"Ways of Doing," Learning, Teaching, and Researching
Payne, Phillip
Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, v10 n1 p108-124 2005
This study of a young learner's scientific and artistic "sensibilities" in and about a beach place adds to the evidence base about learning in environmental education while contributing to discussions about "emerging genres" of enquiry. The study pays strong attention to the learner's quest for "coherence" in "coming to know" about the two "ways of knowing" she was expected to compare. It also pays attention to the researcher's search for "congruence" in investigating and representing her learning experiences. This unique study, therefore, aims for "commensurability" between the learner's quest for coherence in learning and the researcher's quest for methodological congruence. The paper concludes with recommendations for pedagogical, curriculum, and research development. (Contains 1 figure and 4 notes.)
