Philosophy and education

What is the relation between philosophy and education? Attending this cafe will give you the change to participate in a ‘community of inquiry’ approach to philosophy teaching.

What is the relationship between philosophy and education? In broad terms, it may be about the analysis of educational issues (philosophy of education) or about the learning and teaching of philosophy. This café session will begin with a "hands-on" look at the latter: looking at how to develop forms of philosophical thinking that will deepen learners’ understanding and engagement in important areas of human thought and activity.

In this session, café members will have an opportunity to participate in a ‘community of inquiry’ approach to philosophy teaching. The session will be led by Martin Pollard and Angela Hill at the Welsh Centre for International Affairs (Temple of Peace, Cardiff) who are promoting this approach to stimulate critical thinking and collaborative learning across the school curriculum in Wales, and see it as applicable to other sectors of education and community development work.
