Emond, Geneviève – McGill Journal of Education, 2021
According to Johnson (2007), learning and teaching arise from a human being's bodily experience in relationship with others and the environment (embodiment). Many teachers perceive and mobilize their bodies in rather unconscious ways. Becoming conscious of their perceptions can help them teach. It can also influence their internal/external…

Henze, Adam David – McGill Journal of Education, 2020
This article explores the "daemons" that many university students face by exploring Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" in a creative way.

Rajabali, Anar – McGill Journal of Education, 2020
In this photo essay, I enact how a creative pedagogue engages with artistic practice and contemplative inquiry. As a poet, at home in words, photography represents a creative risk. This vulnerability is felt in the sharing of the work through the lens of (re)search. Hence, I ask: Does it have wings? By delving in expressive forms toward the…

Elsherief, Heba – McGill Journal of Education, 2020
This short story illustrates an occasion of culturally responsive and sustaining pedagogical practices in relation to the canonical texts which are often used in urban classrooms. In it, a lesson on Jane Eyre's childhood point of view and mode of introspectiveness delves into a tale of dancing and Otherness. The story shows that in spaces where…

Liu, Joey Yung-Jun – McGill Journal of Education, 2019
This piece is an auto-biographical reflection on my year-long experience creating a new course called Oral Interpretations and Expressions. Teaching the course allowed me to find an authenticity and identity in my work, which had been eluding me as I conformed to administrative norms in education. Through the practice of story-telling in spoken…

The question challenged us to think deeply about our relationship with and…

This paper emerges from the particular field experiences of three "settler" colleagues working in a teacher education program, each of whom found that their personal and professional relationships with First Nations, Metís, and Inuit people had a positive and constructive bearing on how they responded to provincial mandates and the Truth…

Phelan, Anne M.; Hansen, Dion Rüsselbæk – McGill Journal of Education, 2018
A basic premise of teacher education is the value of teacher agency, that is, the teacher's capacity to take responsibility for one's knowledge, beliefs, judgements, and relationships. How can teacher educators sustain a commitment to agency in light of critiques of western modernity, specifically in relation to the existence of a rational…
