Abstract [en]

The aim of this presentation is to develop knowledge about teaching in dance in preschool. What characterise preschool teaching in dance? How can dance education in preschool be understood? Based on the current revisions in the preschool curriculum, physical activity such as dance is important. All children should develop their creative abilities and the ability to express and communicate impressions, thoughts and experiences. Vallberg Roth (2018) points the need to explore how the concept of teaching is used and understood by preschool teachers. Swedish teacher education has been changed with less academic credits in aesthetic subjects (Lindgren & Ericsson, 2013). Previous studies of preschool teachers and students show that they feel insecure in relation to aesthetic subjects e.g. dance and music (Ehrlin, 2014; Lindqvist, 2019). This paper will discuss “teaching” and “didactics” guided by Selander (2017). The aim is to analyse didactics from a broad historical, intellectual and critical understanding of learning. This can help us to understand different theories about education and learning. Within a qualitative research paradigm, the material consists of focus group discussions with preschool teachers in Sweden. Interviews were taped, transcribed and analysed based on a discourse psychological approach. A consent form including information about the project and informants rights was provided to managers and preschool teachers. Written consents were collected from the preschool teachers. Interviews were anonymised. The preschool teachers didactic thinking is central according to high-quality activities. This study provides discussions of teaching quality and competence in dance and bodily learning among preschool teachers.
