Educational Wisdom and Intellectual Teachers Are Called on by the Times
Tian, Huisheng
Frontiers of Education in China, v2 n1 p119-132 Mar 2007
Currently, there is lack of educational wisdom in classroom teaching. Educational wisdom is a kind of quality of good education, representing a free, harmonious, open and creative status of education. The educational wisdom of intellectual teachers is the outcome of the close integration of educational science and art. It is also the result of teachers' long-term practice, reflections and the comprehensive expression of teachers' capacities. The shackles of traditional teaching systems, the utilitarianism orientation of teaching reforms and educational research and the habitual mode of teachers' practice have affected the formation of teachers' educational wisdom. To get rid of the dilemma, it is necessary to reconsider the significance and the value of teaching, to show due concern with teachers' practice, to weaken the utilitarianism orientation of teaching reforms and educational research and to arouse teachers' professional feelings and enthusiasm for learning.
