On successful completion of the course, the candidate:
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 knowledges. These new approaches also consider an awareness of contexts as being central to knowledge development as well in research as in clinical settings.
The primary focus will be on different perspectives and traditions of research-, experience- and theoretical based knowledges in dialogical and collaborative practices, the development of dialogical and collaborative practices in research and clinical work, and the methodological and scientific contribution of the candidate to systematizing and developing different areas of dialogical and collaborative practices in health sciences. Relationships between differing views in ontology, epistemology and methodology, and organizational and political frameworks will also be explored. The content above will be disseminated via the following contexts and topics:
