Social Pedagogy in Modern Times
Rosendal Jensen, Niels
Education Policy Analysis Archives, v21 n43 Apr 2013
The article identifies several key concepts used to describe and categorize social pedagogy. The first section of the paper establishes a framework for considering the diversity that characterizes the field, including reflection on social pedagogy's theoretical, political and social dimensions. This is followed by a discussion based on a holistic understanding of the interaction between individuals and society, which leads to recognition of the profession's tendency to present itself with a "Janus face." The paper concludes by pointing out prospects for further development of social pedagogy in the dialectic between theory/research and pedagogical practice.
