Researching in and towards differences and contradictions:
in search of critical approaches to professionalising in pedagogics
There is a lack of socially critical approaches to professionalization in the education of pedagogues and also in the research on professionalization. This finding forms the basis for Marion Thuswald’s article. With reference to the praxis in the research and education project Facing the Differences, the author reflects on fields of tension in participatory, cross-disciplinary research and considers the potentials for critical professionalization.
