Practitioner Meets Philosopher: Bakhtinian Musings on Learning with Paul
Johnsson, Mary Chen
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v45 n12 spec iss p1252-1263 2013
The stars and the planets must have been in alignment when Paul Hager needed a doctoral student to work on his research grant at the same time that I had transitioned from 20 years as business practitioner to become an educator interested in workplace learning. This paper explores the Bakhtinian ways in which I learned about learning with Paul, and how our process of engagement continues to influence my appreciation of the philosophy and practice of education. In such musings, I draw upon Bakhtin's concepts of dialogism, answerability and ideological becoming to discuss how the invitational qualities of engagement sustain a pedagogy of practice that I am privileged to share with my guide and friend, Emeritus Professor Paul Hager.
