IAPC Summer Residential Workshop
Institute for the Advancement of Philosophy for Children

St. Marguerite’s Retreat House
Mendham, NJ, August 4-11, 2012

This workshop is geared toward both novice and experienced graduate students, teachers, professors and others from around the world who have interest or experience in using the Philosophy for Children curriculum and methodology. In 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, enhance their awareness of effective dialogic practices through the use of various forms of assessment and practice using Philosophy for Children curriculum materials. Time will also be dedicated to exploring some of the theoretical dimensions of Philosophy for Children, community of inquiry pedagogy, and philosophical curriculum construction.
