    Dialogic Teaching and Moral Learning: Self‐Critique, Narrativity, Community and ‘Blind Spots’.Andrea R. English - 2016 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 50 (2):160-176.
    In the current climate of high-stakes testing and performance-based accountability measures, there is a pressing need to reconsider the nature of teaching and what capacities one must develop to be a good teacher. Educational policy experts around the world have pointed out that policies focused disproportionately on student test outcomes can promote teaching practices that are reified and mechanical, and which lead to students developing mere memorisation skills, rather than critical thinking and conceptual understanding. Philosophers of dialogue and dialogic teaching (...)

    Critical Listening and the Dialogic Aspect of Moral Education: J.F. Herbart's Concept of the Teacher as Moral Guide.Andrea English - 2011 - Educational Theory 61 (2):171-189.

    Reply to Avi I. Mintz’s Review of Discontinuity in Learning: Dewey, Herbart, and Education as Transformation.Andrea R. English - 2014 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 33 (4):459-462.

Or, more simply, How do we learn? I believe that until we answer this question, we cannot begin to educate another person.My aim in the book (...)
