Term Definition

in education this refers to the oral social interaction between teacher and learner. It is also a term used in the work of Mikhail Bakhtin (1895-1975) for any approach which allows for different outlooks or viewpoints as opposed to a single  monologic 'truth'. This can be seen as aligned with critical pedagogy and opposed to an instructivist banking model of education.
