Title: Who owns pedagogy? (Re)Locating pedagogy and pedagogical content knowledge
Authors: Dixon, Mary

Issue Date: 2007
Citation: Proceedings of the Redesigning pedagogy: culture, knowledge and understanding conference, Singapore, May 2007.
Abstract: This paper draws upon a study in Victoria, Australia which investigated pedagogical understandings and practices specific to three domains: Science, Thinking and ICT. Teachers working in these three domains and key stakeholders from the profession participated in focus group and individual interviews. This study explored the pedagogical knowledge particular to each of these three domains, and common pedagogical knowledges across the domains. Participants in each domain claimed the distinctive nature of their domain and therefore the distinctive nature of their pedagogical content knowledge (PCK). A final common thread was the identification of teacher strategies as a substantial part of pedagogy. The key issues arising from this study are the implications of ascribing pedagogy to particular disciplines and the future possibilities for a curriculum reform agenda within a regressive pedagogical climate.
