... The science or art of teaching. Some sociologists of education use the term ‘pedagogical practices’ with reference to the methods and principles that inform educational techniques, and make a distinction between the expressed pedagogy (which the teacher purports to use), and his or her observed pedagogy in practice. The former may be liberal (or ‘progressive’), emphasizing the needs and autonomy of the individual child, whereas the latter may be conservative (aimed at preserving the authority and expertise of the teacher as a professional). This...

... Teaching, as a professional practice and as a field of academic study. It encompasses not only the practical application of teaching, or pedagogic, skills, but also curriculum issues and the body of theory relating to how and why learning takes place. Because it derives from a Greek expression referring to the education of the young, pedagogy is sometimes taken to be specifically about the education of children and young people, in which case the more recently coined term ‘andragogy’ is used in relation to the education of adults. ‘Pedagogue’, once...

...Pedagogy Pedagogy and Teaching What is known is always in excess of knowledge. Knowledge is never adequate to its object. —Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Outside in the Teaching Machine The word “pedagogy” points to a set of theories and practices that are constituted in relation to fields of knowledge. It is a word whose uses have to do with teaching and learning in general, with ideas about instruction and its applications that hover over actual educational contexts and practices. In this sense, thinking about pedagogy tends to move out and up from...

...Pedagogy Background: Queer Education Queer pedagogy is an approach to educational praxis and curricula emerging in the late 20th century , drawing from the theoretical traditions of poststructuralism, queer theory, and critical pedagogy. The ideas put forth by key figures in queer theory, including principally Michel Foucault and Judith Butler, were adopted in the early 1990s by to posit an approach to education that seeks to challenge heteronormative structures and assumptions in the classroom.

...anticipates another vital concept of relational pedagogy: in some interactions, the teacher becomes the learner. There is an ebb and flow to the pedagogical relation and, at any given time, either person may take up the role of “teacher.” Applying Valenzuela’s directive to pedagogical relations, we can easily see that understanding the social and political tensions inherent in any teaching relationship is vital, especially one that takes place across difference. Valenzuela’s culturally sensitive caring pedagogy can lead to a deeper relationship between...

Introduction: Revolutionary Critical Pedagogy Critical pedagogy means different things to different people. While its definitions usually emphasize scholarly aspects such as “a philosophy of emancipatory and liberatory praxis based on respect and dialogue” ( Jandrić, 2018a , p. 199), critical pedagogy does not appeal only to reason. Actually, one of the main strengths of critical pedagogy, if not the main strength, is its grounding in people’s...

Without effective pedagogy we have no operative method of education and, without purposeful and effective inclusive pedagogy, we have no basis for meaningful inclusion. The purpose of this article is to explore inclusive pedagogical approaches that may be useful and that have been shown to be adaptable regardless of context.

Just like the activist work of Latina mothers, this muxerista pedagogy functions within a shared love of and commitment to family, community, and one another. In her work on Latina mothers and research reflexivity, Judith Flores...

Metaphors of transfer, relation, and encounters with the monstrous were used to describe these pedagogical mechanisms and to explore questions of “what is the nature of the pedagogical?” and “what is ‘pedagogical’ about public pedagogy?” ( Burdick et al., 2014 , p. 5).

Some examples are “pedagogy of absence,” “pedagogy of presence,” “scientific pedagogy,” “emotional pedagogy,” “special pedagogy,” and “inclusive pedagogy”—and the list goes on. It seems to be a “joker” noun capable of covering a wide range of meanings. So many diverse attributes bring the meaning of pedagogy under suspicion or at least...

In practice, arts-based approaches provide a framework where learners actively engage in materials- and process-based inquiry. Arts-based pedagogies are not necessarily critical, but critical arts-based pedagogies provide a framework for engaging and challenging the traditional content and...
