The Not Yet Seen : an Educational Example from Elderly Care (English)
With examples from a single classroom situation, several educational moments show what goes on between the teacher and the student. The teacher’s responsibility in the learning process is, with a gesture frozen in the air of the moment, to lead and follow the student in her tentative efforts at seeking knowledge. Initially, it is an attempt to shed light upon the "not yet seen" with a certainty that the student herself possesses the capacity and the aptitude to reach greater insight and clarity in her understanding. The Validation/Feil Method presented in this instructional situation illustrates how best to communicate with elderly people suffering from Alzheimer’s dementia. This essay examines thoughts, reflections and somewhat deeper studies concerning the importance of the moment, or rather the various moments that appear along our journey. From this wandering, the importance of being open-minded, spontaneous and perceptive come to light as well as new concepts such as improvisation and lingering along the way. The art of perceiving is enhanced by concepts such as reading and intuition with the help and support of earlier philosophical tradition, primarily Aristotle’s various forms of knowledge and Hans-Georg Gadamer with his work within the hermeneutic tradition. The author also offers an example of knowledge and learning which, taken together, display the importance of being aware of the body of knowledge incorporated in the area of Practical Knowledge. This is one way of gaining understanding in harmony with others of existing reality and of life itself.
