Imploding the Boundaries of Transformative/Critical Pedagogy and Research in Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy: Looking Inward for (Self-)Consciousness/Knowledge and Transformation
Fernández-Balboa, Juan-Miguel
Sport, Education and Society, v22 n4 p426-441 2017
The purpose of this paper is to analyze the concept of "transformative pedagogy" (TP) in physical education and sport pedagogy (PESP) and research in order to provide an alternative perspective on freedom, justice and the limits of transformation. Although some of the limits of TP have already been pointed out in the literature, such limits have been presented as though originating and having to be resolved "out there," in socio-cultural-political contexts. In an attempt to redirect the attention from the social to the personal, this paper points out the possibility of TP's limits being also "within" critical pedagogues and researchers ourselves. After analyzing three barriers to (self-)consciousness/knowledge (SC/K), two viable methods for developing SC/K and transformation are provided.
