Kunskapsteoretisk praktik 2: Att skapa undervisning av forskning, 7,5 hp


The course syllabus has been established 2015-05-20 by the Head of the
Department, Valand Academy. Department responsible: Valand Academy


The course is one of the four konstnärlig gestaltning / artistic practices research orientation courses under the general heading of “epistemic practices” that are offered to the doctoral students at Valand Academy. Epistemic Practices courses provide an opportunity to learn about and perform within the specific framework of epistemological and research debate within, and with respect to, contemporary artistic and literary
practices. The course is based on a series of monthly seminars and workshops at which the doctoral students present work in progress, respond to the work of peers, participate in specific skills workshops, and plan future programmes of guest researcher talks and events. The emphasis in Epistemic Practices Seminar Series 2 is on the development of pedagogy based in the research practice and collaborative realisation of research events.

Entry requirements

Participants are required to have been admitted to third-cycle education at Valand Academy. If place is available, also doctoral students admitted at other departments at the University of Gothenburg or elsewhere can be participating.


The course – delivered through English – is a research seminar and workshop series providing a context for in-depth discussion of individual project work as it develops, and providing an opportunity to learn the protocols of working within a peer-community of early stage researchers.

Learning outcomes

After completing the course the student will be able to

Knowledge and understanding
• demonstrate an ability to discern the pedagogical potentials within their own research practice
• demonstrate an ability to articulate the specificity of the individual research project with wid-er discursive domains and more generalised knowledge contexts

Competence and skills
• demonstrate collaborative competencies in research event conceptualisation and delivery as evidenced in the team-based realisation of seminar-derived output(s) with peers.
• demonstrate the ability to produce innovative teaching and learning provision informed by ‘live’ research and evidenced through appropriate documentation

Judgement and approach
• demonstrate the ability to identify and critically formulate the difference between research and education practices with reference to their primary research material
• demonstrate the ability to evaluate, and give critical feedback to, the research pedagogical models developed and implemented by peers

Required reading

See separately reading list (established no later than six weeks before the course).


Written submission (unsupervised).
Oral presentation (supervised).

Oral presentation and response will be required in each of the monthly doctoral seminars as part of the assessment process, thus presence is required. A final presentation will be required where the doctoral student discloses their contribution to a collaboratively real-ised research event/guest speaker programme.

Two written submissions are required for presentation at the end of each Semester. At the last seminar of the first semester of study the doctoral student will provide a short paper critically describing the pedagogical potentials within the primary research project (typi-cally 1000 to 1,500 words). At the last seminar of the second semester of study the doc-toral student will provide a course documentation based upon a pedagogical development of their research practice.

Grading scale

The course is graded with either of the grades Pass and Fail. In order to obtain Pass the doctoral student can, through the established tasks, show that the skills outlined in the course content and its goal statements are reached.

Course evaluation

The course is evaluated in written form. This is complemented by a meeting after the course where the doctoral students and the course leader gather for joint evaluation and discussion.

Additional information

The teaching is in English.
