The Uncanny Non-Ideal Student (BALEAP 2013)
Transcript of The Uncanny Non-Ideal Student (BALEAP 2013)
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
uncanny non-ideal student Jane Blackwell

Educational Philosophy and Theory. 42(2) pp. 196-212 An encounter with the 'Other' Hyldgaard (2006): "the point where the pupil resists by refusing to follow the teacher’s carefully planned educational project—a resistance that teachers often experience as a scandal—is […] where the teacher meets the pupil as a subject [...] something that resists being made an object of educational methods, strategies, and intentions."
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.
