A Narrative of an Action Research Study in Preschool: Choice Points and Their Implications for Professional and Organisational Development
Gillberg, Claudia
Educational Action Research, v19 n2 p137-152 2011
Against the background of Swedish preschool's historical and traditional functions in Swedish society, this article focuses on some of the choice points and their implications for professional and organisational development in preschool. By combining feminist pragmatism and feminist action research, some analytical points are made regarding the significance of organisational settings and the limitations they can have on the professional practices within the organisational setting. The preschool teachers in this study show that pedagogical change is possible, although it takes time and is not necessarily endorsed by municipal employers. The role of action researchers is described in terms of positions and ethics. The latter is presented as particularly important. (Contains 1 table.)
