Schools bulletin (27.11.17)

Please see below details of forthcoming opportunities with the University:

Event Date Event Title Description Location Year Group(s) Subject Area
Initial meeting in the Spring term Philosophy in Education Network The University of Kent and the King’s School Canterbury are launching a philosophy in education network for teachers and students in the local area with the aim of promoting the teaching of philosophy in schools. We anticipate that the group might be of interest not only to those currently involved in following or delivering Religious Studies and/or Philosophy courses but would also be a vehicle through which to encourage the development of philosophical thinking more broadly, as for example part of the University’s Outreach support for the Extended Project Qualification.  TBC Teachers Philosophy & Religious Studies

Bespoke Citizen’s Jury  

Citizen’s Jury is currently being offered as a short and extended workshop. During this activity students will explore and form discussions on a selected ethical dilemma and participate in a Citizen’s Jury to come up with an agreement as a whole group. The extended version offers follow-up sessions where students are supported to run their own Citizens Jury event based around their own ethical dilemma. This activity is particularly useful for students taking the IBCP and undertaking a reflective project.
