Murphy, Michael P. A. – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2020
Beginning in earnest in the late 1990s, educational researchers devoted increasing attention to the study of "active learning," leading to a robust literature on the topic in the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Tourbier, Michelle – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2020
Designing education policy, curriculum and competences which promote and nourish the values and/or morals believed to underpin democratic culture is both contentious and something which has occupied philosophers, policy-makers and educators from Ancient Greece to present. This task has become even more challenging as people and ideas have become…

Within professional higher education, the construct of assessment validity is used to make assumptions about the extent to which students are able to replicate in professional practice what they have learned during their studies through the provision of authentic simulated opportunities to practice. Drawing on the work of Bruno Latour, this…

This article interrogates a key feature of anarchist education; focusing on a problem with implications not only for anarchist conceptions of education, but for anarchist philosophy and practice more broadly. The problem is this: if anarchism consists in the principled opposition to all forms of coercive authority, then how is this to be…

Aloni, Nimrod – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2020
In this article, I am suggesting that one effective strategy for revitalizing moral education consists in incorporating classical traditions of care ethics, East and West, which are very much alive in contemporary culture, into sentiments, insights and practices of contemporary care ethics. In so doing we might make moral education much more…

Galea, Simone – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
This paper argues for the active participation of women in philosophy of education and the importance of their sexually differentiated positions in pluralising knowledge.

Juhl, Joakim; Buch, Anders – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
Scientific research is usually presented as the driver that provides progress and meaning to the academic ecosystem. Higher education on the other hand, is typically imagined as something that naturally follows scientific research. In the academic ecosystem, education often retains a more marginalized position than scientific research and in many…

Jackson, Liz – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
Conference environments enable diverse roles for academics. However, conferences are hardly entered into by participants as equals. Academics enter into and experience professional environments differently according to culture, gender, race, ethnicity, class, and more. This paper considers from a philosophical perspective entering and initiating…

Grierson, Elizabeth Mary – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
Michel Foucault showed by his genealogical method that history is random. It comprises sites of disarray and dispersal. In those sites, Simone de Beauvoir wrote philosophy through lived experience of woman as Other in relation to man as the Absolute. Here lies a fecund site for revisionist analysis of female cultural production and its relevance…

In this article, I rethink the key arguments of my co-authored paper "Teaching Pleasure and Danger in Sexuality Education" (Author and Co, 2013) by bringing the postmodern logic of critical sexuality education theory into conversation with the relational ontology of new materialism. I begin by rejecting the key problem presented in…

Peters, Michael A.; Stickney, Jeff – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
Ludwig Wittgenstein was a reclusive and enigmatic philosopher, writing his most significant work off campus in remote locations. He also held a chair in the Philosophy Department at Cambridge, and is one of the university's most recognized even if, as Ray Monk says (1990, 401), 'reluctant professors' of philosophy. Paradoxically, although…
