Closeness and distance : A hermeneutical study in nursing assistant teachers' experience of working with distance education within health and social care education (English)
Abstract [sv]

Det övergripande syftet med denna studie var att beskriva, tolka och förstå vårdlärares upplevelse av att arbeta med distansundervisning på vård- och omsorgsprogrammets vuxenutbildning. Studien genomfördes som en kvalitativ intervjuundersökning med hermeneutiskt perspektiv.

I resultatet framkom nio metaforer som konkretiserar vårdlärarnas upplevelse av arbetet. Metaforerna gestaltar distansformens betydelse för vårdlärarna och visade att vårdlärarna upplevde den egna erfarenheten som ett oumbärligt didaktiskt verktyg. Vårdlärarnas personliga egenskaper var av större betydelse än de tekniska hjälpmedlen. Vikten av att etablera en personlig relation med den studerande och att stötta och stärka den studerandes självkänsla förstods som centralt i vårdlärarnas arbete. Både det webbaserade samtalet och det fysiska mötet samt snabb återkoppling bidrog till att etablera en personlig relation, vilket främjar lärandet. Svagheter med distansformen var när språket inte räckte till, när den studerande hade begränsad studievana, brist på erfarenhet av vård- och omsorgsarbete samt tidsbrist. De flesta av vårdlärarna hade genomfört sina egna vårdlärarstudier på distans. Vårdlärarnas förförståelse, kompetens i flera ämnen med lång och bred yrkeserfarenhet, ett tydligt mål i form av en hög vård- och omsorgskvalitet, samt ett starkt intresse för att den studerande skulle lyckas, gjorde arbetet som distanslärare meningsfullt och betydelsefullt för de studerandes kunskapsutveckling.

Abstract [en]

The overall aim of this study was to describe, interpret and understand nursing assistant teachers’ experience of working with distance learning for adult students within health and social care education. The study was conducted as qualitative interviews with hermeneutic theoretical perspective.

The result indicated nine metaphors that concretize nursing assistant teachers’ perception of their work. The metaphors show the meaning of the distance learning for the teachers and that they regarded their own experience as an indispensable didactic tool. Nursing assistant teachers’ personal characteristics were more important than the technical aids. The importance of establishing a personal relationship with the student, to support and enhance the student's self-esteem were understood as central to the teachers work. Both the web-based conversation and the physical meeting along with rapid feedback helped establish a personal relationship, which promotes learning. Weaknesses in the distance form was when the language was insufficient, when students had limited study habits, lack of experience of care work and lack of time. Most of the nursing assistant teachers had themselves experience of distance learning from their own studies. Nursing assistant teachers’ pre-understanding, expertise in several subjects with extensive professional experience, a distinct aim to higher health-care quality, as well as a strong interest to see the students succeed, made the distance teacher role meaningful and important for the development of the students’ knowledge.
