EdLab CPD professional development book club

EDLAB is looking to start a book group as part of our CPD offer. UCM lecturer and BoE Chair Peter Vermeer will facilitate this activity. We will start off by reading “Education in the Open Society – Karl Popper and Schooling” by Richard Bailey and discussing the relevance of this book for our (CCCS) educational philosophy.

This activity is open to all UM teaching staff who are eligible for CPD.

For the FASoS workshop offer, see here.

Read to succeed: Professional development book club

“In the book it is argued that epistemology, or the theory of knowledge, must lie at the heart of every educational theory, whether it is explicit or not.”

This activity is open to all UM teaching staff who are eligible for CPD (with a minimum of 8 people required to go ahead). The format of how we will discuss the content will be on the agenda for the first meeting, so together we can decide how to shape the club and go forward.

“Popper’s fundamental insight was that knowledge grows, not through the build-up of certain information but through continual correction, alteration and rejection of earlier knowledge.”

Register your interest here, before 31 March.
