Abstract

This article takes lyrics that reference concepts in education from Bob Dylan’s song canon to provoke thought about the nature and role of teaching and learning. The article subdivides a range of topics according to word occurrence in lyrics; information, knowledge, understanding, skills, teachers and teaching, learning, school & schooling, university & research and questions & answers. For example in relation to both schooling and skills Dylan, in Lonesome Day Blues, says “My captain, he's decorated - he's well schooled and he's skilled.” The use suggests a positive outcome from schooling in terms of skills development. What is suggested here is a way to use Dylan’s provocation to engage educators into considering the practice of their profession and the construction of their conception of teaching.
