Deep Reflection on My Pedagogical Transformations

Gilbert S. Suzawa

Abstract


This retrospective essay contains my reflection on the deep concept of ambiguity (uncertainty) and a concomitant epistemological theory that all of our human knowledge is ultimately self-referential in nature. This new epistemological perspective is subsequently utilized as a platform for gaining insights into my experiences in conjunction with the design and teaching practices manifested in an introductory economics course that I taught for more than thirty-five years at an American university. This exposition is in the first person because I believe that is the primary way that we gain a meaningful grasp of the educational (transactional) enterprise that many of us participate in.
