Under denna vecka har vi tagit markkadetterna från Karlberg ut till Livgardet för att genomföra en kurs i Taktisk Tillämpning där andraårskadetterna får möjlighet att testa det de lärt sig teoretiskt i praktiken. På bilderna till höger ser ni exempel på både hur kursansvarig planerar dagens övningar, hur detta omsätts av kadetterna när de taktiserar, planerar och ger order samt därefter genomför det de satt sig ut att göra.
New article on Practical Examination and the Examination of Practice when teaching war studies to cadets and officers (and others) in The Royal Swedish Academy of War Sciences Proceedings and Journal. In Swedish, but if interested send a message.
The ability to lead armed combat is central to an officer. It is clear that the military professionis about more than possessing theoretical knowledge. Thus, in order to achieve an educationalprogram that includes the skills and abilities of the military profession there is a need to lookbeyond traditional written examination and apply practical examination in various forms.In this article we argue that while all practice can and should be examined through practicalexamination, not everything that is practically examined has to be practice. More specifically,this article will focus on the possibilities and limitations with practical examination. Focuswill be on the education of officers within the context of war studies. The article approachesthe issue on the basis of the legal framework for higher education in Sweden, research onteaching and learning in higher education and practice at the Swedish Defence University. Theoverall purpose is to understand practical examination with regard to what is allowed, howit is done with judicial security, and how it can be done in practice. The article also discusseswhat should be practically examined and how this should be done.
Preparing the elective course in Ground Operations for next years Higher Staff Course at the Swedish Defence University. New program, new courses. A lot of work, but this is going to be fun!
This week we moved our class out in the classroom, travelling to Northern Sweden to experience tactics in practice including handling winter conditions. It was a great and most successful week with our cadets.
Below you will find some picture showing what they experienced.
