This paper will explore the issue of transitions in pedagogy. It starts by discussing the French writer and philosopher Albert Camus and then moves to a brief overview of current transition projects at the Lower Austrian University College of Teacher Education (PH NÖ). Then the author presents a “brief pedagogy of transitions” in an attempt to expand the transfer pedagogy practised at PH NÖ and enlarge its scope to include the idea of transition pedagogy. In so doing, he refers to the pedagogical reflections of Peter Bieri, a Swiss philosopher and author, and link Bieri’s arguments with projects that are under way at PH NÖ.
