Persevering with Geography

John Morgan

Resum

Aquest article analitza l’estat actual de l’ensenyament de la geografia, i ho fa a partir de l’experiència de l’autor com a professor d’aquesta matèria, com a formador de futurs professors de geografia i com a investigador d’aquest camp científic. L’escrit mostra la preocupació envers els darrers debats sobre la qualitat del professorat, que incideixen en la manera com cal ensenyar i no pas a tenir un bon coneixement disciplinari. Davant d’aquesta tendència, ens hem de preguntar què és el que provoca que un professor de geografia perseveri per voler ser-ho. Perquè, per abordar temes geogràfics complexos amb solvència, com ara el Brèxit, cal un coneixement geogràfic conceptual específic i d’una certa profunditat. En canvi, l’anàlisi de la formació inicial que ha rebut el professorat al llarg de les darreres tres dècades mostra un abandonament progressiu de l’atenció vers el contingut acadèmic i les complexitats del coneixement. L’article acaba amb una reflexió sobre les aportacions del realisme social i sobre què pot significar retornar el coneixement disciplinari als programes de formació del professorat.

Paraules clau
