2017 (English)In: INTED2017 Proceedings, IATED , 2017, 4219-4227 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Academisation and digitalisation are two processes functioning as catalysts for the changes vocational programs in higher education are undergoing. In this paper, a distance-based police education to be launched during spring 2017 in a Swedish university is studied as an example of one such program. In specific, the focus in this paper is a professional development course on pedagogical digital competence (PDC) which 18 police teachers working at the program participated in. The course contained both conceptual (know-why) knowledge and practical (know-how) knowledge about teaching and learning in a distance context. Results from a survey, building on the Technological Pedagogical and Content Knowledge (TPACK)-model, taken before and after the course show tendencies that the police teachers had developed their PDC, especially their technological content knowledge (TCK).
