Abstract: This article takes as its focus the "and" in discourses of teaching and learning. Drawing upon the work of Deleuze and Guattari, I argue that the "and" signifies a complex, sticky relationship between teaching and learning, and that we can radicalise our conception of "and" to bring forward a range of different discourses. The argument suggests that those critiques of discourses of teaching and learning which argue for an alternative discourse of pedagogy can be supplemented by the radicalising of the "and". I am therefore proposing the possibility for different forms of immanent and transcendental critique in relation to contemporary debates about teaching and learning. And that there is significance in the apparently insignificant . . . In real life people fumble their words and stare blankly off into space and don't listen properly to what people say. I find that kind of speech fascinating but it seems writers never write dialogue like that because it doesn't look good on the page. (Christopher Guest, Theatre Director)
