CfP: Phenomenology, pedagogy and professionalisation

Call for Papers short survey until 30 April 2024


Dear colleagues and interested parties,

Under this link ( I am sending you a short survey (duration about 3 min.) on a planned volume with the working title "Phenomenology, pedagogy and professionalisation: drafting an index (of answers) for the operational areas and requirements of pedagogical action", with the request to participate if you are interested. This volume, which will be published in German and English in the series "Erfahrungsorientierte Bildungsforschung" (experience-orientated educational research) by Verlag Beltz Juventa at the beginning of 2026, aims to collate important concepts and selected aspects of pedagogical fields and contexts, as well as the professionalisation of pedagogical action as an index of answers or keywords, and to interrogate them respecting their phenomenological content. With this short survey, we are collecting important terms regarding this context and potential authors. The survey is open until 30 April 2024.

I hope for numerous participants and send my best regards.
On behalf of the editors,

Evi Agostini
