Teaching Philosophy of Education: The Value of Questions
Chinnery, Ann; Hare, William; Kerr, Donald; Okshevsky, Walter
Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, v38 n2 p99-118 Jun 2007
The teaching of foundations courses, and in particular philosophy of education, is frequently under siege in teacher education programs across Canada, as these programs struggle to meet other demands on student teachers. This article results from a panel discussion addressing the context of a variety of undergraduate philosophy of education courses across the country, and the principles and practices instructors take in teaching their discipline. The result of the discussion is a strong argument in favour of teaching philosophy of education as an important means of achieving many of the other aims Faculties of Education and teacher education programs have for their teacher education students, in an atmosphere of reflective thought about the profession and its challenges.
