Topic: From deep and surface approaches to a mechanism of learning – A brief account of phenomenography and variation theory

Brief Description: The notion of deep and surface approaches to learning had a profound impact on higher education some 40 years ago. It was also the origin of the phenomenography research tradition, which was later complemented with variation theory. The core of the research tradition, primarily articulated by Ference Marton, has been characterised by distinctive results and has successively undergone shifts in focus, from first investigating qualitatively different ways in which students perceive phenomena in the world, on epistemological grounds inspired by phenomenology, to developing a model of learning predicating variation as the basic mechanism of learning, and then asking questions pertaining to how variation necessary to discern by the learner may be facilitated in the classroom and by the teacher.

In this talk Åke will give an account for and a perspective on how the early research, which in many ways took a common sense-approach to why people understood the same thing differently, ended up making claims of what are necessary conditions of learning, and suggesting on empirical basis how teaching may be arranged to facilitate learning that makes a difference.
