Margaretha Ekebergh is senior professor in caring science at University of Borås. She has illuminated learning and reflection in health care education and caring practice. Her research has generated a theory of learning based in lifeworld philosophy and caring science; ”Learning encounters in caring contexts” which has three main concepts: lifeworld, narrative, reflection. From this theoretical viewpoint, her presentation will illuminate the importance of reflective learning and caring. Her mission is also to clarify the intertwining of learning and caring and how this intertwining process strengthens in caring practice.
Title of the presentation: The interaction between learning and caring – challenges and possibilities
