Concepts for visualising a professional praxis in education
2005 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
In what could be referred to as the post-modern condition, the act of teaching includes negotiation within a specific context. My interest lies in describing praxis in teaching, e.g. what teachers actually DO to promote the fostering of democratic members of society and what lies behind those actions. This paper explores concepts from philosophy/ethics which may be used for making visible the intentionality of activities teachers are involved in. The purpose is to find new ways of analysing and communicating teachers’ considerations for a professional praxis in an educational setting.
