Two Educational Ideas for 2011 and beyond
Bingham, Charles
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v30 n5 p513-519 Sep 2011
In this article, I argue that education has come to a crossroads. It is so easy to become educated that the role of the teacher can be seen as redundant. Because of this fact, it is time to reconsider what the teacher does, and whether the aim of clear communication by the teacher can, or should, be an educational goal. I argue that clear communication can no longer be embraced. Instead I offer two new educational ideas for 2011 and beyond. One is that the teacher's role should be a relational role. The other idea is that the teacher's speech should be poetic rather than informative.
