Digitala smågrupper som platser för undervisning : En aktionsforskningsavhandling om religionspedagogik i Svenska kyrkan (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Centered around a reflective narrative recounting the experiences of a participatory action research project into leading online small groups for adults in the Church of Sweden Diocese of Stockholm during 2021 and 2022, the dissertation argues for the need to reconceptualize and reemphasize teaching as an important aspect in Christian religious education. Employing creative non-fiction methods, the dissertation aims to broaden the scope of the initial Online Small Groups project, by inviting readers to join into a “learning journey.” The narrative account is complemented with more traditional forms of analysis that connect experiences from online small groups in the Church of Sweden to similar research from Anglo-Saxon countries, noting especially how notions of community diverge due to different ecclesiological understandings. Insights are then synthesized into eight teaching strategies aimed at communicating actionable knowledge to small group leaders, before noting how the study complements research on Christian religious education and, particularly, the current debate about learning and teaching in the Church of Sweden.

Abstract [sv]

Avhandlingen är centrerad kring en reflekterande berättelse om erfarenheterna från ett deltagande aktionsforskningsprojekt om att leda digitala smågrupper för vuxna i Svenska kyrkans Stockholms stift under 2021 och 2022. Avhandlingen argumenterar för behovet av att rekonceptualisera och betona undervisning som en viktig aspekt i kristen religionspedagogik. Genom att använda skönlitterära metoder syftar avhandlingen till att bredda insikterna från det ursprungliga Online Small Groups-projektet genom att bjuda in läsarna att delta i en “läranderesa.” Den narrativa berättelsen kompletteras med mer traditionella former av analys som kopplar erfarenheter från digitala smågrupper i Svenska kyrkan till liknande forskning från anglosaxiska länder, och noterar särskilt hur uppfattningar om gemenskap skiljer sig åt på grund av olika ecklesiologiska förståelser. Insikterna sammanfattas sedan i åtta undervisningsstrategier som syftar till att förmedla användbar kunskap till smågruppsledare, innan det noteras på vilka sätt studien kompletterar forskning om kristen religionspedagogik och, i synnerhet, den aktuella debatten om lärande och undervisning i Svenska kyrkan.
