Restrained Teaching: The Common Core of Didaktik
Hopmann, Stefan
European Educational Research Journal, v6 n2 p109-124 2007
"Didaktik" is at the centre of most school teaching and teacher education in Continental Europe, but at the same time almost unknown in the English speaking world. The article gives a brief outline of the history and the common core of Didaktik, of its current situation, and of the basic differences compared to the Anglo-American concept of "curriculum and instruction" and the French "transposition didactique". The common core of Didaktik is characterised as "restrained teaching", based on (a) a commitment to Bildung, (b) the educative difference of matter and meaning, and (c) the autonomy of teaching and learning. (Contains 5 figures and 9 notes.)
