    Doing interdisciplinarity in teacher education: Resources for learning through writing in two educational programmes2017In: Education Inquiry, E-ISSN 2000-4508, Vol. 8, no 4, p. 299-317Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With a focus on resources for learning through writing, this paper compares the interdisciplinary framings of two teacher education programmes. What are the implications of these framings and resources for students’ possibilities when they write independent projects/bachelor theses? The paper presents a case study with data (interviews, texts, observations) from two different teacher education programmes. The conceptual framework stems from the Academic Literacies approach. The analysis shows that one of the programmes shapes interdisciplinarity by a “block approach” that allows students to work independently, while the other is shaped as a “bridging approach” with tight collaboration between students and tutors. The two educational programmes apply the same national regulating documents in different ways, thus creating different possibilities for students to learn and write as “independent” or “collaborative” students, respectively. The results contribute to a discussion of higher education structure and the role of writing within it.

    Appropriering av fackkunskap - förutsättning för ett "godkänt" akademiskt skrivande?2009In: Skriving i kunnskapssamfunnet / [ed] Vatn, G. Å.; Folkvord, I. & Smidt, J, Trondheim: Tapir Akademisk Forlag , 2009, p. 143-160Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Som lärare suckar vi lätt över studenter som refererar osjälvständigt eller till och med ordagrant, trots att vi efterfrågat syntes, kritiskt förhållningssätt och diskussion. Men som akademiska skribenter kanske vi själva skriver ganska osjälvständigt när vi för en gångs skull inte skriver om vårt eget ämne, utan om något för oss nytt. Mycket av kopiering och osjälvständigt skrivande kanske beror på att kunskaperna är nya för skribenten. Måste man ha approprierat kunskaper, gjort dem till ”sina egna”, för att texten man skriver ska ge ett akademiskt, integrerat och självständigt intryck? Kräver vi för mycket, till exempel kritiskt förhållnings­sätt, av nybörjarstudenter? Frågorna diskuteras här med utgångspunkt i en pilotundersökning om hur oerfarna respektive erfarna akademiska skribenter skriver om nya respektive approprierade kunskaper.

    "Att skriva avtal är att förutse problem": Medierad diskursanalys som metod för att studera bolagsjuristers textbruk2013In: Sakprosa, ISSN 1502-6000, E-ISSN 1891-5108, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 1-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    By applying concepts from Mediated Discourse Analysis (MDA, Scollon & Scollon 2004), this article contributes to the field of applied linguistics theoretically and empirically. The theoretical issue is the problematization raised by e.g. Karlsson (2010) on how to regard the text–“context” relationship. The empirical contribution concerns our knowledge about how texts are used in professional communication. The data consists of observations of company lawyers’ work, interviews, a focus group, a few texts and feedback from lawyers on preliminary findings. The results show that the writing of contracts is a predominant social practice (or practice of nexus, as several practices are included in this) for company lawyers; that this practice includes anticipating and avoiding problems for the company; and how this practise is locally performed together with other professional representatives. MDA is shown i.e. to include concepts for analysing actors dealing with complexity out of the immediate interaction.

    From percentage to prediction: University students meeting a parallel language of visuals and numerals2011In: Ibérica, ISSN 1139-7241, E-ISSN 2340-2784, no 22, p. 123-139Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A less-frequently discussed parallel-linguistic issue is the parallel language of visuals and numerals: the diagrams, tables, models, mathematical signs and different symbols that students have to deal with in their reading and writing. Texts are multimodal, that is they are constructed with visual objects and different sign systems as well as writing. For new students, it can be difficult to grasp how visuals and numerals can have different meanings in different contexts, such as academic disciplines. For teachers, the disciplinary use of the visuals and numerals is often so ingrained that they may have difficulty seeing the problems that students face. Drawing on the theoretical framework of social semiotics and the neo-Vygotskian perspective, this article shows how new students of economics in Sweden encounter a multimodal academic literacy. The article also discusses some of the difficulties relating to this situation and arguesfor a raised awareness among teachers in order to scaffold students intoacademic, visual literacies.

    Medierande redskap - ett sätt att se på högre utbildning och yrkesliv i samverkan?2007In: Skrive for nåtid og framtid: Bind II: Skriving og rettleiing i högre utdanning, Tapir Akademisk Forlag , 2007, p. 12-22Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vilka intellektuella och språkliga redskap behöver man på en arbetsplats? Vad kan högskolan göra för att träna dessa? I avhandlingen "Studenters skrivande i två kunskapsbyggande miljöer" används begreppet medierande redskap som ett sätt att se på språkliga aktiviteter som även är kognitiva och sociala. I artikeln argumenteras för att begreppet medierande redskap kan innebära ett givande sätt att betrakta skrivande och lärande i övergångarna mellan skola, högre utbildning och yrkesliv. Bland annat kan det skrivpedagogiska problemet vad en utbildning kan ge för skrivutvecklingen få en delvis ny inriktining med ett fokus på medierande redskap i stället för endast på genre. Dessutom kan pedagogik som bygger på begreppet öka motivationen hos studenterna när det blir tydligare att man i yrkeslivet kan bygga vidare på de sätt att skriva och tänka som används inom utbildningen.

    Studenters skrivande i två kunskapsbyggande miljöer2004Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The subject of this study is student writing in its institutional setting, examining students’ texts, professional discourse and educational practices. Fieldwork for the study was conducted at the departments of History and Economics of Stockholm University. The general aim of the study is to increase our understanding of the relationships between student writing, educational settings and professional discourse. The theoretical framework is the sociocultural approach as outlined by Wertsch from Bakhtin and Vygotsky, and applied on writing research by above all Dysthe. The theoretical-methodological attempts are an operationalisation of the concept of dialogicity in different aspects and an application of the concept of mediational means at the linguistic level of text type or speech act.

    The type of dialogicity and epistemology of a setting is shown to have major influences on students’ writing. The epistemology of economics is defined as rationalistic, and that of history as critical-pluralistic. In economics, linear logical reasoning with clear-cut solutions is a key mediational means, while reasoning with a multitude of perspectives is given precedence in history. Students adjust their texts to the kind of dialogicity in the setting. However, in interviews, some students, mainly in economics, exhibit a resistance to the epistemology and mediational means of their discipline. This resistance seems not to influence their texts, but in all probability the depth of their learning. In addition, the socialisation seems to be a more prolonged process in economics. The reasons may be that the mediational means have a weak connection to students’ previous knowledge and that they are not collectively applied in economics to the same extent as in history.

    Thus, a pedagogical conclusion is that the important mediational means of a discipline should be collectively applied during study. Moreover, student writing should be considered in relation to students’ previous knowledge, their course of study and their future professional activity.

    Text, tid och handling i ett reglerat rum: En diskursanalys av mediering i hybrid arbetslivskommunikation2022In: Språk och stil, ISSN 1101-1165, E-ISSN 2002-4010, Vol. 32, p. 5-37Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Calls have been raised for more research on the use of texts and other types of in real-life communicationin real-life situations, which are often complex and hybrid. This study is based on data from a meeting at a hospital ward where a Key Account Manager from a pharmaceutical business informs staff about a medical product during their lunch hour. Mediated discourse analysis is applied to map the mediating trajectories of the texts used in the meeting and to reveal the role of people in this mediation. The analysis shows that the situation can be regarded as a mediation of a discourse concerning the marketing of medical products and of actual legaltexts, stating that pharmaceutical businesses cannot offer doctors values such as expensive dinners. Besides a PowerPoint document, other material resources and practices such as a modest meal contribute to the situation. In the texts, a medical-scientific discourse, a commercial discourse and an administrative discourse are mixed. Doctors’ actions of prescribing the productare anticipated by the Key Account Manager’s actions of 1) constructing an ‘historical body’ of trust, 2) emphasizing certain textual messages at the same time and offering these texts in adurable material form. This manner of simultaneous and/or durable material forms is introduced as discursive layering. The study presents an empirical case of how ‘big discourses’ are mediated into local actions which, in turn, are targeted to affect future actions.

    “Put a meeting in my calendar!” The literacy practice of the digital calendar in workplaces2019In: Sakprosa, ISSN 1502-6000, E-ISSN 1891-5108, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 1-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Modern work life includes many digital tools, of which the shared digital calendar has attracted little attention in applied linguistics. The framework for this study is mediated discourse analysis applied to ethnographic data from one workplace and eight contextual interviews from eight other workplaces. The data were analyzed 1) qualitatively, using Wertsch’s (1998) concepts for agency, and 2) quantitatively, through an SFG (Systemic Functional Grammar) analysis of the interviews. The quantitative analysis reveals a high degree of agency. The qualitative analysis shows that discourses of managerialism, globalization, democratization and “flat organizations” can be mapped to the digital calendar. The calendar is also related to other text media such as whiteboards and time report systems, where squares with colors and writing constitute the discursive shapes that are common to the digital calendar. The ability to search and book meetings in the calendars of others is an affordance, although regulated through digital or verbal access. In this and other ways, the individual is strongly connected to the digital tool. The boundary between private and public has been challenged by digital tools. Social actors can resist, e.g., by non-compliance in using the digital calendar, thus increasing their sense of agency. Additional features include the ability to combine different media and develop practices that are not directly offered by the design of the tool. The digital tool both widens the agency of the actors, e.g., in keeping a great deal of information connected to one meeting, and delimits it, e.g., in sometimes rendering individuals helpless to what they see in their own calendars.

    “It’s not the same thing as last time I wrote a report”: Digital text sharing in changing organizations2023In: Applied Linguistics Review, ISSN 1868-6303, E-ISSN 1868-6311, Vol. 14, no 4, p. 799-822Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the communications of modern organizations, text sharing and knowledge management are mainly digital. The digital systems that frame many types of communication consist of, e.g., intranets and document sharing software that are occasionally exchanged for new systems. Employees have to adjust to modified routines and learn new systems, and management has to make decisions about digital systems and how these are to be integrated with work processes and knowledge management. In this article, we contribute to research on work-life literacies by highlighting the increasingly frequent issue of digital text sharing in modern workplaces through the study of commercial companies, mainly through ethnographic observations and interviews. The theoretical framework comes from New Literacy Studies where literacy practices, i.e., common patterns of using reading and writing, form a key concept. Moreover, the sociolinguistic concept of metadiscourse is applied in order to uncover the reflexive orientation of participating professionals towards digital text sharing. The results show that these professionals relate the combination of digital text sharing and technological and organizational change to problems, obstacles and potential risks; ambitions of enhancing digital text sharing may exclude certain groups, and changes in digital text sharing systems per se may cause professionals to lose control. These risks are often associated with access to information: a person who cannot access information in their organization has a lower degree of agency or power over their situation. The results are discussed in light of theories concerning modern work life from New Literacy Studies.

    Abstract [en]

    Translation and interpreting in the workplace are not always performed by translationprofessionals in planned situations. In this article, collective ad hoc-translation/interpreting by non-translators in a workplace meeting is analyzed. The analysis gives an example of ad hoc-translation that take place in work life situations: there are no distinct divisions between different roles, or between source text and target text, and there are no clear borders between translation and interpreting, since both written texts and verbal interaction are present. The study confirms recent problematizations of conceptions of translation and interpreting in real life situations and highlights the role of digital tools in non-professional workplace translation.

    Mångfald, möten och mejl: En forskningsöversikt och tre fallstudier om arbetslivskommunikation2018Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här antologin beskrivs människor, redskap och situationer som många känner igen från dagens komplexa och rörliga arbetsliv:

    • En mellanchef vars arbetsdagar i hög grad styrs av de många möten som andra lagt in i hennes kalender.
    • En whiteboardtavla som kopplar samman olika delar av en verksamhet, och även kopplar möten till andra aktiviteter.
    • Flera samverkande organisationer som gör det svårt att skilja internkommunikation från annan kommunikation, och som både ökar behovet av kommunikation och försvårar den.

    Dessa skildras i tre uppsatser av Angie Gravett, Emma Legaard och Sofia Johansson. I en forskningsöversikt sammanfattar forskarna Mona Blåsjö och Carla Jonsson sociolingvistisk forskning om arbetslivskommunikation, med fokus på skrivbordsyrken. Översikten visar ur ett individperspektiv hur enskilda anställda förhåller sig till språk i sin vardag på arbetsplatsen, och ur ett organisatoriskt perspektiv diskuteras hur flera språk kan användas på en och samma arbetsplats. De studier som presenteras bygger på olika metoder (kvalitativa, kvantitativa, etnografiska osv.) och ger därigenom en bild av hur man kan gå tillväga för att analysera arbetslivskommunikation. Översikten fokuserar på tre teman: mångfald, dvs. olika aspekter av flerspråkighet på arbetsplatser, möten och annan muntlig kommunikation samt mejl eller snarare mejlande: textprocesser och digitala redskap i arbetslivet.

    Antologin är lämplig för studenter på grundnivå och forskarnivå, men kan även läsas av alla som är intresserade av hur moderna organisationer arbetar med sin kommunikation.

    Abstract [en]

    In modern business organizations, digital practices are enacted daily, often when sharing texts, which is crucial for knowledge management. How professionals experience digital text sharing is an issue that is often overlooked. In this paper, we focus on a relatively new aspect of business digital literacy: the literacy practice of digital text sharing in workplaces. Our analysis was conducted on ethnographic data from business organizations. The results show that sociomaterial aspects are enacted by professionals by discussing 1) the protection of borders of their own and other organizations, and 2) the status and digital location of texts. The analysis highlights two means of expressing agency that indicate conflicting norms: joking and showing strong emotions. The study places the hitherto backgrounded literacy practice of digital text sharing in workplaces in the foreground, proposes methods for studying this phenomenon, and highlights issues concerning digital text sharing that should be addressed by organizations.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the design space of genre pedagogy and virtual learning environments. This is done by examining the cornerstones of genre pedagogy and the main activities they give raise to, and how the activities are transformed when they are partly or completely moved from the classroom to virtual learning environments, and what implications for interaction design they give raise to.

    Abstract [sv]

    Allt fler svenskar ställs inför upgiften att skriva ett examensarbete på högskolan. Varför är det så svårt? Artikelförfattarna menar att många studenter har svårt att förstå uppgiftens karaktär: texten ska vara ett välargumenterat, faktabaserat inlägg i en pågående vetenskaplig diskussion. Också lärarna kan ha svårt att förmedla den insikten; den är på något sätt alltför självklar för dem.

    Genre pedagogy for digital learning environments: Design patterns for dialogues about texts2016In: Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Designs for Learning: May 18-20, Copenhagen, Denmark / [ed] Anne-Mette Nortvig, Birgitte Holm Sørensen, Morten Misfeldt, Rikke Ørngreen, Benjamin Allsopp, Birgitte Henningsen, Heidi Hautopp, Aalborg: Aalborg Universitetsforlag, 2016, p. 79-97Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The design of digital learning environments is not a neutral enterprise. The design tells about the designers’ and developers’ view of a learning activity. The main idea in this paper is to map knowledge about genre pedagogy in practice, in prospect of new applications of technology in future teaching practices. The research questions were: How is genre pedagogy implemented in traditional classrooms? How could digital learning environments be designed in order to take advantage of how genre pedagogy is implemented in traditional classrooms? The point of departure for our study is an analysis of three existing case studies of use of genre pedagogy in the classroom. The analysis indicated that genre pedagogy was adapted to the students differing writing experience. Moreover, the different stages of the method could be implemented at various times during the process and they could also be present in varying degrees. On the basis of these results, we argue for certain ways to design digital learning environments based on genre pedagogy. We use design patterns as means for making our design suggestions concrete, and available for communication and development.

    Translanguaging and multimodality in workplace texts and writing2020In: International Journal of Multilingualism, ISSN 1479-0718, E-ISSN 1747-7530, Vol. 17, no 3, p. 361-381Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Professionals working in international companies in Sweden are expected to speak, read, and write in Swedish and English in their daily work. This article discusses professional writing in different languages. Through the use of methods from linguistic ethnography, we aim to enrich the understanding of workplace literacy by studying writing and texts in multilingual business contexts. Our results show that professionals are expected to navigate between a translanguaging mode and a more monolingual mode in everyday communication. Also, when they opt for producing monolingual texts, literacy practices that surround those texts are often multilingual. Moreover, they imagine a future, secondary audience for their texts, often resulting in the choice of English for reaching out, or in the choice of Swedish as a way of keeping matters local. Knowing when to choose a translanguaging mode or a more monolingual mode is a necessary skill or competence in this type of workplace. Our results also show that the use of multimodal resources includes the material placement of texts, and that old materialities such as pen and paper are still essential. Different linguistic and semiotic resources are used, including resources from academic, business and personal discourse.

    Identifying different registers of digital literacy in virtual learning environments2012In: The Internet and higher education, ISSN 1096-7516, E-ISSN 1873-5525, Vol. 15, no 4, p. 237-246Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper social semiotics, and systemic functional linguistics in particular, are used in order to identify registers of digital literacy in the use of virtual learning environments. The framework of social semiotics provides means to systemize and discuss digital literacy as a linguistic and semiotic issue. The following research question was investigated in the paper: What different registers of digital literacy could be identified when students and teachers communicate and interact in a VLE? The research question was answered by. initially, an application of social semiotics to virtual learning environments, and its relation to the knowledge domains of everyday, specialized and reflexive digital literacy. This application was then further developed, using an analysis of a course specific use of a virtual learning environment in a case study. The study identified discrepancies between the digital literacies of teachers. designers and students. These discrepancies mean that a shared semiotic register was sometimes difficult to maintain. The conclusion is that the designers and teachers as co-designers of virtual learning environments need a better understanding of everyday digital literacy in order to design more sufficient learning environments. The paper shows that digital literacy must be considered as a situated practice, and that it concerns functional and communicative competencies rather than acquiring a set of technical skills.

    Collaboration, reinvented tools and specialist knowledge: Communication professionals' experiences of global health crisis management2024In: Discourse & Communication, ISSN 1750-4813, E-ISSN 1750-4821Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Communication professionals have a paramount role in global crisis. What did they learn during the covid pandemic that could be used in future global crisis? The aim of this article is to identify and analyze strategy changes among communicators in municipalities and how their conceptions of communicated knowledge transformed during the pandemic. Retrospective interviews and textual material are analyzed with a framework of Mediated Discourse Analysis in combination with Legitimation Code Theory. The analysis shows that the work of the communicators was characterized by collaboration with other professional groups and the civil society, and that the complexity and important time aspects during this crisis gave birth to semi-new, reinvented, discursive tools in the shape of text genres. The communicators' conceived relevant knowledge as concept-driven and developed the conception that conveyance of knowledge should be thoroughly planned in a way that takes complexity into account.

    Workplace communication in flux: from discrete languages, text genres and conversations to complex communicative situations2023In: Applied Linguistics Review, ISSN 1868-6303, E-ISSN 1868-6311, Vol. 14, no 4, p. 679-695Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Recently, changes in working life have become a prominent topic in academic researchas well as professional literature and public discussions. It has been recognized thatthe contexts and conditions of work have become more transient and unpredictabledue to global changes and megatrends related to, for example, migration, techno-logical developments, and transforming values and lifestyles as the world becomesincreasingly interconnected through the flows of information, workforces, materialsand ideas (see e.g. Blommaert 2013; Gratton 2011; Sarangi 2011). In light of thistransformation, changing working life can be seen as a cluster of change processes thatinfluence the labour market and workplace organizations in various ways.
