Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Within the SAL (Students’ Approaches to Learning) research, my reflection as a 25 year experienced teacher intends to bridge the knowledge of the past up to the present. The educational system of this century designs a paradigm underlying the Bologna model. Having this background in mind, the present teacher emerges detached from his/her time, finding himself/herself lost between the teaching and the learning. Both schools and universities demand a teacher, whose teaching approach on reflexive learning is both comprehensive and facilitating. It was vital to refer to happenings and stories within my professional path to understand the educational phenomenon on a meditative basis. Thus, the reflexive part of my report reveals itself as the starting point for a work based on understanding the dynamics underlying the teaching/learning process. From here on, the aim is working in the present teaching/learning environments, which are based on the transversality of a subject, in this case Philosophy, which, on its turn, works out learning to think.
