因此,我們於2003年開始,進行了教師教育課程的改革,致於教師的“精神”成長, 吸收了黑格爾(Hegel)的“精神哲學”,斯普朗格(Spranger)、博爾諾夫(Bollnow) 的“文化教育學”,海德格爾(Heidegger)、雅斯貝爾斯(Jaspers)的“存在主義哲學”, 柏格森(Bergson)的“生命哲學”,伯林(Berlin)、哈耶克(Hayek)等人的政治哲學,吉魯(Giroux)、阿普爾(Apple)等人的批判教育學,同時基於中國儒釋道的文化傳統,提出了建構以教師的仁愛精神、自由精神與文化精神為核心的教師教育課程模式。
三是涵養教師的“文化精神”(Culture)。 “文明以止,人文文也,觀乎自然,以察時變,觀乎人文,以化成天下”。 “去中國化是很悲哀的,應該把這些經典嵌在學生的腦子裡,成為中華民族文化的基因”(習近平)我們通過文化閱讀—分享模式、文化體驗—欣賞模式、文化探究—展示模式這三種主要的模式涵養教師的文化精神, 十分注重教師人格品性的陶熔、詩意人生的熏陶、優良道德的潤澤。
