Pedagogical tact has been a topic of significant international interest since it was initially defined by J.F. Herbart in 1802—specifically as a “quick judgment and decision” able to address “the true requirements of the individual case”. This paper connects such early definitions with more recent accounts, particularly those that stress importance of reserve, of holding back for the sake of the student’s independence. It then explores manifestations of this at once active and passive character ...

ABSTRACTJoseph Schwab’s famous remark, that the field of curriculum is ‘moribund’—no longer able ‘to …contribute significantly to the advancement of education’—has long echoed in curriculum studies. Although its specific meaning has changed, it still rings in our ears today. It now applies as much to discussions in the United States and United Kingdom as it does to those in Northern Europe—where the cognate field of General Didaktik has been described as ‘quiet’, or more recently, by Zierer and ...

Fourteen instructors who created online courses for four-year colleges and universities were interviewed about their experience designing and developing online courses. Results showed that participants begin the process with objectives and/or with existing course outlines, typically taken from online and face-to-face courses. Next, the ins...

This chapter provides a historical and thematic overview of the most important contributions to phenomenology in German- and English-language educational studies. In this context, phenomenology is important both as a theoretical tradition and a research method, in both cases directing attention to the experiential, relational, and intersubjective dimensions of pedagogy, teaching, and learning. In Germany, phenomenology as a method and as a philosophy has aimed at redefining traditional theories ...

AbstractThe pedagogical relation, the idea of a special relationship between teacher and child, has long been a central theme or ‘problem’ in interpretive studies of education, with the term having been established in English some 25 years ago by Max van Manen. Speaking more broadly, themes of ‘student-teacher relations’ and ‘pedagogies of relation’ are common in both empirical and theoretical literature. The German educationist Herman Nohl (1879–1960) was the first to give the phrase ‘pedagogic...

Klaus Mollenhauer’s (1928-1998) late philosophical text, Forgotten Connections: On Culture and Upbringing (2014) has been translated into multiple languages including English. As Saevi, Wivestad and others have described, this book can be seen as organized around six main themes and questions. Each question and theme corresponds to one the book’s chapters. In this paper, I cover each of these questions and themes in turn, and show how they are raised and brought into intimate interrelationship t...

Foucault’s general notion of “technologies of the self” provides an invaluable starting point for investigating a range of broadly “confessional” practices and technologies over time — from medieval confession to contemporary forms of networked identity construction. Foucault defines technologies of the self as “reflected and voluntary practices by which men not only fix rules of conduct for themselves but seek to transform themselves, to change themselves in their particular being, and to make ...
