    "It's funny that we don't see the similarities when that's what we're aiming for": Visualizing and challenging teachers' stereotypes of gender and science2012In: Research in science education, ISSN 0157-244X, E-ISSN 1573-1898, Vol. 42, no 2, p. 281-302Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study illuminates teachers’ conceptions of gender and science and possibilities to challenge these conceptions. Since 2005, a group of teachers (K-6) inSwedenhave met approximately once a month in two-hour seminars to discuss and develop their instruction in science and technology based on a gender perspective. The present data consist mainly of audio-recordings of the teacher seminars and video-recordings of science/technology activities with students. Analysis of the empirical data has been carried out in several stages and was inspired by thematic analysis, the theoretical framework of which is based on Hirdman’s and Beauvoir’s theories of gender. The results show that the teachers’ ideas about gender/equity and science exist on several levels, within which various conceptions are represented. On the one hand, “reasoning around similarity”, where teachers consider that both girls and boys should have the same prerequisites for working with science/technology. In contrast, stereotyped conceptions of girls and boys when the teachers evaluate their activities with students, where condescending attitudes toward girls are also observed. The girls’ ways of working with science/technology are not as highly valued as the boys’, and this outlook on children can ultimately have consequences for girls’ attitudes toward the subject. When teachers are allowed to read their own statements about the girls, they get “a glimpse of themselves”, and their condescending ideas about girls are made visible. In this way, the teachers can begin their active work toward change, which may lead to new outlooks on and attitudes toward students.

    Lärare för förändring: att synliggöra och utmana föreställningar om naturvetenskap och genus2011Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The main focus in this thesis is teachers’ gender awareness related to scientific practice. The thesis is based on two different empirical studies: a longitudinal action research study together with a group of teachers (K-6) and a study during an in-service development course where experienced teachers applied gender theory on a real classroom situation, a case. 

     

    The studies show that working with gender is complicated and comprises of many aspects of human life. An important part of gender awareness is to be able to relate to these aspects. A question of vital importance is to challenge conceptions of gender in such a way that the conceptions will be verbalized and thereby visualized. Moreover, the studies show that feminist pedagogy and theory of science can lead to a new approach to teaching and learning in science. For teachers without any background in science, there are other competences than just subject matter knowledge that are vital for teaching. Feminist perspectives in professional development reinforce teachers’ pedagogical competences and their pedagogical content knowledge and thereby make these teachers feel they participate in the scientific practice and contribute in developing both the stuff of knowledge and its culture.

     

    The thesis also contributes to new methodological knowledge about action research. One of the results is that time is an important factor to take into consideration depending on what kind of change you want to receive. The researcher engaged in action research as an "outsider" has an important function in order to monitor the process and pay attention and use critical events to drive the change process forward.

    What is science in preschool and what do teachers have to know to empower children?2014In: Cultural Studies of Science Education, ISSN 1871-1502, E-ISSN 1871-1510, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 275-296Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we problematize the purpose of teaching science in preschool and what competences preschool teachers need in order to conduct science activities in the classroom. The empirical data were collected through an action research project with five preschool and primary school teachers (K-6). In the first section we have used one situation, a floating-sinking experiment, as an illustration of how two different epistemological perspectives generate different foci on which kind of science teaching competences that are fruitful in preschool. In the first perspective, the central goal of science teaching is the development of the children’s conceptual understanding. With this perspective, we found that the science activities with the children were unsuccessful, because the children’s thoughts about concepts did not develop but even the situation enhanced a misconception concerning density. Moreover, the teacher was unsuccessful in supporting the children’s conceptual learning. The second perspective uses a feminist approach that scrutinizes science, where we investigate if the floating-sinking activity contributes to a feeling of participation in a scientific context for the children and if so how the teacher promotes this inclusion. This second perspective showed that the children’s scientific proficiency benefited from the situation; they had acquired a positive experience of the density concept that they could build upon which was reinforced by the teacher. The children discovered that they had power over their own learning by using an experimental approach. On the basis of these findings, we conclude that there are competences other than subject matter knowledge that are also important when preschool teachers engage children in scientific activities. Through process-oriented work with the teacher group, we identified four concrete skills: paying attention to and using children’s previous experiences; capturing unexpected things that happen at the moment they occur; asking questions that challenge the children and that stimulate further investigation; situated presence, that is, “remaining” in the situation and listening to the children and their explanations. We discuss possible ways to move preschool teachers away from their feelings of inadequacy and poor self-confidence in teaching science by reinforcing this kind of pedagogical content knowledge.

    Methodological dilemmas in action research2011In: Educational action research, ISSN 0965-0792, E-ISSN 1747-5074Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study we want to call attention to and discuss two aspects of importance for work toward change regarding fundamental values through action research. The first aspect is time, and taking it into account according to “the action research spiral”. The second aspect concerns the importance of critical events for making progress and challenging preconceived notions. We also stress that researchers as “outsiders” have the opportunity to overview the process in a way that the other participants (insiders) do not. The empirical data is collected from an action research project on science and gender conducted inSweden with teachers from preschool and K-6. The collaboration was proceeded during 2005 to 2010, a total of 57 months.

    Genusperspektiv i naturvetenskaplig undervisning2006In: Naturfagsdidaktikkens mange facetter: Proceedings fra Det 8. nordiske Forskersymposium om undervisningen i naturfag / [ed] Lisbeth Bering, Jens Dolin, Lars Brian Krogh, Jan Sölberg, Helene Sörensen, Rie Troelsen, Köpenhamn: Danmarks Paedagogiska Universitets Forlag , 2006, p. 95-102Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Våren 2005 har ett skolutvecklingsprojekt initierats tillsammans med åtta verksamma lärare för att studera om en ökad genusmedvetenhet kan påverka undervisningen inom naturorienterade ämnen (NO) och teknik. Lärargruppen har tillsammans med projektansvariga diskuterat litteratur från forskning inom genusvetenskap och ämnesdidaktik vid sammanlagt sju seminarietillfällen. Lärarna uppmärksammar könsbundna attitydskillnader till naturvetenskap och teknik. En ökad insikt om flickors behov av att se helheter och förstå sammanhang har fått lärarna att tänka kring sin undervisning i NO/teknik på ett nytt sätt. Lärarna har bland annat provat att presentera samma undervisningsmoment på olika sätt i flick- respektive pojkgrupper. Träning och erfarenhet inom ett område som eleverna tidigare inte behärskar, skapar trygghet och förtrogenhet med ämnet och därigenom kan attitydskillnader överbryggas. För att bättre kunna förmedla ett intresse och engagemang till eleverna uttrycker lärarna en önskan om kompetensutveckling inom NO/teknik. I artikeln presenteras delresultat från intervjuer med fyra av de deltagande lärarna.

    Gender theory as a tool for analyzing science teaching2009In: Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, ISSN 0742-051X, E-ISSN 1879-2480, Vol. 25, no 2, p. 336-343Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines to what extent experienced teachers are aware of gender issues in the science classroom. It also explores how an introduction to gender theory might alter this awareness. Teachers wrote their reflections about a real classroom situation. They were then asked to analyse the same situation after having read texts that discussed gender theory concepts. The fourteen teachers' understanding about gender and society were challenged. Some teachers were able to analyse the case differently by applying gender theory, others discussed the case on a more general level, while one teacher showed signs of resistance regarding gender theory.

    Gender theory as a tool for analysing science teaching2008In: Planning science instruction - from insight to learning to pedagogical practices: proceedings of the 9th Nordic Research Symposium on Science Education, 11th-15th June 2008, Reykjavík, Iceland, Reykjavík: School of education, University of Iceland , 2008, p. 168-170Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Attempts to reform science education have to a minor extent taken into account that gender issues may have an influence on the pupils, their learning and interest. Therefore, examples of using feminist or gender theories for analyzing or planning science education are difficult to find in the literature (Nyström 2007, Sinnes 2006). The aim of this study is to examine to what extent experienced teachers apprehend the gender order within the scientific classroom and also to explore if it is possible to achieve a change in these apprehensions. In-service teachers have unprepared written down their reflections about a real classroom situation, a case, and afterwards got the task of analyzing the situation once again after reading a gender theory. The teachers’ texts have been analyzed in several steps: first, the written material was analyzed to find and form categories of relevance; second, sections were raised that pointed out if the teachers had used the gender theory and in what way they had used it; and third, a comparison was made on an individual level of the teachers’ explanations in the two different tasks. The results show that the participating teachers’ understandings about gender and society were challenged ,which is expressed in different ways in their texts. One group of teachers was able to apply the theory on the concrete classroom event, another group had a discussion on a more general level, while one teacher showed a resistance to the theory and thereby also to the task. The fact that the teachers deepen and widen their interpretation of a real classroom’s event when they get access to a gender theory indicates that this method can be applied in teacher education. The usage of cases can be an instrument to link theories to practical work.

    "Genus är att låta barnen vara dom de är" - hur barnsyn och genusmedvetenhet får ämnesdidaktiska konsekvenser.2012In: Utbildning och lärandeArticle in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports from a study exploring how an increased knowledge about gender issues can affect pre-school student teachers’ reflections and actions concerning science and technology activities. We have analysed written assignments given to student enrolled in a teacher education programme as well as group discussions that were part of their science and technology courses. One assignment was focused on describing situations during their pre-school placements where the students themselves judged gender to be important. The analysis identifies a reoccurring argumentation among the students that draws on an idea that children need to ‘be who they are’, thus portraying them as having a stable core identity. In this paper we ask what it means to let the children ‘be who they are’ and what the consequences of this view for developing the pre-school according to the curriculum and the education act can be. In doing so, we discuss issues that respectively may promote and hinder pre-school teachers to develop strategies that challenges stereotypical gender patterns. Furthermore, we problematize what consequences this might have for science teaching.

    Ignoring Half the Sky: A Feminist Critique of Science Education’s Knowledge Society2013In: Science Education for Diversity: Theory and Practice / [ed] N. Mansour & R. Wegerif, Rotterdam: Springer Netherlands, 2013, p. 301-315Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A Chinese proverb observes that women “hold up half the sky”, yet often in science education we have ignored the knowledge generated by feminist researchers about how females engage and participate in science. Further, science education has often failed to consider the implications from feminist critiques of science on science education. This chapter will provide a feminist perspective on who generates knowledge in science education and what knowledge is acceptable as ‘scientific’ by the field. Second, we will discuss the culture of science education and discuss whether science educators value the knowledge produced by gender and feminist researchers. In particular, we will examine the integration (or lack thereof) of gender issues into the dominant areas in science education research, such as teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge, the development of students’ science knowledge through inquiry, the role of conceptual change, and teachers’ preparation and professional development programs. Third, we will provide examples of how gender theory and feminist perspectives in science education could generate new knowledge about gender and science education.

    Interstitial Spaces: A Model for Transgressive Processes2016In: Illdisciplined Gender: Engaging Questions of Nature/Culture and Transgressive Encounters / [ed] Bull, J. & Fahlgren, M., Cham: Springer, 2016, p. 11-30Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter introduces the concepts of interstitial spaces and transgressive identities to examine the boundaries of gender and feminist studies, science, and education and discuss our research practices and positions. We use a metalogue as the vehicle for analyzing our autobiographies to provide examples when we have operated in interstitial spaces and engaged transgressive identities. Interstitial spaces exist between and within boundaries. These spaces are possible sites within a defined context (a discipline, a practice, a culture) that may be occupied by an actor/agent working as a “carrier” of different cultural practices, knowledge, and theories. A “carrier” can use the interstitial space to influence and challenge a “new” context and thus loosen up boundaries but can also by experiencing new cultures and developing new knowledge return to the “old” culture to integrate these new practices. Thus, interstitial spaces establish a context for transgressive identities to emerge so one can act in ways to transform and change the cultures of disciplines. We usetransgressive identities as a theoretical description and understanding of our research practices and positions.
