The Art of Language Teaching as Interdisciplinary Paradigm
Peterson, Thomas Erling
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v40 n7 p900-918 Dec 2008
One can extrapolate from the art of language instruction to discover methods applicable across the disciplines in higher education. The paradigm presented by language instruction is applicable throughout the arts and sciences. If cultivated--and there are institutional pressures working against it--such an art can impact the languages and codes of the individual disciplines so as to advance the research mission of scholars in those fields; it can also favor the interrelationships between the disciplines. How the student learns another language (L2) is comparable to the process of learning a scientific discipline.
