Notes on the Relationship Between the Language of the Practical, the Meaning of Experience and the Methodology of Curriculum Development.
van Manen, Max
The notion of the practical as a language for curriculum and the concept of curriculum as the study of educational experience are investigated and elaborated for their methodological implications. It is shown philosophically and by means of concrete illustrations that different forms of curriculum enquiry produce different forms of discourse and different modes of cognition or awareness. Thus, the meaning of the practical changes depending on the use functions of the curriculum knowledge. Suggestions are made for methodological possibilities of curriculum work and for linking curriculum thought to action. (Author)
