The Enacting Education course from Aarhus University deals with various historical and systematical aspects of this turn and addresses its implications for learning, pedagogy and didactics in theory and practice.

Visit the official programme website for more information


In the last four decades, we have been witnessing a turn in cognitive sciences, social sciences, and the humanities: the turn toward understanding learning, feeling and cognizing as situational embedded, embodied activities. For short: The turn toward enacted, embodied cognition (‘EEC’).


The purpose of the Enacting Education course from Aarhus University is to enable the students to acquire knowledge and understanding of central theories and cutting-edge research of embodied and enacted cognition in relation to practices and theories of learning, pedagogy and didactics.

It is also the purpose, that the students obtain skills for applying this knowledge and understanding in the identification, discussion, analysis and communication of relevant problems within the educational field.

Programme Structure

The course covers:
  • Historical roots of EEC, i.e. classical phenomenology, classical pragmatism, behaviorism, and enactivism;
  • Various forms of representationalism in cognitive science, learning theory, psychology and philosophy, which still very much is the ruling paradigm, and against which EEC is a reaction; 
  • A number of theoretical issues, reflecting specific research perspectives/interests of the teachers
