The University of East Anglia, in partnership with Philosophy4Children, would like to invite teachers to a special event to explore the role Philosophy plays, and can play, in a student’s life across the whole student lifecycle. The event will be hosted by our School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies.
Educating Future Philosophers will bring teachers and university academics together to network and to share experiences about teaching Philosophy and using Philosophy in the classroom in both the school and university environment. Our aim is to look anew at Philosophy and collaboratively find ways in which to improve the teaching and application of Philosophy across the whole student lifecycle.
The event will consist of three sessions, a buffet dinner and drinks. These three sessions will cover primary, secondary and Higher Education discussion. The primary session will be led by Philosophy4Children, whilst for the secondary session a panel of secondary teachers will share their own experiences of teaching Philosophy and then answer any questions from delegates. The Higher Education session will explore how Philosophy is taught at university, and how the study of Philosophy could be more cohesive.
The event is free to attend but must be pre-booked. We will also reimburse travel expenses.
Date and time: 28 April 2015, 17.00 – 20.00
