The Pedagogy Project Seminar
October 23, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
An event every 2 weeks that begins at 10:00 am on Saturday, repeating until December 11, 2021
The seminar is dedicated to developing a community in Princeton of graduate students, young teachers, and those interested in education who can provide support, advice, and friendship to one another.
My own experience of eight years of classroom teaching, coaching other teachers, working as a dean of curriculum and instruction, and graduate studies has taught me that many educational institutions — high schools, middle schools, elementary schools, universities — do a lot of good, but often suffer from impoverished understandings of the human person and of the purposes of education. I would like for us to come together to uncover our own implicit and explicit philosophies of education, and to better understand the philosophies of education that have formed and continue to form us.
This fall, we will read and discuss The Love of Learning by Dr. Margarita Mooney Suarez of Princeton Theological Seminary, and we will accompany these discussions with practical applications on how to become better teachers.
