Abstract [en]

This research paper is about one aspect of the current internationalization, or Europeanization, of higher education of today. It addresses in particular linguistic issues in relation to or as an aspect of internationalization/Europeanization and how they are discursively constructed. Recent developments in Swedish higher education language policy texts are used as an example. Even though the ongoing mapping shows small signs of linguistic plurality, the dominant position of English is not challenged.

Abstract [en]

Higher education change is an important area of investigation in Sweden today. It is the largest government sector and its transformation is therefore societally important. This research paper is about one aspect of the changing characteristics of internationalising, or Europeanizing, higher education of today. It addresses in particular the question of language(s) in relation to, or as an aspect of, internationalisation. One of the key dimensions of change is in relation to the importance of international exchange and communication. The increased emphasis on English as an academic lingua franca in higher education practices, policies and quality assessment is significant, and this dominant position needs to be addressed. By close up research on linguistic issues in policy processes on internationalisation, taking Sweden as an example, this present study aims at drawing attention to language issues as part of academic practices. Recent developments in Swedish higher education language policy are used as an example. The webpages of 27 Swedish universities and approved language policies of these universities (all in all twelve) have been investigated, theoretically and methodologically framed within a critical tradition and CDA. Mapping of language plurality and an initial analysis on content and discursive construals, show that language diversity and awareness exists to some extent; that inclusive language practices are to be found; that attempts to problematize linguistic traditions are made; that implications on academic work in some areas can be described as immense, e.g. on language competences in relation to teaching and that the dominant position of English is unchallenged.

Abstract [sv]

De utvecklingsarbeten som presenteras i denna rapport är en del av den högskolepedagogiska grundutbildningen som finns vid Högskolan i Borås. Syftet med utbildningen är att stödja universitetslärare att utveckla ett reflekterande och kritiskt undersökande förhållningssätt till sin praktik samt att stimulera till en pedagogisk diskussion. Att forska i egen praktik (aktionsforskning), utvecklar såväl undervisning som utbildning samt bidrar till individens utveckling mot ’Scholarship of Teaching and Learning’.

Abstract [sv]

Vid Högskolan i Borås (HB), liksom vid alla våra lärosäten, formuleras och konstrueras visioner, planer och riktlinjer årligen i form av lokala styrdokument. Tre av dessa styrdokument1, Policy för kursutvärderingsarbetet vid Högskolan i Borås, Plan för jämställdhet och mångfald för anställda vid Högskolan i Borås och Likabehandlingsplan för studenter vid Högskolan i Borås, är föremål för det strategiska utvecklingsarbetet som här presenteras. I vårt utvecklingsarbete fokuserar vi på implementering av styrdokument utifrån ett pedagogiskt perspektiv, vilket i det här sammanhanget innebär att undervisande personal kopplar styrdokumenten till undervisning och kurser. Som arbetsmodell för detta har vi valt fokusgrupper.

Abstract [en]

Bernstein (1971) claims that a curriculum defines what valid knowledge is. A question to be asked in accordance with this then is: what is defined as “valid knowledge” in the teacher education curriculum in Sweden? The governmental bill of 1999/2000:135 states that teacher education will educate teachers to encounter a multicultural school and a society characterized by diversity. What traces of multiculturalism are visible in the curriculum? What perspectives on multiculturalism might teachers of tomorrow thereby receive in their education? The purpose of our study has been to uncover multicultural discourses in the course syllabi in “the general area of education”, AUO, in teacher education. In the study, 177 course syllabi from 22 universities in Sweden were scrutinized. Multiculturalism, according to our interpretation, is not only a question of ethnicity and nationality or religion but also of class. One of our main results has shown that the multicultural discourse is formed on the basis of a monocultural perspective, i e Swedish and middleclass. Culture, irrespective of being about class or ethnicity, is “talked about” as a feature belonging to the Other both on an individual and collective level. Previous research into educational contexts reveals similar findings (for example Gundara, 2005; Lahdenperä, 1997; Sjögren, 2001). Our findings also show that the multicultural discourse is characterized by deficits. In syllabi, issues of ethnicity/nationality and multilingualism are expressed as if they were issues of functional disorder. Pupils when being categorized as “not Swedish”, for example, are seen as having certain characteristics that will disenable them from learning. Their culture affects the pupils’ capacity for learning and teacher students have to learn about the Others’ background. In what follows an introduction to teacher education in Sweden, a presentation of how this study was carried out and a closer analysis of its results will be provided. The concluding section will include a short discussion of the possible pedagogical consequences that this may entail.
