McGrew, Ken – International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), 2020
In order to understand the current social, cultural, and political period of ascendant racism, homophobia, sexism, ableism, classism, and xenophobia -- personified in the actions and statements of the current President of the United States -- and its relationship to education, Ken McGrew suggests that the scholarship of Paulo Freire is…

Regmi, Kapil Dev – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2020
The idea of learning rooted in behavioural psychology has become dominant in the field of teaching and learning for several decades.

Carson, Susan; Bailey-Fakhoury, Chasity; Holohan, Kevin J. – Educational Studies: Journal of the American Educational Studies Association, 2020
Historically, the knowledge, critical skills, and dispositions to be learned in educational foundations courses are explored within the confines of university classrooms, disconnected from the messy and complex realities in local public schools.

Warren, Chezare A.; Venzant Chambers, Terah T. – Educational Researcher, 2020

Smeyers, Paul; Depaepe, Marc – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
The Research Community 'Philosophy and History of the Discipline of Education' was established in 1999. The academics involved in this worldwide network share the belief that there is a place within the discipline of education for so-called foundationalist approaches. This is not, however, to answer a need for a (new) foundation, but to…

Schiera, Andrew J. – International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), 2019
Stemming from a problem of practice in the author's justice-oriented social foundations course, this article investigates the relationship between pre-service teachers learning critical conceptual tools about justice and equity, and the 'problem of enactment' of leveraging that learning in their practice.

Standish, Paul – European Educational Research Journal, 2019
Educational research is subject to orthodoxies of old and novel kinds. The 'foundations' approach risks becoming stuck in footnotes to received ideas, while new-fangled disciplines seek to legitimate themselves in jargon and deference to new 'authorities'. The critical deficit in both tendencies obstructs responsible enquiry. I begin by sketching…

Jensen, Devon; Freeman, Sydney, Jr. – Educational Foundations, 2019
Higher Education as a Field of Study is multi-disciplinary in its origin. Given the relative youth of the field, as it was only founded less than 130 years ago, it does not yet have standalone theories or philosophies as the scholarship in the field frequently borrows from its epistemological, methodological, and philosophical ideas from more…
