"This study shows some generic characteristics from sports that are of relevance to
samhandling structures under risk. The findings are based on a case study of the
concept of “Total Football” and the Rosenborg Football Club (RBK) in Norway.
Football is a dynamic sport with several factors that come into play and where
flexible solutions are demanded. The case is also of relevance for organizations in
handling risk. RBK’s samhandling is based on “Total Football” and flow theory. In
analyzing RBK, we also apply theories of improvisation. RBK created a platform
that gave both direction to choices and a clear playing pattern. This platform further
ensured that tasks could be executed at high speed and high intensity, described as
“flow”. Flow contributed to both speed and precision in the playing pattern. It is
concluded that the following is relevant for other organizations: 1) Forming a deeper
understanding of samhandling and ensuring top management commitment; 2)
Creating, establishing and maintaining samhandling in a manner that suits the organization;
and 3) Minimal structures can be of great importance for organizations
in unforeseen and risky situations."

"Passion for learning has become a key concept in the politics of education. We want to establish schools where students are motivated, enthusiastic and feel a desire to learn. To achieve this on behalf of all students, an emphasis has to be placed on schools where students can experience mastery on the basis of their individual qualifications. Variation in instruction is crucial for students to feel mastery and thus the desire to learn more. A significant springboard for increased desire to learn can be found in enthusiasm. The enthusiastic teacher often receives a good deal of deserved attention. Only when students become enthusiastic about learning can beneficial learning outcomes arise. In The Enthusiastic Student the authors demonstrate how instruction that incorporates wonder, investigation and activation can lead to more enthusiastic students.

This anthology includes 12 peer-reviewed chapters written by authors who lecture in a broad range of subjects at Nord University’s Faculty of Education and Arts.

The book is in two parts. The first part opens with introductory chapters that explain the concepts of wondering, investigative and activating instruction, and what distinguishes these three approaches from each other. In addition, the basic principles and overall perspective behind the choices of instructional form and the relationship to the student which will influence the learning outcomes in each case, are also explained. This is essential information when it comes to evaluating teaching practices: Why did the plan function well? Why did it not?

Part two of the book presents the different wondering, investigative and activating working forms. Some of the methods are presented within the context of one or two subjects; other methods are presented more generally. In these chapters, the reader will find examples that illustrate motivation theory, more insight into the value of interdisciplinary work, and possible effects we can achieve with teaching activity that is not necessarily out after that one right answer.

This anthology will be of interest to students and teachers seeking to create more enthusiasm among students in the teaching situation."
