Lecture: Tact and the Pedagogical Relation

at 12.10-12.40

Pedagogical pacing is a theme that has recently attracted increasing interest and attention, both in educational practice and research. Pedagogical tact deals with dimensions of the teacher-student relationship such as responsive and sensitive interaction, and can thus be said to present teaching more as an art based on teachers' personal maturity and professional competence.
