The Identification of a Value-Based Pedagogical Pattern Promoting "Development of the Person" in Higher Education
Messenger, Hazel
Teaching in Higher Education, v20 n7 p738-749 2015
The promotion of student development through engagement with a course of study in higher education (HE) is an area in need of urgent research. This study of college-based HE identified that teachers working with development in mind possessed a nexus of core values which were expressed in practice through an integrated pedagogical pattern (i) the development of trust, (ii) developing roles, relationships and a sense of community (iii) active confrontation and challenge and (iv) using pedagogical time and space. A naturalistic, ethnographic methodology and case study approach was used to answer the question 'what is going on here?' in contexts where 'development of the person' was a key aim. A sociocultural perspective on learning and development was adopted which supported an integrated approach to research design, analysis and interpretation.
