It's just another taxonomy, but this organization of the objectives of education presented at a talk today caught my imagination. Presented by Gert Bieta in 2011, it addresses qualification (the context of the discipline), socialization (social organzation of the discipline), and subjectification (personal capacity building and development). It addresses "concerns the shift in educational discourse, policy, and practice toward learners and their learning.This shift is often presented as a response to top-down practices of education that focus on teaching, the curriculum, and the input side of education more generally." Gert Biesta is new to me but who looks well worth catching up on.
