Multidimensional didactics: for a conceptual systematization

Maria Amélia Santoro Franco Selma Garrido Pimenta About the authors


This article discusses possible connections between pedagogical principles of Didactics and Specific Didactics, in order to set the status of a Multidimensional Didactics. The research has a theoretical nature and assumes that teachers and students reconstruct the knowledge taught, which process enables them to become autonomous, emancipated, questioners. From the central issue - Didactics and Specific Didactics have offered foundations for this practice? - it examines the limits of didactics transposition in Specific Didactics, and of normative perspective of Didactics, which minimize the complexity of teaching. This could be overcome by setting up a Multidimensional Didactics.
