International Post Conference Workshop in Philosophy for Children

International Post Conference Workshop in Philosophy for Children in Austria from
18 till 20 october.

This is a unique opportunity to meet three of the most experienced experts of Philosophy for Children. During this workshop participants will experience and practice facilitating a “Community of Philosophical Inquiry” with adults, cultivate a “philosophical ear” by learning to recognize philosophical dimensions of experience and philosophical issues in texts and practice using Philosophy for Children curriculum materials. Participants need not know the P4C curriculum or have had any experience doing philosophy with children or with adults. Advanced participants (graduate students, teachers, professors and others from around the world who already have previous experience using the P4C curriculum and methodology) will focus on some of the theoretical dimensions of Philosophy for Children, community of inquiry studies, and different curriculum constructions. In addition to facilitating workshop sessions, participants will be given tools to analyze philosophical stories and manuals in order to develop greater understanding of their construction. This is important for anyone aspiring to write materials in the future.
