A Poststructuralist View on Student’s Project Groups: Possibilities and Limitations

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt


The aim of this paper is to demonstrate how post structuralism and social constructionism can contribute to empirical research on groups in PBL. The paper outlines the analytical complex and shows, through empirical examples, the potentials and limitations of this perspective as an alternative to traditional group psychology. While the potentials of post structuralism and social constructionism as an analytical complex seems to be the endeavor for relentlessly critique, the limitations is the ‘empty subject’ and the avoidance of any kind of normativity that leave no guidance for practice. Though both limitations raises serious problems for the practitioner, I intend to argue that the potentials of the analytical perspective are far more important than the challenges when it comes to social psychological research in groups in PBL.
