Getting Medieval on Education: Integrating Classical Theory and Medieval Pedagogy in Modern Liberal Arts Classes
Klauke, Jonathan
Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, v12 n2 p68-88 Jun 2019
This article explores the historical importance of argument and self-learning within the structure of liberal arts education and how these can be applied to the design of university and community college general education classes to help students develop skills in effective communication, critical thinking and self-learning. Research in classical and medieval theories of education, the liberal arts and pedagogy are used to clarify the purpose of higher education (teaching students how to learn without the aid of a teacher) and explore historical and modern pedagogies designed to achieve that purpose. A case study from an introductory history course designed based on medieval pedagogies provides examples of implementing these pedagogies, as well as assessment from three years of teaching it in both community college and university classrooms.
