Philosophy within Initial Teacher education

events, events:PESGB

PESGB West Yorkshire Branch events

​On Tuesday 21 March, Leeds Trinity University will host Philosophy within Initial Teacher education – a Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain West Yorkshire Branch Seminar.

The seminar will be presented by Dr Janet Orchard, Senior Lecturer in the Graduate School of Education, and the Centre for Researching Education Across Boundaries at the University of Bristol. 

Janet is the co-author of a PESGB IMPACT series paper: 'What training do teachers need? Why Theory is necessary to good teaching' (2015). More recently, she has published a paper entitle 'Philosophy for Teachers (P4T): Developing new teachers' applied ethical decision making' (2016). 

This seminar will be of particular interest to all those involved with the initial training, and professional development of teachers, and also to those currently undertaking teacher training.
