What Is to Be Learned? Teachers' Collective Inquiry into the Object of Learning

Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v60 n3 p309-322 2016
Within the phenomenographic research tradition, the "object of learning" depicts the capability that is to be learned by the learner. It has been argued that the object of learning cannot be fully known in advance since what is to be learned depends on the learners as well as on the content taught. The object of learning and its nature needs to be explored. In this paper, we analyze how a group of teachers collaboratively investigated an object of learning when they planned, enacted, analysed, and revised a mathematical task. We describe distinctions made by the group in the inquiry into teaching and learning, and how delimitations and distinctions made transformed the teaching and meaning of the object of learning.
