Bio-Pedagogical Self-Reflection in PETE: Reawakening the Ethical Conscience and Purpose in Pedagogy and Research
Fernandez-Balboa, Juan-Miguel
Sport, Education and Society, v14 n2 p147-163 May 2009
What guides, in ethical terms, our teaching and research in physical education teacher education (PETE)? This is hard to say, because, by and large, the literature in this field has not addressed this question. To shed some light on this matter, in this paper (a) I analyze some reasons for this lack of analysis; (b) I draw from well-known intellectuals to argue for the need to incorporate our "self" back into our writings and teachings in PETE in order to enhance our ethical consciousness as the basis of our work; (c) I propose, and explain the process of, bio-pedagogical self-reflection (BPSR) as a viable means to explore the roots of our professional beliefs and actions and reawaken our ethical conscience in connection to research and pedagogy PETE; and (d) I share a personal story-reflection based on BPSR. (Contains 8 notes.)
