TLRP: Knowledge practices: 'doing the subject' in undergraduate courses
This article arises from the ESRC Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) funded thematic seminar series “Curriculum, domain knowledge and pedagogy”. The authors examine the disciplinary dimensions of learning and teaching within undergraduate courses in the areas of biology and history. Key ways of thinking and practising that biology and history lecturers wished to foster in their students are identified. It presents a relational view of the role of these disciplinary ways of thinking and practising in undergraduate learning, and considers how domain knowledge exists in dynamic relationship with the practices that are implicated in its creation, interpretation and use. The epistemological challenges that students may face in grappling with a discipline are explored, and the intricate connection between the form and content of knowledge is highlighted. The article also points up the pedagogic actions that enabled students' affective and intellectual engagement with history.
