Transforming Subjectives in Teaching and Learning: Bridging the Teacher-Learner, Theory-Practice Dialectic
Savage, Meabh
National Academy for Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (NJ1), Paper presented at the Annual Conference of the National Academy for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (3rd, Dublin, Ireland, Nov 11-12, 2009)
This research identifies effective, inclusive approaches to teaching and learning. Specifically, I identify spaces in discourse on teaching and learning where resistances to oppressive power relations can emerge, by identifying how power operates within the classroom at a relational level within different discourses. This involves examining my own teacher-learner positionality and its effects on the dynamics within a teaching- learning setting. The case study is an eight-week art-based learning group underpinned by critical feminist methodologies. Using Freirean generative themes I create dialogue on learning experiences in a group of women who have been marginalised in a variety of ways. Through the process of action and reflection, and reflexivity, I developed a critical narrative which transforms my former teacher-learner subjectivities, allowing the emergence of more inclusive ways of knowing, teaching and learning.
