Example text

According to Stern (2004), “implicit knowledge is nonsymbolic, nonverbal, procedural and unconscious” (p. 113). Most of what we know about being and acting in the world is potentially implicit knowing. This implicit knowing is built up in present moments when we acted one way rather than another in response to our experiences and thus built up practices and ways of being in the world. Stern argues that explicit and implicit knowledge live side by side and grow across our lives. Implicit knowledge applies to our ability to intuit what “lies between the lines” (Stern, 2004, p.

Just as clearly, it can guide the practitioner herself in refining practice, helping her to act either differently, not at all, or more purposefully in her practice. Furthermore, personal practical knowledge, as a conception of our knowing in practice, points to a fuller exploration of both practice and the potential knowledge that might inform practice. Practical knowledge from this perspective is personal and involves the past history and experience of the person, the constraints on practice that emerge from the context itself and others in that context, as well as the emotional and relational responses that motivate and guide action in practice.

Yet uncovering implicit knowledge can help thoughtful practitioners more systematically and strategically act on that knowledge. Furthermore, in a forum that targets understanding and improving practice, it can contribute to the development of not only new practices but also deeper understandings of practice that hold promise for future research on practice. How Do These Conceptions Relate to Each Other? These three conceptions of practical knowledge highlight in slightly different ways why the study of practice and the knowledge constructed in practice by the practitioner would contribute to the research conversations of education as well as other human sciences.
