For a long time, composition's pedagogical conversation has been defined by its theoretical disagreements. Is learning a cognitive process or a social one? Is the self expressed or distributed? Can writing be understood as a process, or is any process too messy to be understood? These debates have finally run out of steam, argues Paul Lynch, leaving composition in a "postpedagogical" moment, a moment when the field no longer believes that pedagogical theories can account for the complexities of teaching.

_After Pedagogy_ extends the postpedagogical conversation by turning to the experience of teaching itself. Through the work of John Dewey, _After Pedagogy_ argues that experience offers an arena in which theory and practice can coexist. Most important, experience can fashion the teachable moments of postpedagogical practice into resources for further growth. "We cannot know what precisely the student will do with what we have offered," says Lynch, "but we can think with the student about the experience of the offer itself."

By turning what students and teachers know about writing into an area of intellectual inquiry, a philosophy of experience can make teaching sustainable after pedagogy. CCCC/NCTE Studies in Writing & Rhetoric (SWR) Series.
