Edited by Dall'Alba, Gloria, Exploring education through phenomenology: Diverse approaches, (Wiley-Blackwell : Oxford) 2009
Increasing interest in phenomenology as a philosophy and research movement among scholars in education, the humanities and social sciences makes this book both timely and relevant for educational debate. The book explores contributions of phenomenology to educational practice and research. It juxtaposes diverse approaches to phenomenological inquiry in addressing questions of significance for education today. It thereby demonstrates phenomenology is a contemporary movement that is both dynamic and varied. The book highlights ways in which phenomenology can inform a broad range of aspects of educational theorising and practice, including learning through the body, writing online, being an authentic teacher, ambiguities in becoming professionals, and school transition. Through exploring and interrogating diverse approaches and ideas from phenomenology, this book provides insights into key educational questions.
