Abstract [en]

In the field of relational pedagogy (Bingham & Sidorkin, 2004) there is an existing problem; there is theory, mostly of philosophical nature, but it does not yet have an empirical confirmation. Hence, there is a lack of theories that can be applied in practice. This presentation is a theoretical contribution which problematises how the relational dimension of the teaching profession can be explored in a more systematic way. Based on a theoretical perspective on teaching called Pedagogical Relational Teachership (Ljungblad 2021) a new theoretical model is presented. It is a relational taxonomy consisting of analytic tools to inquiry the relational dimension of the teaching profession. The concept relational teachership is categorised into a model under the themes of Tact and Stance and then further organised into six smaller units. By using such relational analytic tools, the ongoing relational processes between teachers and students can be captured and illuminated, and support teachers to create trustful relationships to their students. The relational taxonomy can contribute to a deeper understanding of teachers´ relational capabilities and capacities and their professional development throughout their careers. The taxonomy is also an innovative model for higher education, since it mediates teacher activities based on empirical research about how successful teachers relate to their students, which is presented in a visible way for student teachers to perceive. Finally, the presentation discusses how this nuanced taxonomy can be applied in practice and research and cultivate teachers’ relational proficiencies in the 21st century. Bingham, C., & Sidorkin, A.
