Charlotte Silén research group: Pedagogical encounters in the clinic

The core of this research area is to expand the knowledge about learning and teaching in pedagogical encounters in the health care environment. Pedagogical encounters are defined as situations where the learner and the teacher/facilitator/professional meet and interact for the purpose of learning (Silén 2013 and Uljens 2009).The pedagogical encounters always take place in a context influencing the learning and teaching processes and course of events. In this research the context is the clinical environment including also web based learning. The research projects are targeting learning processes related to students, supervisors, professionals and patients.

Some central concepts investigated are:

  • Authenticity
  • Autonomy in learning
  • Thresholds in learning
  • Empowerment
  • Patient safety connected to patients’ learning
  • Professional development.

The projects in the research group are divided in two main fields:

Clinical education

  • Students learning at clinical education wards
  • Self-directed learning in clinical practice
  • Mentorship for students professional development
  • Supervisors role for students in primary health care
  • Learning non-technical skills in anaesthesiology
  • Creating a virtual meeting point for tutors in Primary Healthcare - to develop tutors' skills by using Web2.0 technology
  • Interprofessional learning using virtual patients

Patients learning

  • Children learning from the web
  • Patient learning (breast and prostate cancer)
  • Learning centres for patients
  • Asthma school for children
