Abstract [en]

Within the phenomenographic tradition the object of learning depicts the capability that is to be learned by the learner (Marton &Booth, 1997). The object of learning can be defined by its critical aspects, since they are seen as necessary for the learner to discern in order to learn. The aim of this paper is to discuss the nature of the object of learning by investigating how its meaning can change as it is explored by teachers. We analyzed seven recorded meetings in which four teachers and a researcher discussed the nature of the object of learning while they were planning, analyzing and revising a lesson. We found that the meaning of the critical aspects identified changed for the teachers due to the discussion and analysis of the lessons and thereby the meaning of the object of learning changed also. From at first being defined, they later become refined and specified as the teachers acquired deeper understanding of the object of learning. Distinctions were made to separate out what was of significance for the object of learning and what is not (the objects external horizon). Furthermore, an exploration by the teachers was made of how different aspects relate to each other (the objects internal horizon). The findings indicate that qualitative differences in teachers’ experience of the object of learning emerge through the collaborative investigation.
