AN EDUCATIONAL PRAXIS WITH THE OTHER

Written by misioneras

Living the experience of the COVID -19 pandemic as a teacher, I managed to understand the russian philosopher of Jewish origin, Levinas (1906-1995). He invites us to reflect from the other who bursts in before me from his condition of fragility, forcing us assuming some responsibility for him. I have also understood Mínguez (2014, p. 90), because in this same vein, he gives the parable of the Good Samaritan as an example (Lk 10,25-37). Jesus Christ, being God, lowered himself into man to heal our wounds. Thus, we have that the badly wounded man breaks into the life of the Samaritan, causing him to get off his mount, heal his wounds and take care of him until he regains his health.

This ethic of compassion doesnt born from the will or individualistic reason, but from the other that forces me to make a commitment to him. This philosophy applied to education is called Pedagogy of Alterity, which is understood as an educational praxis, a moral aid. In it, the educator is always in front of the learner, not as a “you” but as a “you”, forced to be his servant. The teacher is attentive, goes out of his way, takes care and is committed to the luck of the student, generating in him attitudes of trust, openness, dialogue, responsibility and desire to obtain a good learning achievement, permanent basic conditions that accompany the entire teaching process - Learning in the development of skills and abilities in students by their teacher. Difficult but not impossible mission that I had to carry out in 2020. Unforgettable year
