The concept of proven experience as a tool for understanding, developing and generalising teachers’ pedagogical work
Umeå University, Faculty of Science and Technology, Department of Science and Mathematics Education. (UMSER)
2019 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation with published abstract (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This theoretical paper elaborates on the concept of “proven experience” (beprövad erfarenhet) that recently came into focus within the Swedish educational system. Based on a systematic study of international research literature it is argued that proven experience can be interpreted as a combination of the terms “evidence based teaching” and “teacher professional inquiry”, which are broadly used in English language educational discourse.

A four level theoretical model is suggested for interpreting and instrumentalising the term proven experience in education. The model is based on the inverted version of Miller’s (1990) model, which was used for the analysis of practical knowledge in medical education. The suggested model correlates ontologically with historical forms of knowledge genesis starting with instrumental knowledge and culminating in theoretical knowledge. Josefson (2005) defined the concept of proven experience as: “experience critically proven through theoretical reflection”. This definition appears to better correspond to the suggested model than the interpretations of the concept provided by the Swedish National Education Agency (Skolverket, 2012).

The provided theoretical model for analysing proven experience could be used as a tool for understanding and generalising teaching experience at different educational levels.
