Abstract [en]

This study focuses on historical reenactment, and the informal learning that takes place within that subculture. Through observations during events, and informal semi-structured interviews I have tried to identify some of the aspects that contribute to the motivation to learn that is prominent within the historical reenactment community. Why do people choose to learn things that they do not have to? What can I learn from that, and use to improve my own teaching? The study finds that some of the key facors for the motivation to learn is: having a social context that gives feedback and encouragement, beeing able to get practical use out of the knowledge you try to obtain, feeling satisfied with your own work, and having an enthusiastic teacher who can capture your curiosity.

 

The study also includes photographic works that aim to show some of the informal learning that takes place within the historical reenactment community. The purpose is also to initiate thoughts and discussions concerning informal learning and learning processes in general. Along with the photographs there are sounds taken from the interviews made during the study. The people heard give their perspective on the motivation to learn. Both photographs and sound were displayed in the Vårutställning at Konstfack.

 

Lastly I put forward some suggestions as to how teaching might be improved in order to help students feel more motivated to learn.
