Worthy Leisure Education: Teaching Here and Now
Segev, Arik
Research in Education, v100 n1 p97-113 May 2018
In order to show the potential unification between studying the school's academic curriculum and developing moral virtues, two matters commonly considered to be separated, I suggest the approach of worthy leisure education. Drawing on the tradition of paideia and liberal arts education, I describe the inner connection between school and leisure and the inner connection between the leisure of school and the preferred liberal virtue. This educational approach calls for teachers to create their lessons, the "educational gatherings," as "events" which are not directed at outcomes beyond themselves. I name this approach to teaching: "non-outcome-based teaching," or "teaching here and now." I conclude the article by describing a number of virtues that teachers who wish to excel in implementing this approach should develop.
