Incorporating elements of heuristic research in teaching Anthropology
SOTIROPOULOS, LEONIDAS; University of Patras
An examination is presently attempted of whether anthropological teaching may to some extent blend well with elements of heuristic research. Since heuristic research gives emphasis to personal involvement and focuses on queries pertinent to the individual, it could possibly enhance the usefulness of any anthropological knowledge a student receives. Such an approach would perhaps be more fitting for teaching at a university level, providing an interesting add-on to anthropology courses that are not addressed to would-be anthropologists.
