Reconceptualizing Study in Educational Discourse and Practice, Hardback Book

Reconceptualizing Study in Educational Discourse and Practice Hardback

Edited by Claudia W. (University of British Columbia, Canada.) Ruitenberg

Part of the Studies in Curriculum Theory Series series

Description

Addressing studying as a distinct educational concept and phenomenon in its own right, the essays in this volume consider study and studying from a range of perspectives.

Countering dominant educational discourses, which place a heavy emphasis on learning and instruction, the contributors explore questions such as: What does it mean to study something?

How is studying something different from being taught about it, or learning something about it?

What does the difficulty demanded by study mean for the one who studies and for the teacher?

What mode of existence does study induce? The book highlights the significance of study not only, or even primarily, for its educational outcome, but as a human activity.
