Treated like a Queen

Finally, I'm here... here in Leicester. I've been preparing for this approximately 1,5 year. Constantly, I have to pinch my arm and tell myself that this is actually happening. Today is the first course day for me at the University of Leicester. I will be studying "Quality and Quality Improvement in Healthcare" this autumn. The... Continue Reading →

Untapped possibilities

What if I, as a teacher, took a step back in order to prop the students to take steps forward...? Forward, towards learning and learning techniques for life. I wonder if it's even possible to do that with herds of students and so little time for each and everyone. Does it all comes down to... Continue Reading →

Organic feeling

Everything has come to an end... After participating in the course "Cultural awareness in health and social research", I would hereby like to declare myself as being cultural aware! This course have for sure given me whole new perspectives. It doesn't make sense, but the new perspectives and the feeling I have about it is... Continue Reading →

Moving beyond a colorblind perspective

Here´s another reflection regarding the course I participate in about cultural awareness. I believe that the current paradigm in Sweden in some ways are built upon those early psychological research that is described in the article of Awad et al. (2016).

I found peer-reviewed articles from the... Continue Reading →

Dangerously tangled

Right now, I aim to enhance my PhD project plan and in this work I'm desperately seeking structure. I have lots and lots of articles (and they're continuously increasing), on my desk, in my backpack, on the toilet, on the bedside table, even in my laundry. They're possibly everywhere - all over the place. Emily... Continue Reading →

Vulnerable

According to me, as a Swede, vulnerable and especially vulnerability is kind of difficult to pronounce. It´s like there´s too many vowels way back in my throat... I have to concentrate hard to get it right. The last days I´ve been concentrating hard, really hard. My first deadline was today and in agreement with my supervisors I... Continue Reading →

Cognitive process

Sometimes it helps to make a bad joke out of those odd moments in life. At the interview (when I applied to become a PhD student) one associate professor asked me a question and it has haunt me ever since.   Also me: OMG, I don´t even understand the question! But I do have questions -... Continue Reading →
