Nilsson, Ingrid
Forum on Public Policy Online, v2008 n2 Sum 2008
The critical aspects distribution of professional leadership, alignment in learning and research close to practices, were lifted forward in order to exemplify a research project with learning study as an approach for alignment between teacher education and practice, and as consequence an instrument for distribution of power. The results showed that alignment of learning in a way seems to be unproblematic according to teaching and learning subject knowledge and professional and research knowledge developed. Nevertheless, problems are occurring in communication between the organizations regarding epistemological and ontological questions and the teaching and learning of subject knowledge seems to be affected. This leads to the conclusion that it is possible with improved reaching of intended learning outcomes, both for teachers and pupils, with strengthened communication.
