Philosophical Inquiry: Advanced Practice Course 15-17 May 2024
Engaging students in Philosophical Inquiry (PI) helps build collaborative, flexible, independent thinkers with the capacity to innovate and solve problems. These skills will equip them to live and work successfully and more confidently with others. As life's big questions are explored, respect and reason are developed and practised. By pondering prevailing beliefs, exploring possible alternatives and giving and accepting reasons, students learn to be reflective, sensitive to meaning, divergent and reasonable.
This three-day course aims to consolidate and extend the learnings from the Introductory Course. Focus areas include: facilitating the Community of Inquiry, creating materials for classroom use, and philosophical knowledge.
Previous completion of a two-day Philosophical Inquiry course, with at least six months teaching PI in the classroom. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries about your experience and readiness for the Advanced Practice course.
