Abstract [sv]

Utmaningarna för lärare i högre utbildning att fullgöra sitt pedagogiska uppdrag har uppmärksammats och debatterats i olika sammanhang den senaste tiden (e.g. SvD, 2018-01-21; DN, 2017-09-27). Enligt Högskoleverket (2009) har skillnaderna i förkunskaper bland studenter ökat och studentgrupperna blivit större. Brommesson et al. (2016) menar att den förändrade studentpopulationen innebär en utmaning för den enskilde läraren i konkreta undervisningssituationer. Därtill förändras samhällets kompetensbehov över tid och teknisk utveckling ger möjligheter att bedriva undervisning under andra former än tidigare. Kurser och utbildningar behöver därför utvecklas över tid, för att fortsätta vara aktuella och anpassade efter de behov och förutsättningar som finns. Vid utveckling av kurser och utbildningar krävs både pedagogiska idéer och en fungerande struktur som gör denna utveckling möjlig, där idéerna tas tillvara för att senare omsättas i praktiken. Det har vid ett pedagogiskt utvecklingsprojekt vid mittuniversitetet uppmärksammats några problem med nuvarande stöd:  Resurser och information finns inte på ett ställe  Kunskapsutbyte är begränsat  Det finns inget systematiskt stöd Syfte med detta bidrag är att presentera, diskutera, och få feedback på, en modell för systematisk kursutveckling över tid, för att bemöta ovanstående problem. En modell för ständiga förbättringar presenteras, där pedagogisk utveckling och kursadministration samverkar för att på ett systematiskt sätt tillvarata idéer och lärdomar, och underlätta kunskapsutbyte. Visuellt består modellen av ett administrativt och ett pedagogiskt kurshjul som tillsammans ska täcka upp allt som behövs för att planera, genomföra och utveckla en kurs - från deadlines för administrativa moment till idéer om undervisningsformer och utvärdering. Idén är att man enkelt ska kunna klicka sig fram på en webbsida, till allt som är aktuellt/intressant i det stadie kursen befinner sig - planering, genomförande eller utvärdering och utveckling. Vi kommer att argumentera för att en fungerande kursutveckling underlättas av visuellt stöd och en tydlig arbetsgång. Målgrupp för den här presentationen är i huvudsak undervisande lärare som vill hitta vägar för att mer systematiskt arbeta med kursutveckling.

Abstract [en]

1983 was the starting year for an interdisciplinary and sustainability oriented education program at the former university college in Östersund, located in the Mid Sweden mountain region. In this paper – 30 years later - the different phases that the educational program has passed over the years is examined with an entrepreneurial focus. In 1983 the “slogan” for the education was: “Ecology, economy and technology in cooperation for sustainable development”. One of the main ideas was to have a problem solving and entrepreneurial focus in the education. The goal was that the students should be prepared to start their own businesses after graduating, based on ideas they had developed during the education. The first years the program was two years in length, partly based on the idea to not “wear out” eager entrepreneurs with too many study years. Later a third year was added, to fulfill the bachelor’s level. In the late 1990’s the education had become part of Mid Sweden University, which during that period were struggling for full University status. This put pressure towards “academization” of the education program, which had its benefits but also its problems from the entrepreneurship angle. During the first decade after the millennia shift the education took a more international focus attracting students from many countries all over the world.  A Master’s level was also added to the program and the first graduate students received their Ph.D. during this period. The latest development is to split the Bachelor’s program into three “sister” programs: the Ecoengineers with a more traditional engineer focus (but still interdisciplinary), the Ecoentrepreneurs with less chemistry and math, but more social entrepreneur and green procurement courses, and the Ecotechnology students standing in between as the most interdisciplinary students.

Abstract [en]

An important part of a society’s resilience is how prepared it is to cope with the changing conditions during the alpha and omega phases according to resilience theory. Lars Thofelt, an academic from the mid Sweden region, early recognized this need for students to develop skills needed for a societal change, and devoted his life to pedagogy suitable for this. The main outcome of his achievement was the interdisciplinary university program in Ecotechnics/Ecotechnology (Ekoteknik in Swedish), at Mid Sweden University. Ecology, economy and technology in cooperation for sustainable development were the original approach, and still are.Thofelt’s ideas had a main focus of helping students develop their inherent capabilities of solving problems and overcome obstacles. After Thofelt’s 12 years at the program his ideas were carried on by former colleagues and students, and the teaching further developed with a mix of the Thofelt tradition and other experiences brought in by new employees. This paper describes this interdisciplinary teaching approach with special focus on development of resilience capacity in students.It was concluded that 1) a key element to develop resilience skills in students is to push them to a self-propelled learning behavior rather than traditional teaching, 2) not too easily provide the students with answers will develop their problem solving skills, 3) doing-before-reading teaching is more time consuming but seem to give deeper knowledge, 4) interdisciplinary teaching will in the long run benefit from having the interdisciplinary team within the department, rather than as a conglomerate of several departments.
