Reflections on Enabling Praxis: A different meaning of Praxis
2008 (English)In: Enabling praxis: Challanges for education, Sense Publishers, Rotterdam , 2008, 243-262 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Reflecting on the neo-Aristotelian perspective and the issues in the edited volume, Enabling Praxis (Kemmis & Smith, 2008), Mattsson discusses a different meaning of praxis. Based on the examples and cases presented Mattsson outlines six strategies for praxis development: "the agent as a role model", the reflective practitioner", "a collaborative approach", "an indirect approach focusing on practice architectures", "an indirect approach supporting professional development" and "an activist approach". Mattsson argues that praxis development requires well experienced agents that have a broad repertoire of strategies.
