The University of Agder, Kristiansand, Norway proudly offers a new opportunity to study a PhD course:
Dialogical and collaborative practices – ontology, epistemology and methodology (5 ECTS) which will be held December 2nd – 5th.

Content: This course unit is particularly concerned with the emergence of dialogical and collaborative concepts and perspectives as a basis of different practices in clinical work and research within the health sciences. A central focus will be on new understandings and paradigms of dialogical and collaborative practices and their implications for mainstream policies, services, research, clinical practices and professions. What distinguishes the philosophies and practices of dialogical and collaborative approaches is that they have a range of knowledge sources based in research, experience based and theoretical knowledge. These new approaches also consider an awareness of contexts as being central to knowledge development as well in research as in clinical settings.

Entry requirements: Master’s degree (or the equivalent). The participants must be enrolled as a Ph.D. student at a relevant PhD programme.

Prerequisites: Basic knowledge about research in dialogical and collaborative practices is required.

Course leaders are:

Tore Dag Bøe, Associate Professor, University of Agder

Bengt Karlsson, Professor, University of South-Eastern Norway.

The course is given in English.
