Pedagogical creed as calling and respons(e)ibility
Stockholm University, Centre for Teaching and Learning.
2009 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation with published abstract (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this paper, I will explore the consequences of (philosophically) constructing the way a teacher approaches her student and her task within the conceptual framework of calling and respons(e)ibility. According to Martin Buber's philosophy of dialogue, a person's existence should be understood as an existential dialogue, that is to say that what a person experiences is viewed as a calling addressing her, and accordingly that the actions undertaken by her is looked upon as responsible responses to those experiences. Pedagogical creed might, according to this notion, be conceptualized as a question of the teacher being addressed by and responding to the students' undertakings, predicaments and needs. The suggested construction of pedagogical creed made in this paper, suggests three demands on the teacher. The first demand is about her paying heed to the address, which in turn will be seen as comprised of the teacher talking authentically and of her serving the student. The second demand is about responding in a responsible way, which according to Buber will be put forward as a question of embracing a loving leadership; whilst the third demand says that the teacher ought to address the predicaments and needs of the students, demanding the teacher to provoke and to dare to take risks. By constructing pedagogical creed in this way, the paper offers new ways of discovering, articulating and discerning questions related to pedagogical attitude and interaction.
