Abstract [en]

The three year long research project, here reported, draws on cooperation between educational researchers from Tanzania and Sweden. Even though the country contexts differ in social, economicas well as educational conditions and state of teacher education and classroom standards, many recurrent education challenges are shared. These include the tendency to make educational reforms with little or no input from professionals. In both countries a number of costly reform decisions have been taken without substantially improving learning or teaching. Both countries struggle with students’ weak (in Tanzania) or declining (in Sweden) results nationally and internationally. They thus share a corresponding concern for how to improve education quality. Further, in both countries new outcomes based curricula have been implemented. These new curricula put a much higher responsibility on teachers; teachers must be able to organize teaching that enables all students to develop required abilities/competences. Thus, teachers need tools to develop knowledge that can contribute to their professional knowledge base.
