Pedagogy of the Rural: Implications of Size on Conceptualisations of Rural
Walker-Gibbs, Bernadette; Ludecke, Michelle; Kline, Jodie
International Journal of Pedagogies and Learning, v10 n1 p81-89 2015
This paper proposes a concept of Pedagogy of the Rural that draws together current rural education theory and practice to illustrate the complexities of rural space and place often overlooked in teacher education more broadly. We firstly examine notions of size, and then we explore how this impacts on the ways in which teachers in rural locations are positioned in terms of their identity. Finally, we provide a way forward for valuing rural contexts for what they bring to teacher identities beyond traditional deficit positionings dominant in current discourses on rural education.
