Det lärande mötet : En studie om lärares didaktiska medvetenhet i undervisningssituationer
The authors were curious and asked themselves if teachers are aware of the base of their teaching in various teaching situations. Are teachers at all capable of expressing that in words? One of the reasons that the authors chose the particular issue was because they think teachers have the task to satisfy the needs of all students and therefore they found it interesting to study how various teachers act. The purpose of the study is to observe teachers didactical awareness, and how it can be added to their intentions and actions, as in how they speak about their teaching and how they act in various teaching situations. Methods used in the study were observations and qualitative interviews. The result was divided into the following three themes: to individualize the teaching, to interact with the student and how the teaching is based on reliable experience. The result showed that the teachers base their teaching mostly on the individual student depending on which student the teachers instruct and that they focus on his or her good qualities, needs and qualifications. The teachers also make deliberate choices when they choose material which they adapt to the individual students. However, the teachers do not seem to reflect as much on their choices and actions and that they apparently not do is to reflect over their choice and acts and that the curriculum is not, remarkably enough, used as a base for their pedagogic work.
