Anderson, Ryan Michael – ProQuest LLC, 2013
Community colleges serve as the postsecondary college of choice for many adult students. Community colleges are aware of their increased role in postsecondary education and understand that they must continue to analyze student populations and adapt to their needs as well as maintain their open access philosophy. This study was conducted at the 15…

Lewis, Tyson E.; Xu, Li – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
In this paper, we pose a speculative encounter between Heidegger and the Chinese Song Dynasty landscape painter Xia Gui. Our intention is to reassess Heidegger's theory of the fourfold. By placing the concept in a cross-cultural context, we argue that Heidegger was essentially correct in that the world is structured as a fold between interrelated…

Weikel, Alison – Journal of Jewish Education, 2019
This study explores how structured reflective practice by teachers in a Reform congregational school contributes to relational growth and the development of an inquiry stance in teaching. Analysis of teachers' responses to weekly prompts about their classroom experiences reveals three prominent themes: classroom management as inquiry, the tension…

Krupar, Allyson M.; Prins, Esther – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2016
Participation has become so central to adult education for community development that even the World Bank supports participatory programming. This article analyses how participation is conceptualised in "Training for Transformation" (TfT), a Freirean-inspired curriculum used in international community development settings. TfT seeks to…

Sittikariyakul, Pat; Jaturapatporn, Darin; Kirshen, A. J. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2015
Recent publications have confirmed the use of standardized patients (SPs) in improving clinical skills and enhancing competency. Little research has studied the benefits residents may themselves gain in palliative care playing the role of SPs. Nineteen Family Medicine residents were recruited as standardized patients (FMR-SPs) for a mandatory…

Pradl, Gordon M. – English in Education, 2019
Amid the ongoing tension between an authentic teaching/learning of English and the increasing encroachment of assessments, teachers might gain support for a "meaning-making" approach by dialoguing with an earlier generation of English educators who balanced "skills" and "cultural heritage" with a "personal…

Goralnik, Lissy; Nelson, Michael P. – Journal of Environmental Education, 2011
A philosophy of action consists of a theory about how and why we do things and what motivates us to act. By juxtaposing the theory of environmental action implied by the works and life of John Muir with the philosophy of action suggested by Aldo Leopold's Land Ethic, we will illuminate the importance of a philosophy of action in determining one's…

Østergaard, Edvin – Science & Education, 2017
Focus of this article is the current situation characterized by students' de-rootedness and possible measures to improve the situation within the frame of education for sustainable development. My main line of argument is that science teachers can practice teaching in such a way that students are brought in deeper contact to the environment. I…

Lakind, Alexandra – Journal for Learning through the Arts, 2017
In recent years, the concept "making" has been claimed by "The Maker Movement." While making offers great potential (and resources) for art integration in informal learning sites, maker discourse is often intertwined with a neoliberal mission. For example, movement leaders glorify Steve Jobs and hark on the myth that hobbies…

Foreman-Peck, Lorraine; Heilbronn, Ruth – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
This paper presents a view of action research (AR) as a valuable way in which teachers can pose fertile questions and engage in inquiry with transformative possibilities. This counters claims of its being at best a sterile method of teacher research and at worst a perilous trap for teachers. Chris Higgins has argued that AR has lost its original…

Lin, Cong; Jackson, Liz – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
In order to facilitate cooperation to solve problems within a nation-state, a new approach which conceptualizes citizenship in terms of shared fate has been promoted to potentially ameliorate the tensions identified between civic liberty and solidarity. Proponents of an emphasis on shared fate frame it not in terms of a particular shared national…

Dancy, Jonathan – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
In this paper I lay out the bare bones of my conception of practical reasoning, which I understand as similar in all relevant respects to theoretical reasoning except that (as it is put) the conclusion of practical reasoning is either action or intention, while the conclusion of theoretical reasoning is belief. I then turn to ask how, on this…

Leiviskä, Anniina; Pyy, Iida – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
In many contemporary democracies, political conflict and polarisation have become defining features of the political culture. Similarly, drawing especially from Chantal Mouffe's agonistic pluralism and her more recent left populism, many philosophers of education have argued that political conflict and the attendant political emotions should be…

Bat, Melodie; Kilgariff, Claire; Doe, Tina – Higher Education Research and Development, 2014
In this new era in tertiary education in Australia, the opportunity exists not only to meet the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and thus redress low access and participation rates, but also to build a system that privileges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledges and ways of learning. To be able to do such a thing…

Opdal, Pål Anders – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2020
In this paper, I discuss the concepts "teaching" and "learning" and investigate the connections between them. Starting from the perspective on teaching and learning expressed in "The European Qualifications Framework" ("EQF"), I analyse three theses on the concept of teaching: the Dewey-thesis, the…
