The case study paradox: a way to engage Colombian teacher educators in exploring the utopia of social justice
Rubiano, Clara 2012. The case study paradox: a way to engage Colombian teacher educators in exploring the utopia of social justice. Research in Teacher Education. 2 (2), pp. 43-45.
This article discusses the ‘case study approach’ as a research strategy that may facilitate the process of knowledge construction towards teaching for social justice in Colombian teacher education. It considers the case study paradox as a way to engage teacher educators in searching for new ways of seeing and new forms of understanding the utopia of social justice in a country that struggles against adversity. It also analyses the benefits and limitations of case study as a dialogical strategy that may enable teacher educators to explore their personal constructs towards understanding social justice education in order to inform and transform educational practice in Colombia.
