Introduksjon: Pedagogikk under press. Hvordan kan vi motstå presset?
This introduction takes a closer look at the six contributions in this special issue, i.e., contributions from Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Scotland. We make use of these six articles as empirical material to examine what we refer to as external, internal and invisible pressures on pedagogy. The introduction thus conducts a meta-discussion, or a discussion of the discussions that take place in the six articles. A consistent finding that emerges in the special issue is that pedagogy in the six countries is exposed to different kinds of pressure, which, we argue, will lead to unfortunate consequences. Finally, we discuss how it may be possible to resist the pressure on pedagogy and at the same time strengthen pedagogy as a subject and an academic discipline.
