The Everyday practice in after-school care
2013 (English)In: The 41st Annual Congress of the Nordic Educational Research Association. Disruptions and eruptions as opportunities for transforming education, 7 – 9 March 2013 in Reykjavik, 2013Conference paper (Other academic)
The aim is to present a research project on after-school care that will be initiated during the spring 2013. As the project is initiated as an ethnographic action research, the main research issues, as well as the action, are defined by the teachers during the first phase of the research, in co-production with the researchers, inventing visions, restraints, possibilities and a plan of action. We are also planning to conduct ethnographic observations at the units and qualitative interviews with teachers, and even children. The design is though necessarily quite flexible at this point of time as it depends on the action and the issues that then may be identified as important for closer study. Depending on the financial resources of the project, the research will be conducted during about 3 years on either 3 or 6 after-care units. The presentation will focus upon the initial phase of the project and point out the research questions which are formulated in co-production with teachers who work in the after-school care. These questions can also be seen as important questions to investigate further in the area.
