Naming Student Experiences and Experiencing Student Naming


Van Manen, M., McClelland J., Plihal J., (2007).

Educators commonly speak of student experience. But do we really know what happens when a student has an experience? In everyday life, in schools and classrooms, teachers call on students, address students by their names, pronounce, mispronounce, or confuse their names, and sometimes forget student names altogether. We engage the art of phenomenological inquiry to explore the meaning and significance of student experience, by using the phenomenon of naming—and its relevance for pedagogy—as an example and as
a source for reflection.
