This two day course is designed to equip educators with the skills and confidence to develop students' thinking skills, explore challenging subject matter and further their understanding of global citizenship through philosophical enquiry.
Teachers will have an increased awareness and understanding of P4C and how it relates to some of the key concepts in global development such as poverty, inequality, globalization, conflict, power and environment. Teachers will have considered how P4C develops the skills and values / dispositions needed for global learning and be able to use P4C as an approach to exploring complex and often controversial global issues with their pupils, enabling them to make up their own minds about what to think and do.
P4C is a powerful methodology for developing pupils' thinking skills and exploring challenging subject matter. This course will enable teachers to identify where global learning links to their curriculum and how to deepen understanding of global issues using an approach that supports the moral development, enquiry and discussion skills of pupils.
