriga faktorer som påverkar hur simundervisningen bedrivs är avstånd till simhall samt skolledningens inställning, vilken påverkar lärarens resurser såsom ekonomiskt upplägg, tillgång till personal och tid för undervisning. Resultatet visar även att faktorer som påverkar elevernas möjlighet att nå simkunnighetskravet är elevens fysiska förutsättningar (ex. motorik och kondition) och bakgrund (etnisk, religiös och kulturell).

    Slutsats:

    Utifrån studiens resultat är slutsatserna att kunskapskravet för simkunnighet i Lgr11 borde kompletteras till den nordiska definitionen av simkunnighet, “Simkunnig anses den vara som kan falla i vattnet, få huvudet under ytan och efter att åter ha tagit sig upp till ytan, kan simma 200 meter på djupt vatten varav 50 meter på rygg” (Svenska simförbundet 2014-08-21). Detta för att bidra till en mer likvärdig undervisning och bedömning. Undervisningen på skolor är situationsanpassad och målet med simundervisningen är att eleverna uppnår kunskapskravet. Den starkaste faktorn som påverkar simundervisningens upplägg är avståndet till simhall och den största faktor till att elever inte uppnår simkunnighet beror på elevens fysiska förutsättningar och bakgrund. Resultatet pekar mot att det snarare är ett områdes socioekonomiska situation än kommuninvånarnas ekonomiska förutsättningar som påverkar simkunnigheten.

    Hälsoskolor kontra ”vanliga” skolor: skiljer sig undervisningen i ämnet idrott och hälsa?2005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aim

    The purpose of this study is to investigate how schools who have a health concentration and schools who haven’t are teaching physical education and if possible compare these schools.

    This study is based on following questions: How do schools with a health concentration and schools who haven’t, in compulsory school, teach physical education and health. How do physical education teachers describe their teaching and how do the students describe it.

    Method

    My study is a qualitative study based on interviews with teachers and students from different schools. The interviews have been made on four different schools from all over the country. I have interviewed one physical education teacher and four students, two boys and two girls, from each school. The schools, participating in the study, are one health promoting school from the northern part of Sweden, one health school from Stockholm, one “ordinary” school from Stockholm and one “ordinary” school from the ambient parts of Stockholm.

    Results

    The physical education teaching doesn’t part between schools who have a health concentration and schools who haven’t. The pupils´ on every interviewed school consider that the teaching contain different activities. The most common activities according to the pupils´ are ballgames, gymnastics and strength. Most of the pupils interviewed have the opinion that physical education and health is fun. Both physical education teachers and the pupils think that the learning’s are connected with health. The teachers think that the pupils´ possibility to influence the teaching is much bigger than what the pupils think.

    Conclusions

    In the end I reached the conclusion that the teaching in physical education and health, didn’t contain any differences between the schools who had a health concentration and schools who hadn’t.

    Idrott och hälsa på ett yrkesförberedande gymnasium: En pilotstudie på Fredrik Bremers fordonsprogram årskurs 12008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 5 poäng / 7,5 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte

    Med denna uppsats vill jag belysa hur elever på Fredrik Bremer, yrkesförberedande gymnasium åk 1 prioriterar ämnet idrott och hälsa. Hur viktigt anser de att ämnet är för dem nu, i framtiden och i kommande yrkesroll? Jag vill även undersöka om de har förslag på förändringar i undervisningen. I så fall, vilka?

    Metod

    Undersökningen är av kvalitativ art och bygger på intervjuer. Jag har valt att använda mig av gruppintervjuer med en utformad intervjuguide. Jag agerade som frågeställare. Elever från fordonsprogrammet åk 1, (läsår 07/08) från tre klasser blev intervjuade. Det totala antal elever på fordonsprogrammet årskurs 1, är 48 stycken. Jag valde sedan ut och fördelade eleverna i 3 grupper med 4st i varje. Med stöd av intervjuguiden öppnade jag upp till en diskussion som inspelades med diktafon.

    Resultat

    Resultatet av intervjuerna sammanställdes i en kort sammanfattning efter intervjuerna. I det avslutande diskussionskapitlet görs en större analys och reflektion.

    Man kan kort sammanfatta det eleverna säger med: att samtliga elever tycker ämnet är viktigt. Den största andelen av eleverna anser sig ha en bra hälsa.

    På frågan om vad de anser om ämnet nu på gymnasiet jämfört med på högstadiet så säger samtliga att det var bättre på högstadiet. Man ansåg att det fanns en bättre struktur, ett bättre ledarskap och en mer varierad undervisning. Eleverna förstår också vikten av ämnet inför kommande yrkesroll. Det säger att de förstått innebörden av ergonomin. Eleverna är mycket missnöjda med utfallet av undervisningen av både ergonomin och idrott/hälsa. De föreslår en rad förbättringar.

    Slutsats

    Det studien kommit fram till är att ämnet idag inte fungerar som eleverna önskar. Eleverna ser gärna en rad förändringar exempelvis, tydligare ledarskap, mer strukturerat upplägg, en större variation, ett större medinflytande i ämnet. Idrott och hälsa väcker mycket känslor. Insikten om hur viktig hälsan är visar eleverna stor kunskap om. Vid övergången till gymnasiet försvinner mycket av glädjen och motivationen.

    Gymnasieskolan har en viktig uppgift att ta hand om, utveckla och bejaka elevernas intresse för ämnet. Att så inte sker fullt ut på Fredrik Bremer gav mig en tankeställare på om hur vi som lärare mer måste ”lyssna in” vad eleverna anser. Viktiga variabler som kan förbättras anser jag vara elevinflytande, struktur, tydligt ledarskap, variation, anpassning av undervisningen till elevunderlaget.

    Specialidrott eller inte?: Kan elever från riksidrottsgymnasiet i karate jämföra sig med svensk karate elit?2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Summary:

    Introduction: Specialised physical education has been in school since the 70’s and has made it possible for many young students to be able to combine school and elite sports at the same time. It has been created RIG (national sports high schools) and the substance special sports education has been added as a course at secondary school. The purpose of RIG was to enable talented young people to combine elite level sports and high school, since high school considered a trigger point for when the elite venture begins. RIG also means to practice a lot and to compete with many of the best in the same age groups. The RIG system has produced many Swedish elite athletes in different sports. Aim and questions: The purpose of the comparison is to se whether RIG- training may have contributed to the development of high school students so that they can be compared with national elite. Is there any difference between national elite and karate upper secondary students in jump, reaction and explosiveness in relation to specific jump tests? Are there any difference between national elite and karate upper secondary students in training plans and goals? How do the RIG-education develop students to get to the elite level? Method: Jump Tests as optimal drop jump test (DJ), countermovmenttest (CJM), squat jump (SJ) and stiffness jump was performed. The test subjects ware three women and nine men students. The test subjects from the national team consisted of four women and eight men. There was also a survey that aimed to identify the athletes training schedules and goals with their workouts. Results: There were significant difference in the womens group on drop jump 40 cm test and CJM. Men's results revealed significant differences in SJ with visual reaction in height and stiffness jump average contact time. According to the survey, it was a differs in a half strength and fitness workouts between national active athletes and students. Both groups trained match training and situational training, but only students accrual their training in the form of pre-, during- and post-season and trained technique training. The students also had more specific goals with training. Conclusion: The education aim to enable students to take responsibility for their training and for each grade train more elite-oriented and systematically to reach the elite, the curriculum in this education and the continuous training have led the students to develop towards achieving elite level. This seems to have been among the contributing factors to that there are few significant differences between groups in relation to the tests and survey questions. RIG-students can compare themselves to national elite in relation to the jump test, training schedules and goals. Students have clearer goals and more planned approach to training than national elite.

    Abstract

    Aim: Since there is a lack of research based educational interventions concerning the relationship between coaches and young athletes, the aim of this study was to implement and examine the effects of sport psychology intervention for coaches in a track and field club. The research questions were: What are the effects of an educational intervention for coaches, with focus on a motivational climate, on: A) the coaches´ coaching approach B) their athletes´ goal orientation and C) their athletes´ perceived competitive anxiety?

    Method: The coach education stretched over two months and consisted of four two-hour lessons with focus on motivational climate, goal orientation and sport anxiety. Six coaches (three females, three males), aged 38-52 (M=44.33 years, SD=4.84) and their 59 athletes (27 males and 32 females) aged 12-14 (M=13.10 years, SD=0.82), participated in the study. A control group of 35 athletes (10 males and 25 females), of the same age (M=13.46 years, SD=0.70) and with similar demographic data, was also recruited. Potential effects of the intervention on the coaches and athletes were captured by measuring key constructs twice (pre-/post-test). Measures included a study-specific motivational climate questionnaire for the coaches and two validated questionnaires for athletes: the Achievement Goal Scale for Youth Sports (AGSYS; Cumming, Smith, Smoll & Grossbard 2008) and Sport Anxiety Scale-2 (SAS-2; Smith, Smoll, Cumming & Grossbard 2006). Descriptive statistics, repeated ANOVA and repeated MANOVA were used to analyze the data.

    Results: The analyses showed that the participating coaches experienced positive behavioral changes among themselves regarding support of autonomy, belonging, competence, and encouragement to task orientation, five months after the intervention had taken place (F (1, 5) = 6.49, p < .051,  = .56). The analyses did not reveal any statistically significant changes concerning neither the athletes´ goal orientation nor sport anxiety over time or compared to the control group.

    Conclusions:The study indicates a continuous need for longitudinal research based sport psychology interventions, especially towards individual sports since they, in many ways, differ from team sports. Future studies ought to complement with qualitative measurements which can bring deeper understanding of how, when and why changes occur. Despite loss effects in the athletes, the coaches´ perceived behavioral changes in themselves indicate that educational interventions are worthwhile in the long run.

    Komplex rörelse med en god kvalité", vad är det?: En kvalitativ undersökning bland lärare i idrott och hälsa på gymnasiet.2013Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aim

    The aim with this essay is to investigate how six PE teachers asses the students in context to a complex movement structure with a good quality. The questions in this essay are

    How do four PE teachers interpret the expression "Complex movement structure with great movement quality"? Do the teachers have any mutual frame of reference regarding this knowledge? How do the PE teachers think about the progression from primary school to high-school regarding complex movement structure with great movement quality? Do the PE teachers have any tools to assess the students’ knowledge based on these words?

    Method

    Qualitative interviews with half structured questions were used as method in this essay. Six PE teachers from Stockholm participated and the sex was equal. The PCK theory was used as theoretical frame.

    Results

    The teachers claimed that many parts in a movement make it complex. Good technique, tactics, good condition and team sports was common examples for a complex movement.

    The students must, according to the teachers have to know many different movements in different activities before they can call it good movement quality.

    Measure tools to asses these movements were common among three of the six PE teachers.

    No one of the teachers had any assessing frame according to complex movements with great quality

    Individual adaptations, interest and developing movements was common answers according to the progression.

    Conclusions

    The teachers’ thoughts about complex movements, progression and quality were in line with previous research. 50% of the teachers had no tools to measure these movements.

    How Wii Teach Physical Education and Health2016In: SAGE Open, ISSN 2158-2440, E-ISSN 2158-2440, Vol. 6, no 4, p. 1-8Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of educational computer games in physical education (PE) has become more popular in recent years and has attracted research interest. The aim of the article is to investigate how physical activities and images of the human body are offered by the game. The results show how the “teacher” constituted in the games is one who instructs and encourages the players to exercise and think about their bodies, but not a “teacher” who can help students to investigate, argue, or discuss images of health and the human body. We argue that the use of a wide range and variety of ways of teaching would make the teaching richer and offer a deeper understanding about the body and health.

    What do Wii teach in PE?2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In society, video- and computer games are often pointed out as risk factors in relation to physical inactivity, sedentary behaviour as well as increasing levels of obesity. At the same time, computers are an important source of knowledge where IT-competence and IT-experience provide pronounced advantages in society.

    In the middle of this paradox a new type of videogames is introduced, where body movement and physical activity constitute the central element. These games, so called exergames or active video games, are games where physical movement is involved in the game through the use of for example balance-boards, step-up boards and dance-pads. Exergames are now more and more put forward in several countries as interesting tools to use in physical education in order to stimulate young people to be physically active.

    In a recent review and synthesis of research on video games and health, Papastergiou (2009) strongly argues that videogames can offer ”potential benefits as educational tools for Health Education and Physical Education, and that those games may improve young people’s knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours in relation to health and physical exercise” (Papastergiou, 2009, p 603). However, Vander Schee and Boyles (2010) argue that exergames rather should be seen as a body pedagogy producing certain narrow meanings about health, and that the uncritical implementation of exergames in school is a problematic way to place commercial products in school. Consequently, there are differences in views regarding exergames in educational settings that are worth paying attention to in research about people’s learning about the body, physical activity and health.

    The aim of this paper is to investigate how images of the human body are expected to be learned when using exergames.

    The use of artifacts – physical objects made by humans – is a central part of human life. In fact, there are many activities that would not be possible to perform without the use of them. In schools, students learn to use paper and pencils, computers, vaulting-horses, footballs and so on. How and why artifacts are supposed to be used in educational settings is however not given beforehand (Cuban 1986). The use of artifacts mediates certain meanings about the view of learning and the goals and choices of content in education (Almqvist 2005, Quennerstedt et al in press).

    In this paper, we will use discourse analytical strategies in order to analyse how meanings about the body are expected to be learned when playing exergames. The discourse analytical strategies involve an interest in how processes of discourse constitute how we experience or relate to ourselves as well as our environment (Laclau & Mouffe 1985). Discourses constitute what is possible to say or do as partial and temporal fixations (Foucault 1980). These fixations are imbued with power, values and ideologies. As Evans and colleagues argue: “/…/ health beliefs, perceptions and definitions of illness are constructed, represented and reproduced through language that is culturally specific, ideologically laden and never value free” (Evans et al 2008 p 46).

    To investigate what these games offer we have explored the manuals, the content, the animations of the games as well as the instructions and comments offered during game play. The empirical material consists of exergames most commonly used in schools: Wii fit and Wii sports (sports active).

    In the discourse analysis we have explored what is taken for granted in the empirical material in relation to other possible ways to argue. In this way we can explore what is included and excluded in the games and what is possible to think and act in relation to statements concerning the body.

    The analysis shows how the logic of the game, its animations, instructions and feedback to the player, constitutes the ideal body as a physically active, well-balanced, slim and strong body. The use of the game, the balance board and the hand control, makes it possible to measure and register how the player follows this logic. The analysis also shows how the way the player is supposed to learn about the body is strongly influenced by behaviorism. In the paper we argue that this way of learning about the body is narrow and limited and that it is important to critically discuss the effects of the use of these games in schools.

    Abstract [en]

    Aim

    The aim of the study was to investigate if and how Physical Education (PE) teachers, with an education from the Swedish school of sports and health science (GIH) and a maximum work experience of 3 years work with norm critical teaching according to the study factors social class, gender and ethnicity. Moreover, an aim has been to investigate what kind of pedagogical tools the interviewed teachers have received from GIH to prepare them how to teach with these factors in mind. Research questions:

    • How do the teachers work norm critical in their teaching according to social class, gender and ethnicity?
    • How has the teacher education at GIH prepared the teachers to work norm critical with these factors?

    Method

    The study was carried out in a qualitative perspective and in-depth interviews were used as research method. One PE teacher teaching in the Swedish compulsory school participated in the pilot interview and five PE teachers teaching at Swedish high schools participated in the study. All respondents in the study have finished a teacher program at GIH and a maximum of 3 years’ working experience as a PE teacher. An interview guide was created according to Lindström’s model of PCK.

    Results

    The Result shows that the interviewed teachers work in a norm critic way to some degree when it come to gender through discussions and gender tasks. Furthermore the result shows that the respondents show some sort of Pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) when it comes to norms regarding gender, something that they do not have when it comes to norms regarding social background and ethnicity. Moreover the result shows that the respondents have acquired a theoretical knowledge and some practical knowledge about gender norms from GIH. When it comes to theoretical knowledge concerning social background and ethnicity norms all the respondents agree that this knowledge have been included minimally in their education. The didactical knowledge about these norms was not included in their education or was discussed at very few occasions.

    Conclusions

    The teachers of the study show similar working methods regarding norm critical pedagogy. According to Lindström’s PCK model, the teachers do not work norm critical. Though, they do in some extent work norm critical regarding gender, but this work does not exist regarding the factors social class and ethnicity. The teachers under study rather work actively with the norms and value principle stated by curriculum. Furthermore they work with gender in a task oriented way. The reason for this can be linked to GIH’s teacher program since the education focus on gender, the other factors, social class and ethnicity only is emphasized briefly during the education.

    Otrygghet i omklädningsrummet: En undersökning om elevers erfarenheter av otrygghet i omklädningsrummet orsakad av mobilkameror2017Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte och frågeställningar

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka gymnasieelevers erfarenheter av otrygghet i skolidrottens omklädningsrum orsakad av kränkande fotografering med mobilkameror. För attta reda på detta utgår vi ifrån frågeställningarna nedan.

    1. Hur många av eleverna har någon gång känt sig otrygga i omklädningsrummet?
    2. För hur många av eleverna har denna otrygghet orsakats av mobilkameror?
    3. Hur många av eleverna har blivit utsatta för kränkande fotografering i omklädningsrummet?
    4. Skiljer sig antalet otrygga tjejer respektive killar.

    Metod

    Vi genomförde en kvantitativ studie med hjälp av en enkätundersökning innehållande frågor kring elevers personliga upplevelser och erfarenheter från hela skolgången. Populationen var gymnasieelever i Sverige varav urvalet bestod av fyra klasser med sammanlagt 83 elever. Bearbetning av data från enkäterna genomfördes i statistikprogrammet SPSS. Resultaten analyserades utifrån socialpsykologisk teori och den feministiska objektifieringsteorin.

    Resultat

    Vår studie visar att mer än en tredjedel av eleverna känner en otrygghet i omklädningsrummet i samband med skolidrotten. Problemet är nästan dubbelt så stort hos tjejerna jämfört med killarna, resultaten visar däremot att skillnaden mellan könen inte är signifikant. Elevers kameratillgång i omklädningsrummet visar sig ha en bidragande orsak till otrygghet. En av eleverna från vår studie har även blivit utsatt för kränkande fotografering i skolidrottens omklädningsrum.

    Slutsats

    Genom den socialpsykologiska och den feministiska objektifieringsteorin kan vi förklara varför en tredjedel av eleverna känner otrygghet i omklädningsrummet. Med en syn på kroppen som ett objekt jämför de sig själva och andra utifrån samhällets normer. Detta gäller alla elever men framförallt tjejerna, där otryggheten är som störst.

    Abstract [en]

    Aim

    The aim of the study is to gain insight into how physical education teachers reflect on peerassessment in Physical Education (PE). The study was limited to investigate teachers’ conception of peer assessment. The study also examines whether teachers can describe anymethods of peer assessment that they use or have used in their teaching, and what strategic choices they talk about when they describe their methods.

    Method

    Qualitative interviews were used to collect data. The interviews can be referred to as in-depthinterviews with a particular focus on concepts. The interviews are semi-structured in nature as an interview guide was used. The study used a non-probability sample and participants were chosen based upon a subjective selection technique. Five PE teachers in Stockholm (Sweden) were interviewed and their statements were audio recorded. Their statements were transcribed to provide a valid basis for interpretation.

    Results

    The results show that the interviewed teachers associate peer assessment with feedback. Furthermore, it appears that four out of five teachers talk about methods of peer assessment. Some of the methods may serve as tools for formative peer assessment. Three out of the five teachers describe video recording when they talk about methods and two out of five teachers describe different kinds of rubric handouts. Four out of the five teachers’ response indicated that that they occupy a dualistic perspective on body and movement as they talk about peer assessment.

    Conclusions

    The study describes the diversity and complexity of the concept of peer assessment. It was possible to discern that the teachers who told that they actively use peer assessment have intended on key variables, which could be related to the diversity of peer assessment. It is clear from the teachers rubric handouts that they may have missed important variables whenthey designed their rubrics. The final conclusion is that it is important for teachers who intend to implement peer assessment to look in to the research available. This study recapitulates achecklist, a step-by-step guide and many important variables in the creation of rubric handouts.

    Respekt i skolan: Elevers och idrottslärares syn på respekt och samarbete i grundskolans lägre åldrar2012Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte och frågeställningar

    Syftet med detta forskningsarbete är att skapa en djupare förståelse för hur elever och lärare resonerar kring respekt och samarbete.

    Forskningsfrågor:

    Hur resonerar idrottslärare kring samarbete och respekt?

    Hur resonerar elever kring samarbete och respekt?

    Till detta följde en fördjupning av fenomenet respekt.

    Metod

    Vid datainsamlingen användes tema-intervjuer av halvstrukturerad kraktär då en intervjuguide användes vid samtliga samtal. Då erhölls svar från 6 st informanter, två lärare och fyra elever, samtliga informanter var antingen lärare för- eller elever i grundskolans yngre åldrar.

    Resultat

    Resultatet visade att lärarnas resonemang om respekt handlade om att kunna lyssna på eleverna, att man visar varandra lika värde. En av lärarna uppfattade respekt sammanlänkat med beundran som något positivt och respekt sammanlänkat till rädsla som något negativt. Den andre läraren menade att respekt inte är någon obehaglig känsla men att respekt som beundran var missbruk av respekt. En av lärarna nämnde även att eleverna visade respekt då de tog hänsyn till lärarens roll och inte blev för personliga. Eleverna och lärarna hade en liknande uppfattning om samarbete, flera som jobbar eller gör något tillsammans och att någon inte gör allt. Eleverna framförde att ett respektfullt beteende kunde vara att inte handla destruktivt mot andra eller mot miljön, att hjälpa sina kompisar när de behövde och att lyssna på lärarna. Eleverna hade likväl olika resonemang om respekt om vilka beteenden som gav respekt.

    Slutsats

    I resultaten går det att urskilja att elevernas resonemang är lika på vissa punkter. Det finns även en hel del av elevernas resonemang som skiljer sig åt i kompexitet och skarpsynthet. Denna forskning visar att några elever var bättre än andra på att uttrycka sig. En av lärarna hade ett intressant resonemang kring vad detta kan innebära i verkligheten, de elever som var duktiga på att sätta ord kunde göra samma dumma grejer i alla fall. Det är alltså svårt att veta om elever och lärare verkligen agerar utifrån sina resonemangen. Det behövs troligtvis en mer djupgående forskning som tar hänsyn till kroppsliga uttryck för respekt för att få en holistisk bild av lärares och elevers förståelse av respekt och samarbete.

    Vem är idrottslärarstudenten vid GIH?: en studie som jämför år 2008 med år 20112011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The aim of this study was from a sociological approach examine differences and similarities between the students who started the Physical Education Teacher Program at the Swedish School of Sports and Health Sciences (GIH) in 2008 and 2011.

    • What background has the GIH-student?
    • What sport experience has the GIH-student?
    • What are the student’s perceived knowledge and skills in Physical Education?
    • What attitude towards the subject Physical Education and the Physical Education Teacher Program does the GIH-student have?

     

    Method: The method used for this study was a quantitative method and the research was carried out through a questionnaire. The questionnaire was answered by 100 students who were accepted in 2011 at the Physical Education Teacher Program (GIH).

    In 2008, data was collected through the same questionnaire answered by 77 students who started their education in 2008. The results from the questionnaire conducted in 2008 were compared with the results conducted in this study. Moreover, the responses were processed in SPSS 19.0 and then analyzed by Bourdieu's three concepts habitus, capital and field.

    Results: The results of the study showed that those students who began the Physical Education Teacher Program at GIH in 2008 and in 2011 were individuals with great interest in sport. There were more students in 2011 who grew up in Stockholm and there were also more students with a foreign background. It was also noted that it has been significantly easier to become accepted to the Physical Education Teacher Program at GIH in 2011 than in 2008. A lower amount of students had experience of competition and leadership in sport in 2011. We could also see that the spread of knowledge and skills related to Physical Education was greater among the students accepted in 2011 than in 2008. Why the students applied to GIH were because it is situated in Stockholm and because of the good reputation the school has. However we could see that this good reputation is not that strong reason for the students in 2011. The majority of the students in both 2008 and 2011 considered that their pupils’ knowledge and skills should be assessed.

     

    Conclusions: A firm conclusion could not be drawn regarding how the increased number of students who gets accepted to the Physical Education Teacher Program at GIH affects the type of students who apply to the program. The tendency found was that in 2008 the student groups were more homogeneous. In both groups there was deficient knowledge in central parts in Physical Education. Therefore it will be higher requirements on the education to make sure that the knowledge reaches an acceptable ground level in the end of the education.

    Samundervisning eller könssegregerad undervisning i ämnet idrott och hälsa?: En kvalitativ undersökning angående idrottslärares val av undervisningsform i ämnet idrott och hälsa.2011Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte och frågeställningar

    Syftet med detta examensarbete var att undersöka om det fanns någon skillnad i valet av undervisningsform mellan kommunala, invandrartäta högstadieskolor och kommunala, invandrarglesa högstadieskolor i Stockholm. Frågeställningar som söktes svar på var om kön, ålder, utbildning och tidigare arbetserfarenheter påverkar huruvida lärare väljer att använda samundervisning eller könssegregerad undervisning.

    Metod

    Bakgrunden till uppsatsen är en litteraturstudie där sam- och könssegregerad undervisning diskuteras. Den teoretiska utgångspunkten för denna uppsats är ur ett kulturellt- och könsperspektiv. I den litteratur som vi har tagit del av har vi valt att fokusera på att hitta svar på frågeställningarna för att sedan kunna jämföra dessa med vår egen studie.

    Studien har gjorts med kvalitativa intervjuer av 16 stycken idrottslärare på kommunala högstadieskolor. En kvinnlig och en manlig lärare från fyra invandrartäta skolor, respektive fyra invandrarglesa skolor har deltagit i undersökningen. Intervjuerna har haft en låg standardisering och strukturering, detta för att få ut så mycket information som möjligt från intervjuobjekten.

    Resultat och slutsats

    Resultaten som framkommer i studien är att många av idrottslärarna på de invandrartäta skolorna är styrda av aktiviteten, där simundervisning är den mest framträdande. Att hitta tydliga skillnader i om kön och utbildning påverkar valet av undervisning är svårare. Däremot ser vi tecken på att äldre lärare i högre utsträckning använder sig av könssegregerad undervisning.

    Motorik i skolan: idrottslärares syn på motorisk träning för barn i åldrarna 9-12 år2005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aim

    The aim of this study has been to investigate to which extent planned motor training in physical education exists in classes for children in the age of 9-12. We were also aiming at finding out how planned motor training in physical education is valued by teachers in physical education and if they think they are qualified to teach in motor training. The questions at issue were:

    1. How important is motor training in physical education for the teachers when they plan their lessons?

    2. Are there any adjustments made for children with motor deficiencies?

    3. What kind of exercises do the teachers use to promote motor training among the pupils?

    4. What do the teachers consider the difficulties are with planned motor training in physical education?

    5. Do the teachers consider themselves qualified to teach in motor training?

    Method

    The study is a qualitative method in which we used interviews. We have interviewed seven teachers in physical education in Nacka, Värmdö and Stockholm.

    Results

    We have noticed that the teachers, at first, did not mention motor training when they freely answered the question of what they thought were important when they planned their lessons. However, when they later on were answered “motor training” as one of the given alternatives, they ranked it as one of the most important factors. Four out of seven teachers utilized individually adjusted training. Most of the teachers put forward that lack of resources were the explanation why this kind of education was not prioritised. All of the teachers agreed that motor training automatically was a part of almost every lesson. However, most of the teachers did not have motor training in their minds when they planned the lesson. The number one issue that makes it hard for the teachers to help every single pupil is the number of pupils in each class. Although the teachers thought that their own education had some deficiencies concerning motor training, the majority felt that they were qualified for the task.

    Conclusion

    Overall the teachers thought that physical activity was one of the most important issues. Motor training was also a part of almost every lesson. However, most of the teachers when asked didn´t put it forward, instead they mentioned other areas as more important.

    Vitt friluftsliv: En kvalitativ studie om undervisning i vitt friluftsliv på kommunala gymnasieskolor i Stockholms län2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The purpose of this study is to explore the occurrence of snow/ice-dependent outdoor life in local secondary schools around the Stockholm area. The research questions are:

    Is there any education of snow/ice-dependent outdoor life practiced at secondary schools around the Stockholm area? How is the education of snow/ice-dependent outdoor life practiced? Are there any factors that can affect the design of the education of snow/ice-dependent outdoor life?

    Method: The study's data collection was done by interviews. The sample consisted of eight physical education teachers at secondary schools around Stockholm. To get a spread of samples across the entire Stockholm area, Stockholm was divided into three zones: the northern side, the inner city and the southern side. Based on these zones, all local secondary schools were listed and a random sample was drawn. Three interviews each occurred on the northern and the southern side and two interviews took place in the inner city. The first physical education teacher in the staff list at the selected school was contacted, the next teacher in the list was to be contacted if no response and if no response at all, a new school was to be contacted. The results have been analyzed based on the frame-factor theory.

    Results: Five of the eight schools practices some form of education in snow/ice-dependent outdoor life. How the education is exercised differs between schools. Some teaches safety, cross country skiing and skating in class, other schools use outdoor days to teach this and some schools do longer skiing trips. There have also been a number of factors that influence the design of education. Examples of these factors are access to equipment, finances, time, student’s attitudes, underlying organization etc.

    Conclusions: What has been shown in this study is that the majority of participating schools practices some form of education in snow/ice-dependent outdoor life. How the teaching is done can vary between the different schools. The conclusion of this study is that it is possible to practice education in snow/ice-dependent outdoor life in the Stockholm area but there are a number of factors that affect the design and implementation.

    Upplevelser och lärande i äventyrssport och skola2006Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The physicality of sports and outdoor life offers great opportunities for intensive experiences – participants ”feel” the happening in their bodies. As well as looking upon physical activity mainly as something instrumental, as for example in competitive sports and exercise culture, other aspects can also be central, for instance the pure joy of movement. The existential or expressive side of physical activity is examined in this doctoral thesis.

    In order to study such experiential quality more thoroughly, the author’s attention turns to adventure sports participants, as they appear to have a capacity for becoming highly involved and seeking very intense experiences. Who is involved in adventure sports? Why are they engaged in a sport that demands such great hardships and risk-taking? What do they get out of it? The overall objective of the thesis is to shed light on adventure sports as a practice and to discuss the educational significance of flow and other experiential qualities in adventure sports and in schools.

    The analyses are based on three empirical sub-studies. The first began with a questionnaire that 161 adventure sports participants responded to. This was followed by an interview study of eleven men and three women, all of whom had extensive experience in adventure sports. The categories of sport were evenly divided between climbing, off-piste skiing and hang gliding.

    In the second sub-study a detailed investigation of climbing was carried out. A notable sportification has brought about a very clear and interesting change in parts of this activity. Six traditional/adventure climbers and six sport climbers were interviewed, of which half were men and half women. All the climbers were experienced and very much involved in their sport.

    The aim of the third sub-study was to seek an answer as to whether pupils have experiences in their daily school life that are similar to those of adventure sports participants. An ESM (Experience Sampling Method) investigation was carried out with 60 pupils in compulsory school year nine (corresponding to UK schools’ year eleven) from four different schools. The pupils’ parents answered a special parent questionnaire including questions about academic and professional backgrounds, living conditions, habits, interests, attitudes and leisure time activities.

    The results were analysed taking into consideration the phenomenological perspective and structuralistic or more correctly expressed the cultural sociological perspective. Mihály Csikszentmihályi’s theoretical argument on optimal experiences, which in turn is based on the flow concept, constitutes the phenomenological foundation. Pierre Bourdieu’s concept apparatus and theories were used to closely examine the participants’ backgrounds, life histories and current living situations.

    The study shows that a preference for adventure sports is clearly linked to the participants’ backgrounds and earlier life experiences. A behavioural pattern is incorporated and developed into an embodied capacity to master a practice, a result of a long learning process. Participants were clearly concordant in these respects. Participants emphasise the abundant opportunities for intensive experiences that arise from adventure sports. It is a matter of something multidimentional: the active body, outdoor life in natural surroundings, exacting and clear goals, total focus, and about exercising control. This approach presents a model for identification of content qualities, which together create the dynamics that form the meaningful rewards that result from participation in adventure sports. The dimensions include flow experiences, but also go beyond them.

    The deep sense of presence, the physical involvement, the fact that they can choose the path and increase the degree of difficulty themselves – and simultaneously counter this new challenge with increased capacity so that they are engaged at the ”right level” – also provide favourable conditions for a stimulating and successful learning experience.

    The observation was made that it was primarily in the practical and aesthetic subjects that school pupils had the same deep feeling of presence together with a meaningful and pleasurable holistic experience as the adventure sports participants had. Here they were actively involved with their hands or with their whole bodies, and they could make their own choices and be in control of the activity, which for most pupils led to a strong feeling of satisfaction.

    ”De som kan simma ska få fördjupning”  : en studie om utvalda skolors simundervisning  2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    Aim: The purpose of this study was to describe and compare education in swimming in grade six in two different schools. Another purpose was to investigate students’ perception of their swimming skills and their attitudes to education in swimming. The more précised questions were: (1) How is the education in swimming organized in each school? (2) How do the teachers control that the students reach the goals to attain in swimming in the 5: th grade? (3) How do the students judge their own swimming knowledge? And (4) What attitudes towards the education in swimming do the students have?

    Method: A quantitative method, a questionnaire, was used to answer the purpose and questions of the study. 88 students in grade six in two selected schools participated in the survey. The questionnaire consisted of both open and closed questions. The schools were selected through a purposeful sample. All four physical education teachers at the selected schools were interviewed. A curriculum-theoretical framework has been used to deepen the understanding of the study’s results.

    Results: All four physical education teachers believe that it is important to be able to swim. However the education in swimming is organized very differently in the two schools. One of the schools has swimming lessons 12 weeks per year, once a week (grade 1-6). The other school only offers classes in swimming in the second grade: one semester, in grade 3-6 the school let students show their skills once per school year. The students at both schools are satisfied with the swimming lessons however; they have suggestions of how to improve it. 50% of the students learned to swim in the swimming school outside of school, and could therefore swim before they started school. 13% of the students claim that they are not able to swim 200 meters. The teachers however indicated that all students reach the goals. All four physical education teachers think it is important to be able to swim but that it is the parent’s responsibility

    Conclusion: Swimming education differs a lot in the two schools, despite the fact that all four physical education teachers consider it important. The teachers’ focused on the formulation stage and the achievement of the objectives of the curriculum, rather than problematizing the transformation and realization of objectives. Students are aware of their swimming ability and limitations of this. They also want to learn more in the context swimming education.

    Är lärare i idrott och hälsa rätt rustade för IUP?: en kvalitativ studie om individuella utvecklingsplaner2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte och frågeställningar

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka om lärarna i idrott och hälsa känner behov av fortbildning för att lyckas bättre i arbetet med hur de individuella utvecklingsplanerna ska formuleras i dagens skola. För att uppfylla syftet kommer följande frågeställningar att vara i fokus:

    - Hur lyckas lärarna i idrott och hälsa med arbetet med de individuella utvecklingsplanerna?

    - Vilka fördelar lyfter lärarna i idrott och hälsa fram då det gäller arbetet med IUP?

    - Vari ligger svårigheterna i arbetet med IUP för lärarna i idrott och hälsa?

    Metod

    Denna studie är en kvalitativ intervjustudie av fyra lärare i idrott och hälsa. Målgruppen var lärare i idrott och hälsa som arbetar i år 1-6. De valdes för att flera av dem kanske inte har någon tidigare erfarenhet av bedömningar (betyg) mm, då det i år 1-6 inte finns betyg. Urvalsgruppen gjordes av bekvämlighetsskäl, jag har tagit kontakt med ett antal kollegor och frågat om de kunde tänka sig att bli intervjuade angående IUP.

    Resultat

    Resultatet på studien visar att de intervjuade lärarna i idrott och hälsa upplever tiden som det som saknas mest för att lyckas bättre med IUP.

    Det finns många fördelar med IUP och lärarna i studien lyfte fram att de ger en tydlig bild till elev och föräldrar. Även det att föräldrar och elever blir mer delaktiga i skolarbetet, är positivt. IUP är även till fördel vid lärarbyten.

    De svårigheter som lärarna i studien tar upp är bristen av ett gemensamt språk, svårigheter i hur de ska formulera sig när de skriver IUP . Tid för pedagogiska diskussioner mellan lärare, är en annan bit som efterlyses av lärarna.

    Slutsats

    Det är tydligt att lärare i idrott och hälsa upplever ett behov av fortbildning, för att lyckas bättre med hur de ska formulera sig i de IUP. Fortbildningen kan vara i form av pedagogiska diskussioner, men det är viktigt att tid ges till detta.

    Varför krypa när man kan gå?: - en studie om motorik i ämnet idrott och hälsa2012Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Motoriken präglar ämnet idrott och hälsas alla vrår. Från skeppsbrott till dans, allt präglas av motorik. Min studie har som syfte att undersöka hur den motoriska träningen ser ut i skolan och hur metoder används genom två frågeställningar; vad använder sig lärare i idrott och hälsa av för innehåll vid träning i att utveckla elevers motorik och hur förklarar lärare i idrott och hälsa syftet med innehållet.

    Två metoder användes vid datainsamlingen; observationer och intervjuer. Observationerna gjordes med årskurs 2, årskurs 5 och årskurs 6 vid fyra tillfällen per årskurs. Intervjuerna gjordes på årskursernas lärare efter varje avslutad lektion eller dag med frågor som berörde de just observerade lektionerna. Detta skedde under totalt tio dagar.

    De resultat som jag genom observationer kom fram till i min studie var att praktiken lek och rekreation är den mest frekventa innehållet när motorik tränas följt av färdighetsinlärning och tävling och rangordning. Intervjuernas resulterade i svar där lärarens syfte återspeglade innehållet som iakttogs under observationerna, det vill säga att lek och rekreation framhålls som en stor del vid motorisk träning. 

    Slutsatsen är att den motoriska träningen i skolan präglades av praktiken lek och rekreation när denna studie genomfördes.

    Formativ bedömning i ämnet idrott och hälsa: hur påverkar den formativa bedömningen grundskoleelevers prestation i idrott och hälsa?2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Inledning: Formativ bedömning beskrivs av Skolverket som att den kännetecknas av att målet för undervisningen tydliggörs, att man söker information om var eleven befinner sig i förhållande till målet och att återkoppling sedan ges som beskriver hur eleven ska komma vidare mot målet (Skolverket, 2010). Det betyder till skillnad från summativ bedömning, där syftet är att ta reda på vad eleven redan lärt sig, och den formativa bedömningen ska vara framåtsträvande och hjälpa eleven att nå så långt som möjligt och hela tiden utvecklas. Formativ bedömning är enligt Skolverket en bedömning som används för att stödja elevens lärande och utveckla lärarens undervisning. Arbetet har använt sig utav ett sociokulturellt perspektiv som utgångspunkt och i analysen av materialet relateras det även till detta perspektiv.

     

    Cooper test är ett test som går ut på att springa så långt som möjligt på tolv minuter (aktivtraning.se/coopertest). Med hjälp av tabeller kan eleverna jämföra sig själva med genomsnittet då det finns olika nivåer beroende på hur tränad man är.

     

    Studiens syfte: Syftet med den här studien är att undersöka om formativ bedömning visar sig i elevernas resultat vid mätning av konditionstest. Följande två forskningsfrågor är i fokus; gör formativ bedömning att resultatet i Coopertestet förbättras? och hur ser lärare och elever på formativ bedömning?

     

    Metod: Undersökningen som gjorts är både kvalitativ och kvantitativ, genom att både använda två tester och jämföra dessa med varandra, samt att intervjua både elever och lärare.

     

    Resultat: Våra resultat från Coopertestet visar att eleverna som fick formativ bedömning fick bättre resultat vid det andra testtillfället. Vidare visar intervjuerna med både lärare och elever att formativ bedömning är positivt. Vissa elever tyckte dock att det kunde bli lite för mycket information att ta till sig, och det kunde bli lite rörigt, men i övrigt var både lärare och elever alltså positiva till denna bedömningsform i kombination med summativ bedömning.

    Friluftsliv: a contribution to equity and democracy in Swedish PE? : An analysis of codes in Swedish PE curricula2011In: Journal of Curriculum Studies, ISSN 0022-0272, E-ISSN 1366-5839, Vol. 43, no 2, p. 269-288Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the last decade, expanding research investigating school subject Physical Education (PE), indicates a promotion of inequalities regarding which children benefit from PE teaching. Outdoor education and its Scandinavian equivalent friluftsliv, is a part of the PE curriculum in many countries and these practices have been claimed to have the potential to contribute to more equity in PE teaching. Through an investigation of how stipulations regarding friluftsliv in the national Swedish PE curriculum are transformed and interpreted into 31 local PE syllabus documents, this paper investigates the possibilities for friluftsliv to fulfil this potential. In an analysis inspired by educational sociologist Basil Bernstein, I claim that Swedish PE teachers’ marginalised interpretation of friluftsliv indicates its weak classification when a part of PE. When friluftsliv is addressed in PE, the strong dominance of a performance code transforms it into mere sport activities. The results of this study highlight questions regarding PE teachers’ interpretation of learning aims and their work with text documents. It also discusses alternatives to implementing friluftsliv through PE and the role of teachers in curriculum reforms.

    Friluftsliv in Swedish Physical Education – a Struggle of Values: Educational and Sociological Perspectives2010Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to examine some of the educational and sociological conditions underlying the production of teaching in friluftsliv within the Physical Education (PE) subject in Swedish compulsory school. Despite the value awarded to the Scandinavian outdoor practice friluftsliv, in both the national PE curriculum document and in Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) in Sweden, it does not seem to be thoroughly implemented in compulsory school teaching. Through analyses of interviews with PE teachers and PE teacher educators, as well as of curriculum documents, using the perspectives of Basil Bernstein and Pierre Bourdieu, I explore conditions underlying the expressions of friluftsliv teaching in Swedish PE.

    The pedagogic discourse for friluftsliv in Swedish PE is described as a teaching that should take place in a natural setting remote from civilisation, involve risks, and require time, technical equipment, financial resources, and cooperation. This discourse for friluftsliv is shown to be similar to the values emphasised in friluftsliv education in PETE. Although proven to be difficult to implement in school, this discourse appear to form the conception of friluftsliv teaching for PE teachers in Sweden. Under the influence of the performance code, friluftsliv is transformed into outdoor activities with which the PE teachers are familiar, or is totally left out of PE teaching.

    A turn towards options that are seen as unthinkable in relation to the current pedagogic discourse may benefit the achievement of the aims set out in the national PE curriculum. Values such as environmental awareness, sustainable development and cultural perspectives on the landscape could strengthen the classification of friluftsliv and PE in compulsory school. Further, an increase of socially critical and constructivist perspectives during PETE could make unthinkable options in friluftsliv thinkable and contribute to a break with the reproduction of teaching practices in PE.

    “Instantaneous or continuous examination”– exploring dilemmas about when to examine movement in Swedish PETE.2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It has been claimed that issues of assessment in school and education is of particular interest in contemporary society with many conflicting demands, theories and practices (McDowell 2010). In the field of Physical Education (PE), assessment issues, grading and examination practices has received attention on the school level during the last decade (MacPhail & Halbert 2010, Penney 2009, Lopez-Pastor et.al 2013, Redelius & Hay 2009). However, on the level of PE teacher education (PETE), the knowledge base of these issues is not as significant. Based on the relative reduction of movement practices in PETE following the academisation of teacher education in general (Kirk 2010), there are reasons to investigate the what- and the how-question regarding examination in movement practices in PETE.

     

    The aim with this paper is to analyse and discuss what is assigned value in the formulation of tasks for examination of movement in subject courses on seven Swedish PETE departments. Inspired by Bourdieu’s concept of symbolic capital (Bourdieu & Wacquant 1992) and its use in PE research (Backman 2008, Brown 2005, Redelius et.al. 2009), a preliminary analysis of formulations in curricula documents has showed that the examination of movement practices is a silent, constant and ongoing process, rather than out-spoken and performed at specific occasions during a course. The analysis has also shown that the ability to perform movements is, within examination tasks, formulated separate from the ability to teach, rather than integrated with one another. Illuminating these issues, not only on the level of school PE but also on the PETE level, might develop and strengthen assessment practices not only in PE but also in PETE.

    To acquire a taste for friluftsliv - a part of becoming a PE teacher?: Swedish Physical Education teacher educators' thoughts about their students' preferences for friluftsliv2009In: Moving Bodies, ISSN 1503-6065, Vol. 7, p. 9-26Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Teacher students’ own biographies and early experiences of teaching have proven to have a major significance for their future teaching, compared to perspectives and content in teacher education. This is also the case for Physical Education (PE) teacher students, whose preferences for physical activity are often constituted by their experiences of sport. Based on the values assigned to friluftsliv (or its anglicised equivalents, “outdoor recreation” or “outdoor education”) in Swedish Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE), the disparity between the taste of Swedish PE teacher educators’ and that of their students’ for friluftsliv is analysed. The lack of teaching in friluftsliv in Swedish schools seems to be an example of that PE teaching is mainly based on PE teachers’ taste for physical practices, rather than on the PE curriculum. In this article the potential to change this condition by developing the teaching in friluftsliv at Swedish PETE is discussed.

    What can socially critical perspectives offer to PESP and PETE? Examples from a sport-university in Stockholm, Sweden2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This seminar takes its departure in PETE-programmes and PESP-research at The Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences in Stockholm, Sweden. After a brief description of the activity at this university with regards to history, culture, structure, content and extent, the main focus of the seminar will be devoted to a discussion of the challenges following partly from acting within a multidisciplinary academic (sport) context and partly from insights after comparing Swedish PETE-programmes and PESP-research to its similarities in other countries. Issues with regards to equity, equality and power, and the educational impact of these perspectives, will be acknowledged during this seminar.

    What frames teaching of friluftsliv?: Analysing a pedagogic discourse within Swedish PE through framing and the pedagogic device2011In: Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, ISSN 1472-9679, E-ISSN 1754-0402Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research indicates that outdoor teaching practices within a Physical Education (PE) context are framed by several factors with the potential to weaken or strengthen PE teachers’ control of pedagogic messages. Drawing on 12 qualitative interviews with PE teachers in compulsory schools in Sweden, the findings in this study suggest that factors claimed to control teachers’ pedagogic communication of friluftsliv (Scandinavian equivalent to outdoor education) is based on the construction of a dominating pedagogic discourse for outdoor teaching in Swedish schools. Analysing the constitution of this discourse through Bernstein’s theoretical concepts of framing and the pedagogic device, Swedish PE teachers and PE teacher education appear to reproduce friluftsliv as a teaching practice carried out in a remote wilderness setting involving specific equipment, financial resources and a certain amount of risk. In relation to these results, alternative ways to think of outdoor teaching in relation to the achievement of the national aims in Swedish PE are discussed.

    What is valued in friluftsliv within PE teacher education?: Swedish PE teacher educators' thoughts about friluftsliv analysed through the perspective of Pierre Bourdieu2008In: Sport, Education and Society, ISSN 1357-3322, E-ISSN 1470-1243, Vol. 13, p. 61-76Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The value assigned to friluftsliv (activities similar to outdoor education) in Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) and in the PE syllabus in Sweden does not seem to result in the implementation of friluftsliv in the practice of teaching in Swedish schools. This study investigates how the identified values of friluftsliv, expressed in interviews with 17 PE teacher educators in Sweden, reflect struggles for legitimate and privileged knowledge in PETE. The exploration of friluftsliv within PETE reveals positions that appear to be an effect of the dominating logic of sport within Swedish PETE and the limited influence of the academic field. The educational consequences of the identified values are analysed and discussed from a socio-cultural perspective.

    What is valued when moving in (Swedish) PETE? PE teacher educators’ views of the meaning of movement skills for future PE teachers2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It has been claimed that issues of assessment in school and higher education is of particularinterest in contemporary society with many conflicting demands, theories andpractices. In the field of Physical Education (PE), assessment issues, gradingand examination practices has received attention on the school level during thelast decade. However, on the level of PE teacher education (PETE), theknowledge base of these issues is not as significant. Based on the relativereduction of movement practices in PETE following the academisation of teachereducation in general, there are reasons to investigate the what- and thehow-questions regarding examination in movement practices in PETE. In thisstudy, expressions of examination regarding movements in PETE departments in Swedenand in Australia have been investigated and compared. Building on analysis ofsyllabi documents from PETE departments in Sweden and Australia, and oninterviews with PE teacher educators from these departments, the specific aimof the study is to analyse and discuss what is assigned value in theexamination of movements on a sample of PETE departments in Sweden andAustralia. Inspired by the sociological and educational theories of PierreBourdieu and Basil Bernstein, and particularly the concepts of social field andsymbolic capital (Bourdieu) as well as classification, performance code andcompetence code (Bernstein), the preliminary analysis  of the investigated syllabi documents hasshowed that there is a tension regarding whenthe examination of movements is taking place. There are expressions of instantaneousexamination, i.e. examinations that take place at one or a few occasions withspecific and outspoken tasks, as well as of continuous examination, i.e.examination as a silent, constant and ongoing process often combined withdemands of participation. The preliminary analysis of the interviews with thePE teacher educators has revealed a tension between viewing the importance ofmovement as subject matter knowledge, i.e. as an ability to perform movements,or as didactic knowledge, i.e. as a means for the ability to teach. Thesetensions will be further analysed with regards to similarities and differencesbetween PETE departments in Sweden and Australia. Illuminating these issues mightdevelop and strengthen examination practices not only in PETE but also in PE.

    Abstract [en]

    Baksidestext:

    An increased globalization and growth of cities also highlights the boundaries between nature and civilization from educational and experiential perspectives, especially with regards to issues of democracy and inclusion. From this perspective, much of modern outdoor education can be understood as 'urban' wherever the people come from or wherever the activity takes place. This book, building upon papers presented on the EOE Seminar 2013, takes its departure within how our notions of nature are related to the urbanization of people.

    I takt med tiden?: perspektiv på idrottslärarutbildning i Skandinavien2013Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Idag finns relativt mycket kunskap om skolämnet idrott och hälsa, eller ’kroppsøvning’ och ’idræt’ som det heter i Norge respektive Danmark. Dock vet vi inte lika mycket om den utbildning som ska förbereda de lärare som ska undervisa i idrott och hälsa i skolan. I den här boken ställs befintlig kunskap om idrottslärarutbildningen i relation till pågående förändringsprocesser i skola, utbildning och samhälle. Hur påverkas idrottslärarutbildning av problem och utmaningar inom skolämnet idrott och hälsa? Hur förbereds studenter för uppgiften att forma unga människors förhållande till hälsa och kroppsrörelse? Vilka olika framtidsscenarior är möjliga för idrottslärarutbildning? Det är några av de övergripande frågor som behandlas i den här boken.

    I boken ger författarna en samlad bild av den skandinaviska forskningen om idrottslärarutbildning. Utbildningen beskrivs och diskuteras utifrån historiska, utbildningspolitiska och professionsrelaterade perspektiv. Boken vänder sig till studenter och doktorander inom idrottslärarutbildning samt till utbildare inom nämnda utbildning, såväl de som jobbar inom högskola som inom grund- och gymnasieskolan. Vidare är boken angelägen för personer inom myndigheter och organisationer som fattar beslut som rör idrottslärarutbildning.

    Assessment of movement in Swedish PETE: A matter of learning or just ticking a box?2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The general knowledge base of Health and Physical Education Teacher Education (HPETE) is growing stronger. As a part of that knowledge base there is an ongoing discussion of the meaning of HPETE students’ movement capabilities (Brown 2013, Capel et al 2011, Johnson 2013, Siedentop 2009, Tinning 2010). Lee Shulman’s (1987) framework of Content Knowledge (CK) and Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) have been used by scholars to examine how students’ ability to move and their ability to teach are valued in HPETE (Backman & Pearson 2016, Herold & Waring 2016, Ward et al 2015). However, the students’ own voices about these issues have rarely been acknowledged. The aim with this paper is therefore to examine how HPETE students at one university in Sweden experience the assessment of movement knowledge in and about aquatics, dance and ice-skating. Semi-structured interviews with two groups including a total of seven students were performed by the one researcher at three different occasions. The interviewing researcher’s regularly work is not at the same university as the participating students. The interviews focused specifically on the teaching and assessment of aquatics, dance and skating within the first semester of HPETE. The transcription of the six interviews was performed by external assistance and the students were all anonymized in the transcribed material. The following analysis, performed by two researchers stationed at the same university as the participating students, focused on how the transcribed material related to the aim and the concepts of Shulman. Preliminary results show several expressions of that the students in our study were not sure of what kinds or what level of movement knowledge were expected of them as they entered HPETE. Further, several students expressed limited possibilities to develop movement ability merely through HPETE teaching but at the same time, practicing unfamiliar movements outside HPETE teacher-led teaching was rare. Although assessment of movement knowledge were most commonly expressed as a qualitative process, some students mentioned that they occasionally experienced assessment of movement knowledge as “a-tick-in-a-box”. Interestingly, the cognitive aspects of movement knowledge (i.e. describe, observe, analyse, discuss, etc.) were on the one hand expressed as vital, but on the other as less characterized by learning compared to the practice of movement skills. The results will be analysed and discussed in relation to research within the field and in relation to Lee Shulman’s framework of CK and PCK. Although making no claims to generalize the results in this study based on the limited number of participants, they might contribute to the discussion of what forms of knowledge to prioritise in HPETE, and thereby also help develop HPE on a school level.

    Abstract [en]

    The question of what knowledge a student of Physical Education (PE) needs to develop during PE teacher education (PETE) was recently discussed. One form of knowledge is the movement practices that students must meet during their education. Given the limited time, a delicate matter is whether to prioritize movement knowledge and consider it as subject matter knowledge (e.g. performance of the freestyle stroke) or as pedagogical content knowledge (e.g. teaching how to perform the freestyle stroke). The aim is to investigate Swedish PE teacher educators’ views on the meaning of movement skills for future PE teachers and to analyse the learning cultures made visible in the ways the meaning of movement is expressed. We conducted interviews with 12 teachereducators and collected documents with tasks for assessment from five PETE universities in Sweden. Inspired by Bourdieu’s field metaphor, and particularly its use by Hodkinson et al. on learning cultures, we then analysed the collected material. In the results, different views on the meaning of movement skills are made visible. The PE teacher can be seen as an instructor, as well as a facilitator of movements. Movement skills can be seen as essential for a teacher in PE, as well as valuable but not essential. Movement quality can also be viewed as universal, as well as contextual. Swedish teacher educators in PE appear to ascribe value to all the positions made visible in this study. These results are discussed from the perspectives of epistemology, assessment and learning cultures.

    Abstract [sv]

    Inom idrottslärarutbildning har det utbildningsinnehåll som handlar om att utveckla studenters ämneskunskaper i idrott kraftigt reducerats under de senaste decennierna. Inte minst har den delav ämneskunskapen som handlar om studenters förmåga att delta i och undervisa om idrottsliga praktiker drabbats (Kirk 2010). När utrymmet för ett ämnesområde begränsas aktualiseras frågor om innehåll och bedömning. Alltmedan de flesta inom fältet är eniga om betydelsen för studenter att få erfarenheter av rörelse och idrott under sin utbildning finns olika uppfattningar om huruvida man ska bedöma studenters förmåga att praktiskt utöva idrott. Hur man förhåller sig denna fråga har i hög grad visat sig vara kulturellt betingat (Backman & Pearson submitted, Herold & Waring 2009, Siedentop 2009, Tinning 2010). I svensk idrottslärarutbildning har just den idrottsliga bedömningens vara eller inte vara visat på en komplexitet och ambivalens (Backman & Pearson 2016).I en tid av alltmer begränsade resurser har problematiken delvis handlat om huruvida man ska bedöma (och därigenom värdera) studentens förmåga att delta i idrott som ett mål i sig eller om man ska bedöma studentens förmåga att undervisa i och om idrott (Backman & Larsson 2016, Maivorsdotter et al 2014). I de studier som belyst den idrottsliga färdighetens position ochbetydelse inom idrottslärarutbildning har studenters röst varit sparsamt förekommande. I denna studie vill vi därför, genom en implementering av en internationellt etablerad modell för studentmedbedömning i bollspel (Games Performance Assessment Instrument, GPAI) (Oslin et al 1998) i kurser för blivande idrottslärare, ge röst åt studenters syn på studentbedömning av förmågan att spela bollspel. I studien har 140 studenter (N=140) på lärarprogrammet vid Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan i Stockholm deltagit. Studien är genomförd inom ramen för en ordinarie bollspelskurs om 3 hp som motsvarar 18 lektionstillfällen med 90 minuters undervisning vid varje tillfälle. Till detta lades två extra lektioner om 90 min för att genomföra studien/datainsamlingen. Studenterna har under och efter kursen bidragit till datainsamlingen i kursen genom ifyllande av etablerade bedömningsformulär där de analyserat varandras spelförmåga. Vidare har studenterna svarat på en utvärdering av hur GPAI implementerats i kursen med hjälp av ett enkätverktyg. Syftet med kursen som studenterna deltagit i är att studenterna ska utveckla sin spelförmåga, leda målspel i skolan samt didaktiska aspekter på målspel i skolan. Studien har omfattat studentmedbedömning i spelen handboll, basket och fotboll som inte enbart ska ses som en utbildning i dessa spel utan som representation för bollspel i allmänhet. Deltagarna i studien representerar alla studenter som hösten 2016 läste den beskrivna kursen. Alla studenter fick information om att deltagandet var frivilligt och att de kunde avbryta när som helst utan att det skulle på verka deras betyg eller vara negativt för dem på något annat sätt. Alla studenter ville vara med i studien. I vår preliminära analys har vi funnit att studenternas observationer av varandra visade på stor variation avseende spelförmåga. I utvärderingen av GPAI-projektet har studenterna uttryckt att de visserligen förstod syftet med GPAI-projektet, och att de förstod hur de skulle bidra till datainsamlingen genom att analysera varandras spelförmåga, men att de var tveksamma till relevansen av GPAI i en bedömningskontext i skolan. Resultaten kommer att analyseras vidare och diskuteras i relation till Shulmans begrepp ämneskunskap (Content Knowledge) och ämnesdidaktisk kunskap (Pedagogical Content Knowledge) samt i relation till teorier om bedömning. I en diskussion där perspektiven ofta begränsas till forskarens och/eller idrottslärarutbildarens kan studenter bidra med viktig kunskap om vad de ser som relevant kunskap för sin kommande yrkesroll.
