Transcript of The Uncanny Non-Ideal Student (BALEAP 2013)

When students don't do
what they are supposed to do... A student does not do what
they are supposed to do, and
I feel "annoyed" or "offended".

What can this reaction tell us?

- my role as a teacher

- the students and our relationship

- my workplace and the syllabus What about identifying what the students 'really' need/want...

This can help us to imagine we can design a good syllabus / help the students better / be a good teacher.

But non-ideal behaviour still appears, disturbing this fantasy.

When a student does not comply, my illusion is disrupted and revealed as imperfect. Who am I for you? Lacan and the

If the student is a subject not an object, the teacher cannot then enact their own identity through the imagined fulfilment of what the student should need from them.
