Development of student self-study activities

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingContribution to book/anthologyCommunication


This paper is based on research that both identifies student teachers' understanding of selfinitiated study activities and intervenes through testing a design based prototype for teacher education practices. The prototype produced will be put simultaneously into play in several context of the teacher education and will aim at strengthening students' motivation for choosing self-initiated activities. The motivation should for example be based on students´ perception of relevance and quality of their own initiatives and the possibility of guidance in self-selected activities. This paper will describe the production process and results of the intervention and will also refer to the paper “Student teachers’ interpretation of their independent learning activities”, which the design of the prototype is based on. The interpretation of data from the prototype study
will aim to evaluate the possibility of developing educational theories for the teachers’ education in an effort to develop independence as a study skill.
