Teaching in Motion

Research output: Contribution to conference without publisher/journalPosterResearchpeer-review


Many countries are trying to raise the educational level in the perspective of the knowledge society. The aim of the Danish pedagogical project “Teaching in Motion” is to give young men in their twenties another chance to pass examination of the secondary school so that they can afterwards enter youth education. The research has among other things been focusing on the connection between students´ earlier experiences with school and education and the experience they develop throughout the project. Another research question has dealt with how the project or the institutional learning has contributed to the students´ biographical learning.The conclusions point to that there is a clear connection between the students´ former school experience and their involvement in the project. Students who have positive experience from earlier educational contexts are easier to involve and engage in educational processes. Methodologically, quantitative and qualitative methods have been used. For instance, life-historical interviews have been carried out with selected students, inspired by Horsdal (2012). The theoretical perspectives are inspired by learning theory, hereby life biography theory, for instance Alheit (1995), Altheit & Dausien (2002), transformative learning Mezirow (1978; 1991) and social theory of learning (Wenger,1999).
