#LaborDay thread on #academic labor.
Renewed @AAUP chapter at #Wesleyan @WesleyanAAUP has compelling hist of fac/admin relations & negotiations ca 1916-2000
--AAUP key but not strongest tool for labor
--instead Junior fac self-org & info sharing
Acc. to this hist, key contexts for #Wesleyan’s AAUP:
-- a rich lib arts college into #highered “experimentation”
-- a “Little Uni” w/ PhD progs in sciences
-- square circle: low tenure density & high contingency
-- longstanding Junior Faculty Org (JFO) addressed contradiction
@WesleyanAAUP hist notes contradictions in 1915-17 statements of @AAUP prez John #Dewey & co-found Arthur Lovejoy:
profs + trusteees collab on everything to do w/ education (curriculum to budget to donations);
admin there to "implement".
Nonetheless: profs salaried employees.

On the 68th anniversary of #JohnDewey's death, here's a nice read about the pragmatist's legacy. Among other ways, Dewey's thought was influential internationally through his students, #Ambedkar and #HuShih #pragmatism #jaibhim @saap @DeweySociety…
#Ambedkar took inspiration from Dewey, and others, and created a unique version of non-foundationalist #pragmatism in India, one that used #equality, #liberty, and #fraternity as ends-in-view or ideals. He also owned more books by or about Dewey than any other contemporary author
If you're interested in the relationship between #Dewey and #Ambedkar, here's a place to start. My research and conclusions have grown since this post, but it's a helpful beginning. #jaibhim…

Gracias a una iniciativa de @RedDivulga y el apoyo de @otriual, @Divulga_UCA y @ualmeria comparto algunas ideas sobre mi tesis, relacionada con la #PrácticaReflexiva, la #PrácticaDocente, los #Prácticums, el #Socioconstructivismo y el #PeF (Profesor en Formación)

Es común en el ámbito educativo, desgraciadamente, que exista una distancia – a veces insalvable – entre teoría y práctica.

El conocimiento proviene de un profesor investigador, el profesor docente aplica esas teorías y los alumnos son los recipientes de esa información.
Este modelo fundamentalmente transmisivo va, por suerte, cambiando poco a poco (echad un 👁️ a los trabajos de @xtianolive) y se apuesta por modelos más sociales, humanos e interactivos como el #EnfoqueRealista de @Korthagen donde la teoría y la práctica van unidas de la mano.

Alongside the #ExeterTehranConvos I’m been thinking about the nature of philosophy and research in #Iran within the context of the reception of #European philosophy - thread on #philosophy in #Iran 1/ Image
And the ways in which continental philosophy dominated in an earlier period due to the influence of the #Heideggerians and the circle of #AhmadFardid (1909-1994) many of whom became prominent in the committee for the cultural revolution after 1979 2/ Image
But since then - and it seems perhaps a bit of a surprise that #Soroush was a major figure in the support of #analytic_philosophy then - #Anglophone philosophy is gaining an upper hand 3/ Image

...responding with institutional rhetoric rather than something more humane in response to trauma... #AGLS18
@cplong How to bring words to such a moment? Knowing about Greek tragedy is helpful. Need to draw on #liberalarts education #AGLS18
To put the arts of liberty into practice as leaders, parents, friends...have to repeat your values and then to live them. @cplong #AGLS18
