Beyond Collaboration: Embodied Teacher Learning and the Discourse of Collaboration in Education Reform [Book Review]
Graduate studies at Western
Studies in Philosophy and Education 31 (6):603-612 (2012)
|Abstract||In this paper I highlight the significance of Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s contribution to the study of teacher learning. I particularly draw on his notion of embodiment to show that professional knowledge is embodied knowledge and that teachers make sense of their professional world through their embodied action. I contrast my interpretation with a professional learning model that has been influential in Canada, the US, the UK, Australia and other countries. I suggest that policy makers interested in education reform initiatives would benefit from interrogating the nature of professional practices in education|
