Keywords - Chapter 8: Pedagogy and Curriculum

Curriculum – ties together the micro-sequences of pedagogy into larger frameworks of courses, subjects and disciplines.

Mimesis – learning by copying: memorising facts, replicating theories and absorbing canonical knowledge.

Pedagogy – a consciously designed sequence of activities for knowing with a narrative structure, the purpose of which is to build knowledge or knowledge-making capabilities.

Reflexivity – moving between different ways of knowing, with learners as active makers of knowledge in well-designed learning environments.

Synthesis – deconstructing knowledge in order to understand its inner workings, in order to be able to reconstruct it the ‘right’ way. Also, reflecting subjectivity, perspective and identity without necessarily moving the learner into new realms of knowledge and social possibility.
