    Editorial: "I love the smell of NAPLAN in the morning"2013In: Issues in educational research, ISSN 0313-7155, Vol. 23, no 3, ii-iii p.Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    NAPLAN (The National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy) is an annual Australia-wide testing regime in years 3, 5 7 and 9. It is one of a number of national and international testing schemes currently in operation. This issue of the journal is also being published in the context of an emerging National Curriculum in Australia. At such times, and at all times, it seems, we tend to focus on what we want our students to know and be able to do at the end of a certain period or learning experience. These are fine quest(ion)s. A more fundamental question, one that risks being lost in the mix of this, however, is, 'what kind of people would we like our students to be at the end of and as a result of their learning-time with us, their teachers?'

    Abstract

    Title: Media and Information Literacy (MIL) in kindergarten: A phenomenological study of preschool teachers' perceptions, competencies and preconditions for the introduction of media information literacy (MIL) in preschool.

    Author: Paramaporn Erdtman

    Instructor: Janne Kontio

    Autumn Term 2016

    Various studies have shown that there has been a great increase in the use of digital media for children of all ages, especially children of preschool age. A need for skills and knowledge in how we as educators should be able to help children manage digital media and information has become essential. In 2011, UNESCO presented the concept of media information literacy or MIL, which is a collective concept of media literacy and information literacy in a network society. According to state media council, MIL is a tool to enhance understanding and critical abilities and to manage the problems that will arise in everyday media. Such skills are essential in order for children to be able to exercise both their rights and their responsibilities in a democratic society. The purpose of this study is to examine the different conditions that exist amongst pre-school teachers which will help in introducing media - information literacy in the preschool context. The study is based on a quantitative method, i.e. survey and qualitative interviews. The study is aimed toward preschool teachers who have worked with digital tools in preschool. The result shows that there are positive opportunities for working with MIL in preschool. Preschool teachers have some understanding of the concepts of media and information literacy are about. Preschool teachers consider themselves to have the most of the important skills in order to bring MIL into the preschool. The result also indicates that children need more opportunities to create and communicate in intercultural dialogues and critical discussions with the help of digital media. Early childhood educators approach to children's use of digital media and information is a prerequisite to MIL's implementation in preschool. Early childhood educators are in favor of working with MIL's main points which they have already implemented in the preschool.

    Imperatives of Internationalizing Higher Education in the European North2015In: ECER 2015 - the European Conference on Educational Research: WERA Focal Meeting / [ed] Prof. Vanessa Andreotti, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this presentation we engage with the issues on international higher education imperatives in response to recent educational reforms and their implications for scholarship in the region of northern Europe. These issues bring forth components of an ongoing large comparative research project on ethical internationalization involving 20 universities across the globe (EIHE, 2015) funded by the Academy of Finland. 

    Central to the theme are perspectives on how internationalization has been shaped. Historical accounts of the internationalisation of HE have been framed by organizational and system level perspectives (King, Marginson, & Naidoo, 2013) and are closely linked to economical-political-policy demands. In the past, focus was placed on academic and organizational climates and cultures, viewing education primarily from an administrative perspective, linked to economy, politics and policy. Thus, the social role of universities was scrutinized merely in relation to its external global environment, that is, in terms of its impact on ‘market competition’. Transnational corporations have over time exerted significant control that rise above national borders (King, Marginson & Naidoo, 2013) forcing universities to operate within the knowledge-based economy. Marginson (2009) has discussed these escalating developments in terms of status competition driven by neo-liberal political developments causing a reduction in state funding and demanding public universities to become increasingly self-supporting, financially.

    The rapidly escalating international education market has imposed unprecedented pedagogical demands on university teachers' academic professionalism and identity (Hellstén & Reid, 2008; Ryan, 2013; Trahar, 2011). Concurrently, there has been anxiety about lowering academic standards caused by a perceived fragmentation in the field (Ninnes & Hellstén, 2005) which may derive from an epistemic discord about internationalized curriculum policy, employability and conceptualizations about ethics (Andreotti, 2013).

    In this presentation we focus on current imperatives steering international policy and practice and related global, cultural and social imaginaries, by providing a sampling of commentary from teaching spaces in international education contexts. The presentation shows examples of interim EIHE project data collected from the northern EU region. In the presentation we involve the audience in discussing implications for future progression on the issues that might be central to a forming of (ethical) international communities of (educational) practice.

    Building Culturally Responsive Academic Research Communities: Transcending boundaries or bordering ontologies?2015In: Local Meets Global Conference: Keynote address. / [ed] Dr. Elina Lehtomäki, 2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this keynote address, I am going to address the issues of culture as a central agency for contemporary change, by raising a number of meaningful questions related to responsive cultural encounters in education. Culture is an issue close to the heart of contemporary education, yet there seems to be both a need, as well as some fatigue in the education community, over the debates about the place of culture in education.

    At the same time, we are witnessing a world climate that is currently urging the global community to come up with solutions to a number of very complex issues which in many ways are larger than ourselves. I will in this talk invite us to think about the anatomy of culture, as it may contain the components of intentional actions, our practices, and the functions of our work, that bring change through the action and processes in cultural know-how. I will attempt at untangling some of these issues, by drawing on the experiences of our international research community.

    Re-imagining International Communities of Scholars: from (w)here to possible futures?: Keynote address.2015In: Rethinking Internationalisation in Higher Education: Methodological and Conceptual Challenges. / [ed] Prof Sue Robson, 2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    As an outcome of globalization, international education is facing both quantitative and qualitative future challenges. Quantitatively, global student cross-border mobility has doubled in the first decade of the 21st century and is expected to double in the decade ahead according to OECD predictions (2013). This calls for swift qualitative adaptation across the levels of the higher education sector in Europe and elsewhere in order to enable universities to adequately meet changing societal needs on the one hand and perceptively respond to globalization demands on the other.

    Concurrently, international education as a social process is in need of regeneration and coherence.  Research stresses further socially accountable and critical approaches to pedagogical investigations on international student care, intercultural competencies and transnational literacies, cross-cultural curriculum innovation, pedagogy and practice, intercultural integration and new technologies, policy documentation and management which demand research-informed educational approaches by bridging interdisciplinary academic communities of scholars. This presentation will address these issues from the perspective of progressing international aspects of higher education into possible futures.

    International education imperatives and the era of ethical practice: a Swedish higher education case study example.2014In: CONGRESS2014: The Canadian Society for the Study of Education / [ed] Jane Koustas, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As internationalization of higher education (HE) reaches a forty-year trajectory point, its community of scholars recognize an ever present fragmentation in the field. Four decades of worldwide conceptual and pedagogical incentives have not yielded consensus about successful policy to practice implementation (Ninnes & Hellstén, 2005), nor of its impact upon intercultural understanding (Marginson & Sawir, 2012) or language gains (Grin, 2012). Indeed, the overall advantages of internationalization as a measure of coercive responsiveness to the social justice and civic needs imposed by globalization, remain uncertain.  The outcome of such to date is an uneven distribution of HE provisions on account of the recent world economic crises. The responsiveness of international higher education (HE) to current global flows in employability, mobility and competitiveness has been articulated in national, regional and local level policy guidelines over the past decades. The Swedish government has recently formulated international dimensions in public HE policy, as a need to inform intercultural diversity and innovation, and as a crucial feature of academic provision in the 21st Century (HSV, 2008; European Unit, 2000; Minister of Education, Research and Culture, 2005). One consensus account is a recent collaborative forum initiated by the Swedish Research Council (VR), introducing international mobility as an Action plan strategy (VR, 2012). At the public policy level however, internationalization remains caught in the conflict between the degree of internationalization and academic quality, breaking the assumption that merely having international policies in place provides for higher academic excellence.  The ethical element of implementation of international policies remains a valid imperative, as addressed in the current contributions in the collection of this symposium. This paper reports one aspect of a Swedish case study, as based on survey data from one public HE institution. Surveys were collected from students in three academic discipline areas, education, humanities and sciences on the responses of the international education system and upon the processes affecting its actors. The survey data is discussed from the perspective of identifying processes that provide alternatives to profit-seeking, unethical, and market driven internationalization approaches, and in relation to the body of the larger international empirical research consortium data framework.

    Abstract [en]

    Education is about making a difference in the lives of those who experience its interactions as a social justice project of modern democracy. It is intended to encourage the free exploration of ideas and the development of creativity. Quality education needs the underpinning of access to good teaching, challenging curriculum and engaged learning. The articles in this issue demonstrate some of the ways researchers approach these issues.

    My Way to You: How to Make Room for Transformative Communication in Intercultural Education2016In: Journal of Philosophy of Education, ISSN 0309-8249, E-ISSN 1467-9752, Vol. 50, no 2, 233-245 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As populations around the globe become increasingly culturally diverse, just inter-personal relations seem dependent on our ability to find new ways of communicating with people from other cultures whose values and linguistic strategies may vary from our own cultural practices. Hence, in the increasing body of literature on intercultural education, intercultural education means helping students to acquire the right language and communication skills for enabling mutual understanding and transformation between cultures. However, several post-colonial scholars have pointed out that there is a tendency to homogenise differences and neglect relations of power and the culturally untranslatable in the Western conception of language. This paper explores some implications of the post-colonial critique of intercultural education by following Luce Irigaray's writings on language and communication. Taking as its point of departure the Western ‘common sense’ conception of language as an instrument for communication and transfer of information, the paper first elaborates on the importance of exploring new ways of relating to language if we want to speak and listen to the other as other. It then offers a close reading of Martin Heidegger's existential analysis of the nature of language as Saying-Sowing and of Irigaray's response as she develops it in two of her later works. By way of conclusion the paper discusses how a more poetic and attentive listening could open up for a transformative and non-hierarchical communication in difference, and considers what implications this has for the promotion of social justice and pluralism in intercultural education.

    Representational and Territorial Economies in Global Citizenship Education: Welcoming the Other at the Limit of Cosmopolitan Hospitality2013In: Social Theory and Education Research Volume II / [ed] Mark Murphy, Sage Publications, 2013Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I argue that any success a discourse on cosmopolitan hospitality might have in global citizenship education depends on how it deals with its own limits, and I propose a way of responding to these limits that takes the cosmopolitan commitment to openness to the other seriously. Following Jacques Derrida, my point is that to teach global citizenship on the basis that we already can know who the other is risks counting some persons ‘in’ while leaving others ‘out’, which forecloses the possibility of welcoming something new and unforeseen at the limit of our cosmopolitan selves.

    En reformerad lärare: Konstruktionen av en professionell och betygssättande lärare i skolpolitik och skolpraktik2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This doctoral thesis investigates the interrelatedness between school policy and practice. In the thesis, the construction of “the teacher” is analysed in school policy documents and teacher interviews. I am particularly interested in the relation between school policy and school practice in light of the two latest curriculum reforms 1994 and 2011 and the teacher accreditation registration reform of 2011. The analysis focuses on two topics: grading and the professional teacher. In fact, an analytic link is made between the emphasis on grading and the discursive construction of the teacher in Swedish education policy. The theoretical framework is positioned within institutional theory within which I combine curriculum theory and the sociological new institutionalism with discourse theory. The analyses of policy documents reveals three types of different discursive constructions of “the teacher”. In the period of deregulation and decentralization, a professional teacher is constructed and the need for an autonomous teacher for school quality is expressed. By the 1990s -2000s an unprofessional grading teacher is constructed. In the period signifying the teacher accreditation and registration reform, a quality assured teacher is constructed. It is a teacher who is formally authorized and in need of continuing evaluation. In the focus groups interviews teachers constructs two types of professionalism. One is in line with the professionalism articulated in the policy texts and is about control and formal regulation and the other is about autonomy. Furthermore, the teachers relate to grading and teachers' ability to act in accordance with their overall teaching assignment. Grading were often constructed opposed to teaching. Demands for documentation, quality reports or the requirement of teacher accreditation is described as institutional practices defined from above. These practices make it difficult for teachers to complete their teaching assignments. The study indicates that teachers' ability to operate in an increasingly regulatory schooling culture has, through the types of requirements for transparency in teachers’ work, resulted in the decline of autonomy in their professional practice.

    Values in Political Science Students’ Contextualizations of Nationalism2015In: Journal of Political Science Education, ISSN 1551-2169, Vol. 11, no 2, 126-140 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent research on conceptual change has argued that it is insufficient to assume that prior knowledge is the only aspect relevant in order to explain the conceptual change process. In addition, “warm constructs” such as emotions, epistemological beliefs, and values have been proposed to play a determinative role. In this study, we aim to further the understanding of the qualitative aspects of such constructs. By investigating how 20 science students interpret Michael Billig’s critical theory of nationalism in written exam papers, we explore how values are involved in university students’ meaning making of nationalism. The results indicate that students in different ways bring alternative values, such as togetherness, pride, and personal identity, in their reasoning, and these become a significant aspect of their meaning making in political science. This suggests that the students enter the classroom with their own ideas and principles of what is “good” or “right” when “practicing political science.” The study thus provides an example of how conceptual change involves accepting prescriptions of a certain intellectual activity.

    Discplacing identity – placing aesthetics: early childhood literacy in a globalized world2016In: Discourse. Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, ISSN 0159-6306, E-ISSN 1469-3739, Vol. 37, no 5, 717-738 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    ‘How to give brain and body to the multiple pack that we already are or are becoming: how, in other words, are we to make sensible (auditory, visually and affectively) the time before “I think” and “We think” that we cannot plan, control or know, but simply experiment with, which is the “time of the city” and nothing else?’ (Rajchman, 2010, p. 39) These powerful words constitute the starting point for this article that argues that, within the context of early childhood literacy in a globalized and ‘multicultural’ world, we need to experiment with new ways of understanding identity and language through amalgamating early childhood pedagogy and didactics with aesthetics. Such an endeavour needs to take place beyond ‘the indignity of speaking for the other’ (Deleuze, 2004, p. 208) and beyond the constructed categories that have been attributed to children in the name of one or another minority group. Through vivid examples and theoretical movements taking place within the research project ‘The Magic of Language’ we propose to shift focus – from the identifying and categorizing of individuals, as well as from the epistemological violence performed in the name of recognition and linguistic representation – to aesthetic experimentation and to the place of experiments. A ‘time of the city’ is also a ‘time of the place’ and in this article we are arguing for the importance of aesthetic experimenting with that place.

    Perspectives of teacher education students on global citizenship: implications for ethical internationalisation2015In: NERA 2015 - Marketisation and Differentiation in Education: Abstract book, 2015, 248-249 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Globalization has meant that universities are under increased pressure to internationalize through mobility, research partnerships, and internationalised programing. Global citizenship is an increasingly mainstream term being used by the UN and OECD regarding education for the 21st century, yet research about its conceptualization in higher education comes largely from English-speaking contexts (e.g. Jorgenson & Shultz, 2012). This paper presents a piece of an inter-disciplinary, international mixed-methods research project funded through the Academy of Finland and involving 20 universities in 10 countries. It responds to concerns that current economic crises have resulted in an intensification of those internationalization policies in universities that prioritize profit-seeking over those that prioritize ethical alternatives (Khoo, 2011). Drawing on critical and post/de-colonial theories (e.g. Andreotti, 2009), the project considers how, when left unchecked, internationalisation is normalized so as to re-direct social and political values such as global citizenship and social responsibility towards economic values thereby reproducing ideals of exceptionalism, entitlement, and (market) expansionism (Rhoads & Szelényi, 2010); and denying reproduction of systems of inequities (King, Marginson, & Naidoo, 2013; Rizvi, 2007). Selecting social cartography as a method to analyze the findings, the project aims to create a socially accountable map of shifting imaginaries of higher education as expressed in trends in internationalization (Paulston, 1999). In this paper, we focus on imaginaries of global citizenship. We will present a heuristic co-created by project partners and use it to analyze responses from teacher-education students studying in two Nordic universities, focusing on two specific survey questions: Do you see yourself as a global citizen? How do you think global citizens should think, relate and/or act in the world? The heuristic consists of three discursive orientations—neoliberal, liberal and critical—and four interfaces—neoliberal-liberal, liberal-critical, critical-neoliberal, and all four. Interfaces indicate where signifiers are deployed with multiple meanings. The mapping helps to identify dominant discourses, articulating where there are foreclosures of and possibilities for an ethical approach. The project contributes data and frameworks for understanding existing possibilities. By making discursive configurations and interfaces jointly intelligible, processes in higher education can be more informed by ethically oriented versions of international education.

    Editorial 23(1): Education in the 21st century2013In: Issues in educational research, ISSN 0313-7155, Vol. 23, no 1, ii-iv p.Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Education in the twenty-first century is about equipping students of all ages "to compete in the global economy on knowledge and innovation ... take advantage of opportunity and ... face challenges of this era with confidence" (Melbourne Declaration, 2008, p. 13). There is a strong commitment in Australia, as well as elsewhere, from Federal and State levels on developing reciprocal partnerships with low socio-economic and Indigenous communities. These commitments emerge in documents such as the Bradley Report and the MCEEDYA four year plan. The challenge is for education systems to respond comprehensively to government plans.

    Minorías nacionales, conciencia nacional y proceso de aprendizaje intercultural entre docentes en formación en Suecia2015In: Revista de Educación, ISSN 1853-1318, no 8, 101-116 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A period of nationalism during 200 years has led to a predominant image of Sweden as a cultural, religious and linguistic homogenous country. Even though this historical homogeneity has often been emphasized, it is a myth that can be deconstructed. Like most other nations, Sweden has always had a diverse population. Since the year 2000, Sweden has recognised the Samis, Tornedalers, Swedish Finns, Roma, and Jews as official national minorities in the country. This paper discusses how an intercultural approach in a course for student teachers can challenge hegemonic monocultural and monolingual discourses of national self-awareness in the master narrative of the country, and how an inclusive discourse of a “democratic credo” in relation to the minorities, can develop among the student teachers.

    Romsk brobyggarutbildning med inriktning mot skolan 2012-2015: Högre utbildning, social mobilitet och interkulturellt kapital2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hösten 2012 fick Södertörns högskola och vi författare till föreliggande studie, Christina Rodell Olgaç och Angelina DimiterTaikon, i uppdrag av Skolverket att innan årets slut utveckla och starta en tvåårig romsk brobyggarutbildning med inriktning mot skolan, en utbildning som avslutades i juni 2015. Utbildningen kom att omfatta 15 romska brobyggare tillhörande olika romska grupper. Dessa var verksamma främst inom skolan i fyra av de fem pilotkommunerna, Luleå, Linköping, Göteborg och Helsingborg, som 2012 utsågs inom ramen för den dåvarande regeringens strategi för romsk inkludering åren 2012-2032. Den femte pilotkommunen Malmö valde att inte delta i just denna utbildningssatsning. Brobyggarna anställdes av kommunerna på heltid med femtio procent av tiden avsatt för brobyggarutbildningen. Utbildningen ägde rum på Södertörns högskola under två och en halv dag i månaden under fyra terminer med 7,5 högskolepoäng per termin, sammanlagt 30 högskolepoäng, motsvarande 25 procents heltidsstudier. Det övergripande syftet med denna studie är att utifrån ett interkulturellt pedagogiskt perspektiv och ur ett lärarperspektiv beskriva och analysera erfarenheter av just denna romska brobyggarutbildning med inriktning mot förskola, förskoleklass och grundskola. De frågor som studien främst undersöker gäller:

    Vilka innehållsmässiga och pedagogiska överväganden har funnits bakom brobyggarutbildningen?

    Vilka svårigheter och/eller möjligheter samt konsekvenser kan en högskoleutbildning få för en romsk brobyggare?

    Vilka pedagogiska lärdomar kan vi dra av erfarenheterna från utbildningen och implikationer av dessa lärdomar?

    Health Risks in the Home: Children and Young People's Accounts2016In: Families, Intergenerationality, and Peer Group Relations / [ed] Punch, Samantha; Vanderbeck, Robert; Skelton, Tracey, Singapore: Springer, 2016, 1-18 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Depending on definition and academic discipline, home can refer to a place, a space, a feeling, or certain practices. House and home are often conflated, but the physical dwelling is only one dimension. Home can be shorthand for an ideal and comfortable haven but is also recognized, by feminist researchers for example, as a place where gender and age represent key dimensions for how members of a household view the meaning of home (Saunders and Williams 1988). Home is therefore understood as a multidimensional concept (see Mallet 2004 for a review). In this chapter we discuss where children and young people localize risks, as well as how they manage risks in different settings with reference to the home in particular. Following a brief review of children and young people's understandings and management of risk in different settings, this chapter draws on two case studies involving health risks in everyday life. The case studies involve children and young people from Scotland who live with parents who smoke and those from Sweden who have a food allergy. These cases are then discussed in relation to the wider literature to illuminate issues such as gender, spatial risk management, and child–parent relations within the home.

    "Den som skriker högst blir hörd": En kritisk analys av gymnasieelevers politiska dialog2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The focus of this essay is the civic engagement of Swedish upper secondary school students. In light of recent studies showing Swedish youth to be less politically engaged in comparison to other countries, and young adults as underrepresented in representative politics, a divide can be seen between the political world of the adult and the political world of youth. This essay aims to collect political experiences of young people, through the use of focus group discussions, in order to better understand the political interest of students as well as the schools work with civic engagement from a student point of view. By observing the political discussions of students through a theoretical lens of critical pedagogy as expressed by Peter McLaren and Paulo Freire, the purpose of the essay is to increase understanding of young peoples political praxis and of how they engage in politics at school. The main results of the essay indicate that students political focus is not primarily on issues of class and that the students express an individualized form of political activism. Furthermore the results indicate that students are able to participate in school decision making and that they are allowed to be political in a school setting but that political discussion is far from common in their school work.

    Abstract [en]

    Potentially life-threatening food allergies are increasing among children in the Western world. Informed by childhood studies, this article explores young people's management of food allergy risk and highlights their agency in relation to food, eating and place. Drawing on individual interviews with 10 young people who took part in a larger multi-method study of young people's experiences of food allergies, the findings demonstrate that the management of health risks means, to some extent, trying to control the uncontrollable. A reaction can occur at any time and to experience a severe reaction entails a temporarily loss of control. The strategies the young people develop to avoid allergic reactions can be understood both as responses to this uncertainty and as manifestations of their agency. Their risk experiences vary with place; at school and in other public places they face social as well as health risks. What we see is not agency as a voluntary choice but that young people with food allergies experience tensions between their own competence to manage different types of risks and their dependence on others to adjust to their needs. Thus, the relational aspects of young people's agency come to the fore.

    Förmedling och förankring i organisationers värdegrundsarbete: En intervjustudie ur ett sociokulturellt perspektiv2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The study has aimed to investigate how Human Resources (HR) and management are working to mediate and anchor values in organizations. I have chosen to apply a socio-cultural perspective with the help of artifacts and mediating tools. The issues researched are; (i) “How do organizations mediate and anchor common values, and how does this affect the work with values?”, and (ii) “How can mediation and anchoring in organizations be understood from a socio-cultural perspective, focusing on artifacts and mediating tools?”.I have via e-mail interviewed four people working with HR in four different organizations. When analyzing the empirical data, I have been inspired by phenomenographic analysis selecting and focusing on important concepts, similarities, and differences in the responses from the informants.

    Within the socio-cultural perspective, the key aspects are communication and, above all, language. Artifacts and mediating tools may be considered intellectual or physical tools that we develop together with others through our thoughts and language. Values in organizations can be regarded as one such artifact or tool. The informants in the study consider work on values being a successful way to control and guide its organizations, particularly noting the importance of participation and commitment of all employees. Further, an important factor for the work on values to be overall successful, the work needs to be established and secured at all stages and in all processes. For a clear and interpretive leadership to build trust among the employees, decisions need to be based on a designed value system.

    With the socio-cultural perspective and artifacts and mediating tools, communication and knowledge appeared to be of great importance, which strengthens the thesis that mediating and anchoring is a prerequisite for the work on values to be meaningful. The intellectual tools provide a way to manage and control through language, and relating to values is a prerequisite to be part of an organization.
