In the concept of “performative play”, teacher education is seen as a linking up of theories in Educational and other Humanities with the everyday practice of teachers. In “Perspectives on Performativity” Anja Kraus shows that the performative paradigm opens up the possibility to overcome the concentration of a science-oriented education in school on rational, linguistically symbolized knowledge and metrical explanatory models. By this, a model of a science- as well as practice-oriented teacher education will be unfolded that is supposed to be open to diverse cultural modes of learning.
