Event description

Description

"...the most important difficulty known to human learning seems to lie in that area which treats how to bring up children and how to educate them." - Michel de Montaigne


Teachers' lives are often full of urgent practicalities, leaving little time for the thinking that our jobs properly demand. Giving teachers more opportunity to engage with the big, contestable ideas of the profession is good for teaching, good for teachers and good for democracy. Join us for a day of thinking about what we do and why we do it.


Speakers confirmed

Gert Biesta - Professor of Education, Brunel University

Judith Suissa - Professor of Philosophy of Education, UCL

Jonathan Wolff - Blavatnik Professor of Public Policy, University of Oxford - Fake news and twisted values: political philosophy in the age of social media.

Andrew Davis - Honorary Research Fellow, Durham University - The very idea of an 'evidence-based' teaching method. Educational Research and the Practitioner
