dc.description.abstract Across Europe, higher education institutions are currently investigating how to better address the higher education needs of refugees. Initiatives notably include special student grants, waiving certain entrance requirements, or offering courses in English alongside the national languages. In Sweden, several initiatives aim to accelerate the insertion of newly arrived refugees into working life. Particular attention is devoted to validation in higher education, and the question of how qualified newcomers can convert their qualifications to Swedish requirements. Recognition of refugees’ prior qualifications is also a crucial point with respect to admissions based on secondary or post-secondary diplomas obtained in the country of origin. The project Newly arrived students aims to examine the conditions existing at Malmö University both with respect to procedures of admission, as well as possibilities for offering tailored courses adapted to needs among the refugees in the region. The pedagogical implications of providing education to these student populations will be explored, as well as administrative aspects the measures might entail. http://www.mah.se/Forskning/Sok-pagaende-forskning/Nyanlandas-behov-av-utbildning--Mojligheter-och-hinder-/ en_US

dc.description.other Interplay between general and subject specific knowledge about teaching and learning in school and teacher education - perspectives and challenges. General and subject specific knowledge about teaching and learning is complementary. Both have the aim to understand and deal with problems of education in order to facilitate student learning. From a general position scholars are investigating general conditions for schooling, such as child development, social background, multilingualism, classroom management etc. and from a subject specific position scholars deal with legitimacy and importance of school subjects and investigate particular problems, traditions and discourses in the different subjects. Up to a point the two positions have lived their separate lives, as distinct research traditions, and they have generated separate policy recommendations with little interplay, and sometimes even tensions, between them - this is true at least in a in a Nordic context. In recent years there have been encouraging signs of new perspectives promoting interplay of the two. In a Danish context one such perspective has been labelled comparative didactics (Sammenlignende fagdidaktik - SFD). Maintaining a dual anchoring in general and subject specific knowledge about teaching and learning comparative didactics takes an interest in problems and conditions common to the school subjects, such as the use of technology and implementation of learning goals, competence perspectives and multi subject course work, which are relatively new on the agenda, but also classic cross subject problems facing new challenges, such as reading, writing, creative skills, assessment etc. Writing is one example that can be considered a generic phenomenon with generic characteristics such as letters, spelling, writing acts, modes of writing, use of media etc. On the other hand writing always takes place within subjects, with subject specific demands on style, genre, and specialised vocabulary and so on. Some functions in the subjects remain more or less unchanged when using the new technology in writing; other functions are transformed in the process. Therefore there is an apparent need for interplay between general and subject specific knowledge which hopefully could produce new insights e.g. into the consequences for the subjects of the introduction of new writing practices, and new technology. The same can be said for other areas of general interest; problem solving, competence-building, innovation, learning strategies, effective teaching, values in education etc. Where ever we look connection can be seen between the general interest in teaching and learning, and the subject specific interests. NOFA 6 invites contributors to participate in this ongoing discussion and welcomes papers both from a general and a subject specific perspective. And a special interest will be in the area that constitutes the interplay between the two perspectives. en_US
