O.F. Bollnow: Theory and Practice in Education

A deeply insightful presentation on theory and practice in education that I just had to translate, from O.F. Bollnow:

“The discipline of teacher education has long been controversial. Some complain about its inadequate academic status and believe it urgently needs reform. Others, however, find that teacher training has already become too theoretical, alienating teachers from their practical responsibilities. This issue can only be solved by first understanding what it means to be a discipline, and by speaking of pedagogy not in terms of sociology or psychology, but as a specifically educational discipline.”  Bollnow (1989) Theory and Practice in Education
