Studenteropgave: Fagmodulprojekt


This study examines the challenges that males who studies to become a child care worker experience in their internships and how to meet these challenges with communication. The main empirical source is an one hour interview with two male students who function as representatives for the entirety. The paper uses Sense-Making theory by Brenda Dervin as the main factor to identifying the students challenges and sense making. Through our analysis we have placed the participants sense making in the following categories: Gender, hierarchy, personal interests, permanent employees & internships and actions. Furthermore, we have gotten our thesis confirmed; that the male students are under a constant suspicion in their internships - that they are a potential pedophile. The male students are getting discriminated and it seems like all responsibility is getting placed on them. The analysis and the categories have given us knowledge which we can use in a strategic aspect. Our discussion opens for the different varieties of communication and targets we can aim at such as the students themselves, the different institutions, the parents or maybe we ought to aim our communication at society as a mass communication.
