  • Innovative Forms of Citizen Participation at the Fringe of the Formal Planning System 

    Nyseth, Torill; Ringholm, Toril Merete; Agger, Annika (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-24)
    In the Nordic countries, we are witnessing a proliferation of novel and more experimental ways of citizen and authority interaction within the field of urban planning and governance. These formats are seen in urban regeneration projects and planning experiments that endorse more inclusive interactions between public authorities and local actors than in the traditional formal hearings. The intention ...

  • To ulike utdanninger for skolens mellomtrinn. Er det samsvar mellom planverk og praksislæreres erfaringer med studentenes kompetanser på 1-7 og 5-10 utdanningene? 

    Karlsen, Solveig; Olufsen, Magne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    I 2010 ble det ved UiT Norges arktiske universitet startet opp et nasjonalt pilotprosjekt (Pilot i Nord) med 5-årige integrerte masterutdanninger for trinn 1-7 og 5-10. I denne kvalitative sammenligningsstudien har vi intervjuet åtte praksislærere på mellomtrinnet (trinn 5-7) med veiledningserfaring fra begge disse utdanningene og undersøkt om de opplever kompetanseforskjeller mellom studentgruppene. ...
  • Dando crédito al Septentrión: Ricla y el naufragio de Pietro Querini en la isla de Røst 

    Davenport, Randi Lise (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2019)
    Este artículo propone una interpretación de la ‘bárbara caritativa’ Ricla como personaje de inspiración tanto, o más, septentrional que ‘americana’. Esta interpretación se basa en una nueva lectura del relato del naufragio del gentilhombre veneciano, Pietro Querini, en la costa norte de Noruega en el año 1431-1432, un relato recogido en el segundo volumen de la muy difundida obra de Giovanni Battista ...
  • Big data in Russian linguistics? Another look at paucal constructions 

    Nesset, Tore (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-05-28)
    With the advent of large web-based corpora, Russian linguistics steps into the era of “big data”. But how useful are large datasets in our field? What are the advantages? Which problems arise? The present study seeks to shed light on these questions based on an investigation of the Russian paucal construction in the RuTenTen corpus, a web-based corpus with more than ten billion words. The focus is ...

  • Examining libraries as public sphere institutions: Mapping questions, methods, theories, findings, and research gaps 

    Vårheim, Andreas; Skare, Roswitha; Lenstra, Noah (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-18)
    It is common in the literature to see libraries characterized as public sphere institutions, but the exact processes by which libraries support and engage in the public sphere remain underexplored. Based on a systematic review of the research literature on libraries as public sphere institutions, this study maps the questions, methods, theories, and findings of those scholars and librarians who have ...
  • Mehrsprachigkeitsdidaktik im norwegischen DaF-Unterricht – der mühsame Weg vom Wissen zur Umsetzung 

    Lindemann, Beate (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04)
    Im norwegischen Lehrplan für Fremdsprachen, der für den Unterricht in allen Fremdsprachen außer Englisch an norwegischen Schulen gilt, wird an mehreren Stellen auf die wichtige Bedeutung des Aspekts „Mehrsprachigkeit“ im Rahmen der Sprachvermittlungsaufgabe des Fremdsprachenunterrichts hingewiesen. Der Lehrplan gilt seit 2006, ist also keineswegs neu. Inwiefern und wie wird dieser Aspekt in der ...
  • Mehrsprachigkeitsdidaktik im frühen DaF-Unterricht in Dänemark und Norwegen – Lehrer- und Schülerperspektiven 

    Lindemann, Beate; Speitz, Heike; Daryai-Hansen, Petra (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04)
    In den skandinavischen Ländern arbeitet man seit vielen Jahren daran, den früheren Start mit 2. Fremdsprachen an den Schulen einzuführen. Seit einer Schulreform im Jahre 2014 wird nun in Dänemark DaF-Unterricht bereits ab der 5. Klasse angeboten. Dies kann als bedeutender sprachenpolitischer Erfolg bewertet werden. Trotz zweier erfolgreicher Pilotprojekte wird in Norwegen die 2. Fremdsprache noch ...
  • Målt fysisk aktivitetsnivå i tre barnehager sommer og vinter

  • Teachers’ Experience in the Subject of Food and Health and the Promotion of Health in Norwegian Lower Secondary Schools 

    Øvrebø, Else Marie (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-02)
    This study describes the teachers' experiences and views regarding the extent to which the subject food and health promotes health in lower secondary schools. The teachers wish to build their teaching on the pupils’ assumptions and references, but they find this problematical because they have little or no knowledge of their pupils. In addition to support from the homes, the teachers point to ...

    Jakobsen, Ingrid K. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    What role does multimodality play in assessment in the English subject in Norway? This article focuses on final written examinations from 2014 to 2018 and investigates the multimodal literacy skills that examinations invite lower secondary school students to demonstrate. Examinations in the English subject are digital and technically open to a rich multimodal practice. Analysis in this article ...
  • The centre–periphery dimension and trust in politicians: the case of Norway 

    Stein, Jonas; Buck, Marcus; Bjørnå, Hilde (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-13)
    Scholars have often studied social, political and economic factors affecting trust. This article considers the relationship between spatial location and trust in politicians. We hypothesise that the centre‒periphery framework developed by Stein Rokkan has explanatory value for the study of trust in politicians. By using multilevel regression analysis on a large-N survey on a crucial case (Norway), ...
  • The local impact of increased numbers of state employees on start-ups in Norway 

    Stein, Jonas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-07-23)
    The purpose of the article is to assess the impact of concentrations of state employees on local growth and development. Local multiplier effect theory suggests that the increased local demand for state employees, especially highly skilled employees, would stimulate the local supply of goods and services, and hence local development. However, other theories of regional development have shown that ...

  • Different outcomes in the acquisition of residual V2 and do-support in three Norwegian-English bilinguals: Cross-linguistic influence, dominance and structural ambiguity 

    Anderssen, Merete; Bentzen, Kristine (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-11-09)
    This paper investigates the acquisition of residual verb second (V2) in three corpora consisting of data from Norwegian-English bilinguals (Emma, Emily and Sunniva) in order to determine to what extent these structures are affected by cross-linguistic influence (CLI) from Norwegian V2. The three girls exhibit three different patterns with regard to the relevant constructions. They are very target-like ...
  • Implicit Affective Rivalry: A Behavioral and fMRI Study Combining Olfactory and Auditory Stimulation 

    Berthold-Losleben, Mark; Habel, Ute; Brehl, Anne-Kathrin; Freiherr, Jessica; Losleben, Katrin; Schneider, Frank; Amunts, Katrin; Kohn, Nils (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-18)
    Aversive odors are highly salient stimuli that serve a protective function. Thus, emotional reactions elicited by negative odors may be hardly influenceable. We aim to elucidate if negative mood induced by negative odors can be modulated automatically by positively valenced stimuli. We included 32 healthy participants (16 men) in an fMRI design combining aversive and neutral olfactory stimuli with ...
