Knowledge in education: Why philosophy matters

IOE Professorial Public Lecture:

In recent years ideas about education have polarised: on one side are those stressing facts and disciplines; on the other, those committed to the encouragement of learners to make their own meaning. By offering a fine-grained account of pedagogic practice and subject knowledge, recent developments in philosophy provide a means of reconfiguring the issue in a manner that transcends this simple opposition.

Speakers include:
Professor Jan Derry, Co-Director of the Centre for Philosophy at the IOE
Chair: Professor Becky Francis, Director at the IOE
Respondent: Professor Michael Young, Professor of Education at the IOE
