    Innovative Pedagogical Methods in Higher Education2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this paper is to critically reflect about the results from a pilot study, in which Facebook was used as a co-learning community. A communicative tool or arena for discussing educational matters in order to facilitate for students with diverse backgrounds to reach better understanding on academic culture and knowledge production. In the pilot study we worked with a “consciousness-raising” pedagogy for encouraging and supporting students to cooperate with each other, and by the use of Facebook as a platform. The development of these pedagogical view and method can be seen as providing equal opportunities, by generating better results in higher education studies. The project is supposed to contribute to knowledge concerning more profound issues associated to ideas of democracy and empowerment connected to change and development in academic cultures. The central questions to be answered are: What means by “co-learning community” by Facebook? How does this tool stimulate students to be more confident and as a consequence, reach a better understanding about the ways into “break down” obstacles, in terms of academic cultural codes? How does it is expressed by the students in terms of benefit?

    Using Facebook as a Co-learning Community in Higher Education2016In: Learning, Media & Technology, ISSN 1743-9884, E-ISSN 1743-9892, Vol. 41, no 1, p. 55-72Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Students’ cultural capital plays a major role in their success in higher education. In Sweden today, many students come from diverse cultural, social and educational backgrounds. Knowledge of requirements in academic systems differs widely. Some students feel insecure about how to interpret academic codes, thus weakening these students’ opportunities for academic success. The major goal of this project was to lay the groundwork for a more equal educational system. Using social media, in this case conversations (e.g., chats) in a closed forum on Facebook monitored by a tutor, we aimed to improve student integration into academic culture. We differentiated two central themes related to student conversations on Facebook: (1) Access to academic habituscracking codes and (2) Emancipation by co-learning – extended academic codes. It was found that students participating in study groups created on Facebook learnt to better crack and extend the codes extant in university studies. © 2015 Taylor & Francis

    How Gender Conscious Pedagogy in Higher Education Can Stimulate Actions of Social Justice in Society2014In: Journal of Social Inclusion, ISSN 1836-8808, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 12-23Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to show examples from a study, and reflect on, how teaching with a gender perspective (gender conscious pedagogy) in higher education can support students to be confident about gender matters and as a consequence of this, become gender actors outside the university and in private and working life.

    Ensam tillsammans: senmodernitet, gemenskap, individualisering2005Collection (editor) (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Ensam tillsammans : Individuell självständighet och gemenskap med andra, frihet och trygghet, kylig kalkyl och kärleksfull omtanke. Utesluter polerna i dessa begreppspar varandra eller går de att förena?

    Sociologi är vetenskapen om hur vi människor "hänger samman" vilket innebär att sociologen studerar människor i större och mindre grupper och sammanslutningar. Även hur vi "inte hänger samman" eller vad som händer när vi bryter upp från en social gemenskap är en viktig del av sociologens forskningsområde. Frågeställningen löper som en röd tråd genom samhällstänkandet sedan Ferdinand Tönnies formulerade begreppen Gemeinschaft och Gesellschaft i sin klassiska behandling av temat från 1887.

    Tillbaka till framtiden: Familjens betydelse för individens livsval2011Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Synen på familjen och familjelivets former förändras ständigt. Trenden som sedan länge gått mot ökad självständighet och jämlikhet bryts ibland och ett slags nostalgisk längtan efter förment trygghet i svunna tiders föreställda familjegemenskaper inställer sig. Det är inte en pendelrörelse fram och tillbaka över tid utan utvecklingen innebär snarare en rörelse som på samma gång går både fram och tillbaka. Författarna menar att vi idag befinner oss i en tid med en bakåtblickande rörelse och ett sökande efter lösningar på våra problem i det förflutna. Att sådana lösningar riskerar att väcka till liv traditionella över- och underordnings­förhållanden döljs ofta, i såväl människors familjeromantiska drömmar som i det offentliga samtalet. Ett samhällsvetenskapligt perspektiv innebär att betrakta familjen inte bara som något oomtvistat positivt att sträva efter, utan även som en social form av villkorad gemenskap, med fördelar och nackdelar, möjligheter och hinder för medlemmarna. I boken diskuteras vad nyfamilistiska trender i tiden kan innebära för individen, hennes frihet och livsval.

    De första ”Bolognastudenterna” – om aktörskap, yrkesorientering och bildning i programutbildningar: Delrapport från projektet: Före, under och efter utbildningen på Högskolan i Halmstad 2007–20122009Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    I det följande sammanfattar vi de resultat som framstår som mest centrala i studien. Det första vi vill lyfta fram är att studenterna som läser ett grundutbildningsprogram på Högskolan har gjort ett positivt val i den bemärkelsen att de inte har valt högreutbildning för att slippa vara arbetslösa. Studenterna på högskolan värderar både utbildningarnas bildande som yrkesorienterade aspekter som viktiga. I de data som analyserats har vi dock sett att utbildningens betydelse för det kommande yrkeslivet ges allt större betydelse efter hand som de studerar. En annan betydelsefull förändring som skett mellan det första och andra mättillfället är att intresset för ochden upplevda möjligheten att påverka sin egen utbildning sjunker avsevärt. När detgäller studenternas prestationer efter det första studieåret kan vi konstatera att devarierar, och att faktorerna kön och kulturell bakgrund har betydelse. Kvinnor ochstudenter med nordisk bakgrund presterar betydligt bättre än män och studentermed utomnordisk bakgrund. Traditionella sociala bakgrundsfaktorer somföräldrarnas utbildning och yrke visade sig inte han den betydelse för prestationernasom man kan förvänta sig utifrån tidigare studier.

    Gender Division in Sociology Degree Program – Causes and Effects?2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years there has been a tendency for Swedish higher education students to choose to study degree programmes rather than single subject courses. Due to the decreasing number of students taking for example sociology, Halmstad University in Sweden has constructed a degree programme, Sociologi och socialt utvecklingsarbete, with focus on community development and social action, with Sociology as the main specific subject. In the autumn of 2007 ninety-five percent of the 61 students were female, compared to the seventy-five percent of female students in sociology degree courses that Sweden has had in the past seven years. An increased gender division previously related to specific professional fields such as technology/engineering and care/nursing, seems to come into academic disciplines that earlier have not had problems with such a skewed gender representation. I look upon gender division in all its shapes as problematic.

    The paper is based on a lager study on students at Halmstad University in which the students’ motives for taking the sociology programme and their expectations on sociology as well as the programme are investigated. The importance of equal gender representation in sociology is discussed in this paper and its consequences for educational practices in sociology as well as the contents and status of the discipline in the future will be illuminated.

    Gender division in sociology degree programmes - causes and effects?2009In: Journal of Further and Higher Education, ISSN 0309-877X, E-ISSN 0013-1326, Vol. 33, no 4, p. 449-461Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In spite of engagement and efforts to bring about gender equality in Swedish universities, gender division paradoxically appears in both old and new degree programs and academic disciplines. In recent years there has been a tendency for higher education students to enrol in degree programmes rather than in single subject courses. Due to the decreasing number of students taking subjects like sociology, Halmstad University College has constructed a degree programme, Sociologi och socialt utvecklingsarbete [Sociology and social development], focused on community development and social action; sociology is the main specific subject here. In the autumn of 2007, 95% of the 61 students were female, compared to the 75% of female students in sociology degree courses that Sweden has had in the past seven years. The problem of skewed gender representation in sociology is discussed here, and its consequences for educational practices in sociology as well as for the contents and status of the discipline in the future.

    Konsthantverkare, genus och omvänd ekonomi: om hinder och möjligheter att agera på konsthantverkets arena2004Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    This dissertation focuses on the possibilities for artist craftsmen or handicrafters to operate their independent small enterprises under the conditions of late-modern society. It describes and analyses the game in the arena of handicraft production. The powerful influence of gender constructions on this game is considered. The theoretical discussion starts with Bourdieus´ theory about fields of cultural production characterised by reversed economy. It then proceeds towards a synthesis with theory about segregation by gender in working life. My analysis of the transcendence of traditional gendered frames by handicrafters who wish to go beyond conventional expectations employs the concept of desire. A combination of quantitative and qualitative methods is used. Empirical material has been gathered by means of 204 questionnaires submitted to handicrafters and members of co-operatives, and interviews with six well-established female handicrafters. The material indicates that women and men develop partly different strategies in the practice of their crafts. This is evident although women to a larger extent combine their handicraft with employment as designers or teachers while men to a larger extent apply professional help with administrative tasks and more routinised phases of the production process. Men who work in co-operatives also generally achieve a considerably higher turnover than women. In addition to the survey results, the views and experiences of six well-established full-time working women are introduced. Their ways of practising their craft are presented here, and their narratives about advantages and disadvantages are analysed. The women?s individual stories combine into a collective story about their attempts to find new ways of practising their craft, about how to improve the economical situation of their enterprises, etc. Finally, the study emphasises the personal satisfaction that people in the field of handicraft derive from their work. As a matter of fact, it has been described as an ideal kind of work by sociologists and spokesmen of the craft. Craftspeople themselves suggest that their task is so interesting and stimulating that they continue to carry on for many years regardless of persistent economic difficulties.

    Gender consciousness in the classroom generates social justice and democracy outside it2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to reflect about methods that can generate social justice and democratization, this article emphasises on practical implementations, connected to gender pedagogy. Gender pedagogy aims at overcoming the myth of objectivity, and by questioning through teaching what is considered as common sense and ‘normal’. Studying gender in the classroom entails therefore, acting and reflecting on breakthroughs, for example about an understanding of how gender codes influence everyday instances as well as working life. The collected data is based on narratives from alumni students who were asked to memorise and reflect on their gender studies and particularly about how useful this type of knowledge is in connection with everyday and working life - as politician, lecturer, IT-manager, doctoral student etc. The aim of this article is to focus on how teachers support students to be gender confident and as a consequence of that, becoming gender actors outside the university, in working life. Some central questions are: how are gender issues represented and integrated in the different areas of studies; what can teachers do in order to generate equality in the classroom; in what way and how are students given possibilities of understanding, internalizing and discussing gender issues. Our experiences as lectors, especially in gender studies, play a central role.

    Durable and Increasing Gender Segregation in Higher Education: Students´ Motives for Applying to University Degree Programs2010In: XVII ISA World Congress of SociologySociology on the MoveGothenburg, Sweden 11 - 17 July, 2010Conference Abstracts Prepared in Cooperation with CSA Sociological Abstracts, 2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Higher education (HE) has changed from elite to mass education (HSV 2006:26R, Leathwood & Read 2009). In the last few decades, the number of women in higher education has increased substantially in most OECD countries. Sweden’s reform of HE in 1993 encourages university institu- tions to develop new degree programs (SFS 1993:100). This opened opportunities for the development of programs designed to attract women & men in equal numbers but the result was disappointing. According to a Swedish study, an increasing number of new degree programs attract almost exclusively one gender (Witt 2009, Nelson et al 2009). It is a well- established fact that technical educations are male-dominated while care- related educations are predominantly chosen by women. This paper inves- tigates the motivations for choice reported by 620 students in 17 programs. We have categorized these motives as follows: knowledge seeking; work- ing life orientation; shoulder responsibility for society; program design; second choice and “follow the map”. Moreover, the paper discusses how gender-segregated educational choices may affect the future opportunities of student in terms of professional careers, income development and, con- sequently, social standing & life styles. To study gender segregation within HE is like looking at a three dimensional picture. We can focus at different parts or images a one image shows the gender division among the students, another show the genderized division between program choices, while the third image is about the vertical gender division among teachers and researchers & their career opportunities. This paper deals with the first two.
