Pedagogical Narrations

The ECPN defines pedagogical narration as a story of pedagogical processes and curricular trajectories. Pedagogical narration requires foresight, dialogue, exchanges, as well as the careful curation of ideas. It does not consist of a simple description of what happened, but rather intentional interpretation involving: "pedagogical questions, concerns and orientations that help discern and give value to what happened, [as well as] propel into cultivating new forms of knowing, acting and living (through questioning, experimenting, fabulating, enacting, inventing trying out, daring, figuring out, stumbling to name a few)" (Vintimilla & Pacini-Ketchabaw, 2021, para. 5)
