About the P4C Course
This dynamic, two-day Classroom Ready P4C course takes an experiential approach, whereby participants will have the opportunity to explore the key features of Philosophy with/for children/young adults and learn about facilitation tools and techniques that lead to fruitful philosophical inquiries. With advice and ideas for stimulus selection, curriculum planning and evaluation this course is especially useful for teachers of all levels. The P4C pedagogy is equally valuable for facilitators, those involved in the youth, community, and facilitation sectors and all are welcome.
