Event description

Description

A series of six interactive workshops: 12 October - 16 November 2017

12 Oct • thinking about thinking
What is the definition of ‘critical thinking’ and what isits value in our day-to-day lives?

19 Oct • the language of power
In the society we live in, where we are not controlled by force, how do those in power stay in power?

26 Oct • the power of language
How is language used as a means of persuasion, and what is the value of rhetoric?

2 Nov • memory and the language of persuasion
How can advertising bypass the conscious process of memory to influence us?

9 Nov • thinking through association
How do we associate thoughts, ideas and experiences?

16 Nov • on reflection
How will what you have learnt impact on your thinking?


Workshop facilitator Adam Ramejkis works at University of the Arts London, running workshops and short courses for staff and students on criticality, creative thinking and (academic) communication. He advocates a think-share-explore approach to collaboration, enabling us to reflect on and develop our own and each other’s thinking.


£85 standard • £65 concessions & Ethical Society members

All workshops will run on Thursdays from 6.30 - 8.30pm in the Library (see below)

We are committed to promoting inclusive practice at Conway Hall. Due to the constraints of our building, the Library is not currently accessible to wheelchair users or those with limited mobility but we are happy to discuss with you how we can make the contents and materials accessible to you. We carefully monitor which events are held in the Library, and will use your comments to enable us to develop ways to ensure that everyone should be able to attend events in the future.
