Narrative learning in civic education: A theoretical framework

Whilst research into the theory and practice of narrative learning in adult and religious education has gained popularity in the last decade, this type of research is still scarce in the area of civic education. This article reports the first results of a theoretical social scientific inquiry into key characteristics of narrative learning in democratic citizenship education. The framework for narrative learning in civic education that resulted from this study envisions how students can develop their narratives on three components of democratic citizenship identity (citizenship philosophy; civic self-image and democratic learning experiences) through learning from narratives; through engaging in the process of narrating; and through locating one’s citizenship narratives. By developing the framework this study aims to contribute to the theory and practice of education for personal, civic and professional development.

  • Het tijdschrift Pedagogiek stelt zich ten doel de wetenschappelijke discussie over opvoeding, onderwijs en vorming binnen het Nederlands taalgebied (Nederland en Vlaanderen) te stimuleren en te ondersteunen. Pedagogiek beoogt naast een bijdrage aan het wetenschappelijke debat ook de maatschappelijke discussie op de terreinen van opvoeding, onderwijs en vorming te bevorderen. Bijdragen zullen dan ook uitdrukkelijk worden beoordeeld op zowel hun wetenschappelijke als maatschappelijke relevantie. Pedagogiek biedt: (1) wetenschappelijke verslagen van empirisch, theoretisch en historisch onderzoek op het gebied van opvoeding, onderwijs en vorming, alsmede review studies op onderhavige terreinen; (2) opiniërende bijdragen van wetenschappelijk niveau (Forumbijdragen); (3) boekbesprekingen.

    The journal Pedagogiek (Pedagogy) aims to stimulate and support the scholarly discourse on child rearing, education and training within the Dutch language area (The Netherlands and the Flemish region). Pedagogiek strives to contribute to the scholarly debate, but also desires to boost the public debate on the subject of child rearing, education and training. Therefore, contributions will be judged explicitly on both their scholarly merit and their social relevance. Pedagogiek offers: (1) scholarly articles reporting on empirical, theoretical and historical research in the field of child rearing, education and training, and review studies in the same field; (2) opinion pieces on a scholarly level (panel discussions); (3) book reviews.
