Values and Education conference – 20th and 21st November, University of Edinburgh
Are you interested in values and education? The Public Interest Research Centre (PIRC), Character Scotland, Learning for Sustainability Scotland and Lifeworlds Learning are joining forces to bring you this two-day event.
What does an education system based on “values” and “character” look like? How do we enable good values-based learning? What resources can help us do this? These questions and others will be addressed over two days of workshops and talks, inviting anyone who is interested in, or already applying, a values-based approach to education. Day 1 focuses on practice and day 2 focuses on policy.
There are two main ways you can contribute to the event:
- Come along! There is a small fee to help cover costs – £25 for one day or £40 for both days – click here to register.
- Share your idea! Whether you are able to attend or not, you are welcome to send a short video which outlines an idea for character or values-based approaches in education. It could be an example of classroom practice, an idea for a whole-school approach, an extra-curricular or community-based activity or a school/national policy.
In keeping with true TeachMeet style, your clip should last no longer than 2 minutes (countdown timer optional…). You can send your clip using the following methods:
